(Détours) Besoin de légèreté

7/20/2024
D’après le Digital News Report 2024, 40% des Canadiens évitent souvent ou parfois de s’informer. Derrière cette fatigue informationnelle se trouvent différentes raisons comme l’accumulation de mauvaises nouvelles, leur quantité, leur piètre qualité et les émotions qu’elles nous font ressentir. Emilie Nicolas en parle avec la psychologue clinicienne, autrice et chroniqueuse Nathalie Plaat. Ensemble, elles analysent ce phénomène et s’interrogent sur la manière d’y faire face. En deuxième partie d’émission, on s’intéresse à la démocratisation de la psychologie et le rôle, parfois ambivalent, qu’elle joue dans l’espace public et l’espace médiatique. Université Laval’s “Centre d’études sur les médias” 2024 Digital News Report shows 40 per cent of Canadians often or sometimes stay away from the news. They’re doing it to avoid all the “bad” news: the sheer quantity of it, the poor quality of it, how it makes us feel, and how it piles up day after day. How do we deal with the seemingly never-ending bad-news cycle? Emilie Nicolas discusses this phenomenon with clinical psychologist, author and columnist Nathalie Plaat. In the second part of the show, Emilie and Nathalie look at the democratization of psychology, and the sometimes-ambivalent role it plays in both the public space and the media sphere.

The Last Ambulance

7/15/2024
For forty years, Hal Newman worked in Emergency Medical Services. After retiring, he decided to start an online platform, The Last Ambulance, where he investigates the problems he saw in the EMS system. Messages started pouring in from EMS workers from across the country. Now his platform has become a voice for many health care and emergency service workers who are demoralized, exhausted, hanging on by a thread – and who are afraid to speak publicly about what is happening inside the system. Despite having worked in the system for so long, he didn’t realize just how broken it was until he started publishing The Last Ambulance.

Dear Taliban: Part Three

7/9/2024
In our final episode, Investigative Reporter Molly Thomas showcases the hopes and frustrations of three Afghan girls, many years after the Taliban takeover. In the spring of 2023, The Michener-Deacon Fellowship for Investigative Reporting was awarded to then CTV W5 correspondent, Molly Thomas, for her special project on education in Afghanistan. Then, as part of a series of nation-wide cuts from Bell Media, Molly was laid off and the story was shelved. That’s where Canadaland stepped in. We’ve teamed up with Molly and the Michener-Deacon Fellowship to produce Dear Taliban, a new three-part investigation. Today we share episode two. Dear Taliban spans three continents, taking listeners from the vice-regal pomp and ceremony of Rideau Hall, to one of the toughest hostile-training programs in the world — all to prepare her for a complex and volatile area of South Asia.

(Détours) Une guerre en chasse une autre

7/6/2024
En février 2022, les grands médias occidentaux envoyaient des journalistes en Ukraine couvrir les premiers temps de l’invasion russe. Émissions spéciales, directs avec l’Ukraine et dossiers consacrés à la guerre fleurissaient dans les journaux, à la radio et au téléjournal. Qu’en est-il aujourd’hui, alors que le conflit israelo-palestinien occupe les esprits? Emilie reçoit Pierre Alonso, journaliste indépendant installé à Kyiv, pour faire le point sur deux années de journalisme de guerre et sur la vie quotidienne dans un pays encore sous les bombes. Dans la deuxième partie de l’émission, Emilie et Pierre s’intéressent aux journalistes ukrainiens et à leur travail. Limités par la loi martiale imposant des contraintes éditoriales, les journalistes locaux réinventent leur rôle tout en menant une lutte acharnée contre la corruption. In February 2022, major Western media outlets sent journalists to Ukraine to cover the early stages of the Russian invasion. Special shows, direct broadcasts with Ukraine and long pieces devoted to the war flourished in the newspapers, on the radio and on television. What about today, now that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is on everyone's minds? Emilie speaks with Pierre Alonso, an independent journalist based in Kyiv, to take stock of two years of war journalism and daily life in a country still under siege. In the second part of the show, Emilie and Pierre look at Ukrainian journalists and their work. Limited by martial law imposing editorial constraints, local journalists are reinventing their role while leading a fierce fight against corruption.

Brain Disease ‘Mystery’ Still Unsolved, Scientists Say

7/1/2024
“All I will say is that my scientific opinion is that there is something real going on in New Brunswick that absolutely cannot be explained by the bias or personal agenda of an individual neurologist.” Those are the words of Dr. Michael Coulthart, a microbiologist employed by our federal government, specifically by Public Health Canada. He’s talking about the mysterious neurological disease that is striking down people in New Brunswick. We were not supposed to read his words. They are from a leaked email obtained by Canadaland, first published by the newspaper The Guardian. Then there was another leaked email. Doctor Samuel Weiss, a neuroscientist and the scientific director of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research. In his leaked email, he states, “I felt incredibly optimistic that an all out government effort to unravel the mystery was in the cards. However, in short order, the scientific effort was shut down at the request of the governments.” It’s nine years since the first case was documented. The numbers, by some reports, have grown to over 300 suspected cases. And we still have no answers. Our reporters, Cherise Sucheran and Sarah Lawrynuik present the latest instalment in our ongoing investigation.

