Activism in the age of terror

Activism In The Age Of Terror

Like this podcast? rabble is reader-supported journalism. Chip in to keep stories like these coming.

Peabody Energy is a massive coal company that recently filed for bankruptcy, and during these proceedings has revealed the monumental degree to which this company was funding public deception and political lobbying around science denial regarding climate change. The question is, was this a lone wolf? A bad actor? Or the norm…

This weeks top eco-news:

In the middle of the program we take a bit of a break from the heavy news to chat with Toronto's music station voice from CHUM FM for the last 40 years Ingrid Schumacher. Ingrid talks about her thoughts on how Toronto has grown up in the last 40 years, animal cruelty and her ability to use her giant microphone to talk about important issues of the day as a music programmer.

Finally Stefan and Daryn can't NOT mention the horrific shooting over the weekend, Stefan was already writing a piece about activism in the age of global terror, and so we preview that with some comments about recent events at the end of the program.

This weeks music:

Weaves "One More" and Dan Mangan "Race To The Bottom"

Thank you for reading this story...

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.

If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.

We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
