We are joined by long time friend of the show and Jacobin science writer Leigh Phillips to discuss the global coronavirus pandemic. We salute the hard working grocery store employees and health care workers! We discuss how free market capitalism is unable to deal with this crisis, social distancing, the perils of technocracy, open science and more
All too often the discussion on Canadian health care starts and ends at "At least we aren't America." but our system deserves a critical look. Joining us in the midst of a global pandemic is The Tyee’s legislative bureau chief Andrew MacLeod. We talk about how our public health care system isn't really a system at all, could use some improvements, and that privatisation is still bad.
