The Royal Couple of Canadian TV, Ben and Jessica Mulroney - one abdicated, the other got the TV guillotine. Ben dressed up his exit from ETalk as some noblesse oblige to help people of colour get a prime TV spot. Bullshit. Jessica's fall from grace was wrapped-up charges of racism - but was it really racism or just abject stupidity and incredible narcissism? The answer may piss-off some really Woke types. Listen, then complain - not the other way around. FU_Network - content without the requisite BS and gobbledygook of Big Media. Honest, insightful, fun and funny.

After the murder of George Floyd the whole world had a spotlight shone upon institutional and systemic racism and no-one was spared. Social media exploded, protests and rallies held globally. From pancake syrup to rice to ice cream, statues, monuments and street names, we have honored the wrong people and exploited others. The question raised from all of it was... what do we DO about it? Words are meaningless without action and every single one of us can make changes big or small to but first we must acknowledge the mistakes of the past. Owning up to it isn't insulting our past, it's building a better future.We DO know better and when you know better, you do better!__MESSAGE FROM ED THE SOCKHey - this is Ed the Sock, founder of the FU_Network.

In the wake of civil unrest stemming from police-involved violence against minorities and tactics in suppressing protests, the notion of 'Defunding' police has gained traction. Some want to abolish police altogether, others believe diverting money from police budgets to social services will see an increase in positive outcomes. Is either side right? Is either side wrong? Will diverting police funding be a panacea or a pitfall?Stephen Lautens (@stephenlautens) and Steven Kerzner (@stevenjkerzner) weight into this fractious debate and, even they can't fully agree with each other.

Broken Clock: Is Defunding The Police Logical?There's a lot of chatter on social media about defunding police departments, eith reducing and re-allocating fuding or abolishing police completely, replaced by citizen patrols. The emotion behind it can be seen in the unrest in the US and parts of Canada, but where's the logic?? This question's the starting point for a wide-ranging dialogue between Liana Kerzner (@redlianak) and Maus Merryjest about just how deep and messy the issues are that manifest in police brutality.At FU_Politics we take essential conversations and bring them down-to-earth.

If you are listening to this - you are probably privileged. Having access to the internet and time to use it puts us above many who don't. And if you've never had to worry about a police car driving by while you're minding your own business, you have it better than any person of colour.If the events of 2020 and especially the last few weeks have taught us anything it's that most of us don't know how 'the other  half' lives. we respond in horror to the destruction and violence that are tied into the protests in the US while overlooking the destruction of the lives of people of colour and the economic and physical violence they live under every day, generation after generation. It's past time we use the benefits we've received from being born Caucasian to help People of Colour navigate the waters we have already crossed, instead of keeping silent or using our benefits as a weapon to keep others from catching up.Ask yourself: have you been so caught up in your own challenges that you have blinded yourself to the struggles of others? The ideology that there's equal opportunity for everyone to better themselves is clearly false. It's time to relax our defensiveness, understand where the anger of people of colour iis coming from, and see ourselves through the eyes of others and open ourselves to their lived experiences, perspectives and opinions.Acknowledging another's pain does not mean you can't feel your own, it's not a competition. We cannot truly win unless everyone wins. So how will you use your privilege today to make the life of someone else brighter?It's time to think, talk, engage and act.Hey - support our mission at FU_Politics, restoring intelligent discourse, honesty and fact-based opinions to important conversations.

Comedy legend (we don't know why) Jerry Lewis once said : "A woman doing comedy doesn't offend me but sets me back a bit. I, as a viewer, have trouble with it. I think of her as a producing machine that brings babies in the world."Wow.But is there some truth to that? Are women as funny as men?

Men and their hair...some have it, some don't. But hair says a lot about a person. What does your hair say about you? How does it make you feel? Do you judge other men and women, maybe subconsciously, on their hair. I know, sounds flaky as hell for a topic, but there's some meat on the bone. No, that wasn't a euphemism.Hosted by Steven Kerzner (only panelist without hair) @stevenjkerznerPanel:Paul Doroshenko (@pauldoroshenko) - leading criminal lawyer from Canada's west coast and, in his spare time, a country & western singer/songwriter.

