Whiskey & Cream for December 5th, 2020.
Host: Ari Shapiro
0:35-8:51: “Music is medicine”
Canadian music correspondent, blogger and radio host Eric Alper (@ThatEricAlper) is one of the country’s best known and in-demand industry influencers. He shares his love of music in a candid way that’s brought him real peace and serenity – even if he’s not certain about what the future holds. In his world, it’s all about survival of the fittest and staying resilient at time filled with cruel, lingering memories and ruthlessly shortened attention spans.
9:05-15:44: “A system so profoundly corrupt”
Marshall Auerback (@Mauerback) is a research associate and celebrated economist who writes for multiple front-line and mainstream publications across the globe – including The Nation and Counterpunch. His academic research and political opinions are as fair as they are pragmatic, which makes him a rarity in this world. And he understands better than most why Canadians should be fortunate they aren’t more like their neighbours down to the south.
16:01-23:51: “An intrepid Torontonian”
Karim Kanji (@karimkanji) is a senior digital strategist by day and one of Toronto’s most popular podcasters at night; his branded series Welcome To The Music offers him tremendous opportunity to interview local actors, musicians, politicians and social activists that have made him proud to call Toronto home. In doing so, he offers an organic perspective of how he’s personally endured an entirely avoidable wave of coronavirus danger in his beloved city.
