Whiskey and Cream Episode 002

Whiskey & Cream for November 30th, 2020.

Host: Ari Shapiro

0:35-8:31
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 anxiety and 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.

8:35-13:28
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 grass roots efforts and social media efforts have rallied the cause for rural Ontarians struggling with affordability and accessibility. This segment is sponsored by: Cloudwifi (@cloudwifiinc).

13:35-18:53
Author of the Baseball Thesaurus and 2019 Minor League Broadcaster of the Year Jesse Goldberg-Strassler (@jgoldstrass) is in studio to talk about the pending extinction of the SkyDome and how the Blue Jays organization could approach the end of an era with reasons for optimism from the fans and hope for fellow Torontonians who cherish the memories brought forth from consecutive world championships in the 90’s.

19:01-24:47
Sportsnet journalist and site expert of Tip of The Tower, David Morassutti (@d_morassutti) joins the show to elucidate on 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 may change your mind.
