Safe Space


Why does Canada jail immigrants? Should athletes just stick to sports? Do we have to pick between pipelines and the environment? What exactly is a Blake Shelton? 

Led by Vicky Mochama, a panel of smart, funny, and delightful people walk listeners through the questions that are shaping Canada. We hope to find some answers but if we can't do that, we'll at least have fun on the way

This week on Safe Space, Chatelaine senior writer Sarah Boesveld and freelance journalist Desmond Cole join Vicky and Ishmael to talk about the Conservative Party leadership race, get frustrated Canada’s hypocrisy on race, and laugh about what happened at the Oscars. Vicky starts beyond frustrated by the ruling on a sexual assault case out of Halifax. She ends pretty vexed at the pen manufacturing industry because we are all complicated people with rich inner lives. After his opinion in the preview episode that all dogs are boys, Ishmael delves into the gender of the world’s most famous lasagna-eating cat. Boldest of all, Sarah thinks Donald Trump is good for feminism.
