Ep. 16: Lainey Gossip in the house!

Rosie’s surprisingly ignorant of celebrity news. So, of course, we called the inimitable celebrity and entertainment columnist Lainey Gossip.

Ep 15: Sexist sex testing at the Olympics (with Kate Allen)

'Nth Wave' — Ep. 1: Sexual assault data and Ghomeshi (with Sarah Boesveld)

Sexual assault data in the country sucks. It’s collected piecemeal by Statistics Canada and cracked open a bit more by researchers through assorted studies. Sometimes police forces publish it, sometimes they don’t. And few data sets can actually be compared to each other to paint the wider picture. Also: What’s it like to be a woman reporting on Jian Ghomeshi’s sexual assault trial.
