Tired of being told there are subjects you can’t talk about? Those subjects are often referred to as, “third rails.” Those are exactly the topics Nick Beaton is going to tackle right here.

Episodes

On this weeks episode I talk about the open letter that was published in Harper's magazine.  It was signed by dozens of journalists, writers, podcasters, and academics asking for more open dialogue.  Although it didn't mention "cancel culture" BLM, or Trans issues, everybody filled in their own blanks.  An Op-Ed in the L.A. Times said that the letter was the problem, not cancel culture.  So, I decide to dive in one more time into the cancel culture debate.

All of that and more!  Plus my "Trump Round-Up" and "Tweets of the Week" segments.

On this weeks episode I talk about a woman getting canceled for making an analogy on Tik Tok.  The twist?  She's a progressive.  Will the right start to utilize callout and cancel culture against those who used it like a wrecking ball?  I also rehash an old concern I have over the definition of racism.

All of that and more!  Plus my "Trump Round-Up" and "Tweets of the Week" segments.

On this weeks episode I talk about polarization of social media during the current events, and throughout the recent past.  How we get so close to unification, and seem to deliberately find ways to divide.

All of that and my "Long Term Grievance" and "Social Media Roundup" segments.

On this weeks episode I talk about the movement to defund the police, and how it is an example of bad messaging.  It has caused some people to think that there is a call for the police to be dissolved.  This isn't the case, and when explained to people properly, it is met with much more understanding.  I also talk about the protests, statistics, and white people on social media.

All of that and my "Long Term Grievance" and "Social Media Roundup" segments.

On this weeks episode, I talk about the extreme lack of social distancing over the weekend.  Trinity Bellwood's, a park in Toronto, was full of people even though cases continue to rise.  These people are selfish, but let's not put too much of an evil motive on them.  

All of that and my "Long Term Grievance", "Trump Roundup", "Micro Aggressions"  and "Coronavirus Update" segments.

All of that and my "Long Term Grievance", "Trump Roundup", "Micro Aggressions"  and "Coronavirus Update" segments.