How They Crushed Wikileaks

6/24/2024
This was a time when Assange and other punks like him were running circles around governments. It seemed like the ability for the powers that be to keep secrets was over. It was just done. Thanks to Assange et al we were going to know if a cell phone company was surveying everyone. We were going to know if a government assassinated a bunch of people who turned out to be journalists. We were going to know. And between Anonymous and Wikileaks and Edward Snowden, it was happening in a way that felt like it was a force of nature, and there was no containing it. The authorities, what could they do? Information wanted to be free. Then, it all ended. Julian Assange has been rotting away in Belmarsh prison in the UK. Edward Snowden tweets from Russia. Wikileaks. When's the last time they released anything? The Empire struck back. There were arrests, there were accusations, and the machine was surprisingly effective and merciless in containing the free flow of information and government secrets. That's what happened to all those guys. You don't hear about them much anymore. But what about Jacob Appelbaum? What about that guy? No, nothing? Name doesn't ring a bell? Jacob Appelbaum was known to the authorities as Wikileaks Associate Number Three. He was also once the toast of the cyber community, feted by European politcos, and making red carpet appearances. Then the accusations came. And it all ended for Appelbaum. Just like that nobody wanted to talk about Jacob Appelbaum. But we do.

(Détours) France: Tapis rouge pour l'extrême droite

6/22/2024
Après des résultats record aux élections européennes, l’extrême droite française est en passe de remporter les législatives. Si certains sont surpris, plusieurs observateurs ont remarqué que les idées d’extrême droite sont omniprésentes dans les médias depuis des années maintenant, notamment sur la chaîne télévisée CNews. Comment se déroule ce processus de banalisation? Quelles stratégies sont employées par les journalistes et les éditorialistes de CNews pour encourager la montée de l’extrême droite? Le journaliste de Médiapart Yunnes Abzouz en parle avec Emilie et démonte, brique par brique, la méthode CNews. Dans la deuxième partie de l’émission, on se tourne vers l’éditorialiste québécois préféré des médias français, et en particulier de CNews: Mathieu Bock-Côté. Yunnes explique comment le chroniqueur, auteur et sociologue emploie les mêmes stratagèmes que CNews, levant le voile sur les ressorts discursifs de la désormais célèbre “méthode MBC”. After record results in the European elections, the French far right is on the verge of winning the legislative elections. While some are surprised, several observers have noticed that far-right ideas have been omnipresent in the media for years now, notably on the television channel CNews. How does this process of trivialization take place? What strategies are used by CNews journalists and editorialists to encourage the rise of the far right? Médiapart journalist Yunnes Abzouz talks about it with Emilie and dismantles, brick by brick, the CNews method. In the second part of the show, we turn to the favourite Quebec columnist of the French media, and in particular of CNews: Mathieu Bock-Côté. Yunnes explains how the columnist, author and sociologist uses the same stratagems as CNews, lifting the veil on the discourse of the now famous “MBC method’.

(Short Cuts) Did Beijing Tamper With the Globe and Mail?

6/20/2024
Can a newspaper commit treason? The NSICOP report singles out China as the biggest foreign influence on Canadian media (and it’s more than just advertorial inserts.) Joanna Chiu joins us to unpack the scale and scope of foreign propaganda campaigns in Canada. Is the daily coverage of campus protest encampments a form of bias, and what sorts of stories are getting missed as a result? Jesse responds to some tough questions about bias in the coverage of the war in Gaza. Clarification (June 21, 2024, 12:20pm ET): an unclear statement in an earlier version of this episode could be interpreted to mean that Shree Paradkar spread messages advocating for the ethnic cleansing of Jews from Israel, which she did not. This statement should have been that Shree Paradkar spread messages from someone (Amanda Gelender) who has advocated for the ethnic cleansing of Jews from Israel.

Nature is SO Gay

6/17/2024
When Canadaland commissioned its new series “A Field Guide to Gay Animals” (listen to it here), the topic wasn’t really in the news. But since then, it’s started to take the world by storm. From rage on the extreme right, a documentary series on Peacock, to the first photos of humpback whale sex being male-male. And the relevance is more important than ever, legislation across Canada and the United States regularly denies queer rights, sometimes based on old-school notions that sex is about reproduction and the animal kingdom proves it. Except it doesn’t… 25 years ago, one Canadian scientist wrote a book that detailed the history and science of gay animals: Biological Exuberance. Today, podcast hosts Owen Ever and Laine Kaplan Levenson join Jesse to talk about the wonderful world of gay animals.

Dear Taliban: Part One

6/10/2024
Less than a year ago, Investigative Reporter and former Network Anchor Molly Thomas had her dream job as a Correspondent for CTV’s flagship show, W5; with the backing of this team, she applied for the most prestigious fellowship in Canadian journalism, the Michener-Deacon Award. Molly won the Michener-Deacon fellowship for her special project on education in Afghanistan, the only country in the world where women and girls can't go to school. Then, as part of a series of nation-wide cuts from Bellmedia (who owns CTV), Molly was laid off and the story was shelved. That’s where Canadaland stepped in. We’ve teamed up with Molly and the Michener-Deacon Fellowship to produce Dear Taliban, a new 3-part investigation that begins today. Dear Taliban spans three continents, taking listeners to the vice-regal pomp and ceremony of Rideau Hall, to one of the toughest hostile training programs in the world - all to prepare her for a complex and volatile area of South Asia.
