Crew Roundtable Bites - Ep8 - Fake News and Real Research

“Fake News” is the zeitgeist of social media! It is incredibly easy in our always-on, connected world to spread lies. Even respected news organizations fall victim to fake news. Legitimate journalists sometimes knowingly spread fake news. When they do, and are found out, punishment is swift to maintain journalistic integrity by the publisher of those fake news reports. What about news spread by people who do NOT claim to be journalists? What about bloggers, facebook posts, random tweets...


Crew Roundtable Bites - Ep7 - Right to Die

Gino and JR discussed death education in episode 4 of Crew Round Table Bites. In this episode we further explore this topic, discussing living wills and debate Canada's medically assisted death legislation. There is strong support for this legislation, as well as equally strong opposition. We breakdown the law, explain it's application provisions, and discuss it as best we can. We reference the case of Terri Schiavo, and the nearly five year legal battle between her husband, her parents,...


Crew Roundtable Bites Episode 6 - Women Helping Men be Better Men Towards Women

Are you aware how your actions affect women in certain situations? Can you define “rape culture”? Rape culture is a sociological concept used to describe a setting in which rape is pervasive and normalized due to societal attitudes about gender and sexuality. In the aftermath of many allegations of sexual assault against Harvey Weinstein, men have been asking, "How can I help?" Ms. Nicole Stamp has written a Facebook post to help men behave better towards women, and ultimately, fight...


Episode 28 - Marijuana & Ontario's LCBO

The Government of Ontario is ready to be your marijuana hook up, holler if you hear me!

Ontario will set up new, dedicated storefronts for marijuana distribution, and run the online distribution for approved government growers. Join Crew Roundtable as we discuss how this affects existing Ontario dispensaries, and compare models for beer and...


Crew Round Table Bites: Ep. 4 - Death Education

​"In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes." - Benjamin Franklin No truer words have ever been spoken, yet, while we *LOVE* to talk about taxes and how much we hate them, in today's society we are increasingly leaving the discussion of death behind. ​We discussed the new Ontario sex education ​curriculum back in Episode 11 of the Crew Round Table podcast, and spoke about how people want to shut down the conversation surrounding sex and teenagers because it...


Crew Round Table Bites: Ep 3 - Google Fires ​James Damore

​Google created headlines when executives fired James Damore after an internal memo criticizing the company's diversity efforts came to light in the media. The article started conversations about diversity in the workplace, and his firing began conversations about freedom of speech in the workplace. In this episode of Crew Round Table Bites JR and Gino dissect the controversy into its two parts: Do James' criticisms of office diversity efforts have merit, and was his firing justified or...


Crew Round Table Bites: Ep. 2 - Canada Electoral Reform

Voting is a key element in the structure of democracy, but it can take many forms depending on how the local government chooses to execute it. Recently, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that based on their research the Federal Liberals would not be moving forward with their promise of electoral reform. In this episode of Crew Round Table Bites, Gino and JR look at several options that were proposed as options to our current "First Past the Post" system. We discuss,...


Crew Round Table Bites: Ep 1 - Gender Pronouns

Prof. Jordan Peterson has angered many in and outside U of T with his refusal to use gender-neutral terms. In doing so he has ignited a debate as to how far do we get to define ourselves. How much weight do our self-descriptions and do others get to redefine us? At the heart of the debate is the transgender community, fighting for their right to have their self-description acknowledged and respected. Essentially fighting for their right to exist on their own terms. Opposing them are...

Episode 22 - Are Solar Panels Still Worth The Effort?

Solar panels are the crown jewel of clean energy, turning free sunlight into electricity with minimal wear and tear. But are they worth it? The best solar panels money can buy have a maximum efficiency of 34%, but those that are available to the general public have much lower efficiencies. Couple that with a huge initial investment and a recently halved purchase rate for the electricity they generate and prospective solar panel customers are left wondering if it is worth the investment...
