Whiskey & Cream for November 30th, 2020
Host: Ari Shapiro
America’s leading psychiatrist Dr. Allen Frances (@AllenFrancesMD) provides an unflinchingly scathing assessment of the Donald Trump presidency and explores how the country is dealing with the mental health fallout of a sustained period of historic anxiety and chronic depression. He also delineates the fundamental differences between Canada and the rest of North America when it comes to struggling with the global pandemic. Note: “Twilight of American Sanity: A Psychiatrist Analyzes The Age Of Trump” published in 2017 is your tome of reference and is worth a deeper dive.
Conservative MP for Dufferin-Caledon and rural internet crusader Kyle Seeback (@kyleseeback) drops by to remind us all why internet in Canada remains a travesty, and how his social media savvy and grass roots efforts have rallied the cause for rural Ontarians struggling with affordability and accessibility. His candor is especially refreshing, now more than ever. Note: this segment is sponsored by: Cloudwifi (@cloudwifiinc).
Author of the Baseball Thesaurus and 2019 Minor League Broadcaster of the Year Jesse Goldberg-Strassler (@jgoldstrass) talks about the pending extinction of the SkyDome and how the Blue Jays as an organization could approach the end of a cherished era, thus generating optimism from the fans and instilling genuine hope for fellow Torontonians – especially those refusing to abandon indelible memories brought forth from consecutive world championships in the early 1990’s.
Sportsnet journalist and site expert from Tip of The Tower, David Morassutti (@d_morassutti) joins the show to pontificate and elucidate why the Toronto Maple Leafs remain the most inspiring draw in professional sports across a city that’s three generations removed from the last time they won anything worthwhile. Some would say it’s a tragic comedy, but this segment might actually change your mind for a limited time.