Remember when there was a type of music that defined a generation, that spoke for and to its hopes, dreams, angst, frustration an framed an era with music that reflected that?Well, whatever happened to that? What music is defining Generation Y or Z? What the hell happened to music as a social force and loudpeaker?In the first episode, we talk about it, debate and reflect and wonder if the curated existence of young generations has eliminated the 'music that speaks for a generation' forever.

Ed goes for a drive and shares his uniquely-voiced observations of life in our present 'new normal'. Grocery store Pac-Man, idiots manhandling produce, line-ups for line-ups, insincere and temporary public appreciation for low-paid essential workers and more unvarnished truth from the guy who says what you're thinking.And since COVID-19 has hit almost everyone economically, our FU_Network & FU_Politics has been affected too. So consider supporting the only real independent Canadian media channel that isn't racist, clickbait-driven or batshit insane.

If you have kids, it's part of the new reality - schooling them at home. Sure, there are online helps, but now the pressure's on to be both parent & teacher. You have experience with one, not the other. The kids want to play video games or hang with their friends online. How do you become an at-home parnt-teacher without losing your temper or your mind?Host Michelle Budiwski found the idea of schooling her kindergarten age and grade 3 and grade 9 kids at home indefinitely terrifying and overwhelming. But she and her husband have found a strategy that not only works for them but the kids are thriving with (at least for now - fingers crossed)!In this episode Michelle shares what they are doing to maintain structure, education, accountability and behavior at home during these uncertain times.

"I think, therefore I am" is central to philosophy, but for many people it's followed by the question "Who am I?"How does identity fit into critical thinking, and how do identity fallacies work? Liana Kerzner (@redlianak) and Maus Merryjest (@wordofmaus) look at when identity is relevant, when it's not, and how to tell the difference.___________________________________FU_Politics, restoring intelligent discourse, a sense of humour, civility and fact-based opinions to important conversations.

It's no secret that Canada's facing a two-headed threat: to the health of our person and the health of the economy. Many are suffering economically as well as medically. The federal government has stepped up with a big relief package for businesses and individuals. But how do you access it?In this week's MATTER OF FACT Ishat Reza (@IshatReza) and Dr. J we talk about layoffs and what some options are if you find yourself in this situation. Also we look at the governments response to the Covid crisis, including what relief is there for those who are facing layoffs. Instead of fails of the week, we’ve decided to do political and media wins of the week. Plus we end on a personal note of hope in this  time of crisis._____________________________Essential information. No jargon, no pundits, no newspeak, no tantrums.

As if things weren't bad enough, the voluntary lockdown of partners & families in one home, with very little opportunity for stress relief, has resulted in an increase in cases of domestic abuse.What can you do when you're not supposed to leave the house but you're being abused? Are shelters safe when we're not supposed to gather? What online or phone services are available? What can the police & authorities do to help?Millions of funding have been released to prepare for a secondary scourge of abuse of loved ones, partners, children, elders, or even housemates while everyone is staying home to stop the spread. But much of the public messaging has gaps for people who are trying to stay home when home isn't safe.

Doug Ford's Ontario government has been at turns ham-handed, greedy, heartless, foolish, irresponsible, wasteful & mean. And all of those policies remain in place.But it seems the Coronavirus has changed the Premier's sense of responsibility. He actually seems like...a leader? Working closely (minimum 2 metres maintained) with the federal Liberal government to actively contain the pandemic. Was he visited by the ghosts of COVID Past, Present & Future?

Why do men avoid seeing doctors, sometimes until it's too late to fix a treatable illness? Is there some threat to our masculinity in admitting we're not physically invulnerable? Do we think we're letting down those that depend on us to be invulnerable? Or are we just idiots?And why are men disproportionately represented in the crowd that rejects the reality of COVID-19 and refuses to take common sense precautions?Host: Steven Kerzner (@stevenjkerzner)Panel:Hafeez Noorani (@FeezyDoesIt) producer of Mensplaining and acclaimed digital marketing analyst.Paul Doroshenko, Q.C. (@pauldoroshenko) is one of Canada's top criminal law lawyers based in BC at Acumen Law.Andrew Willis (@andylandradio) is a radio host, music lover, and man with no filter - and we love him for it.Aron Seal (@aronseal) is a conservative political activist, commentator and entrepreneur in the Cannabis industry. FU_Politics - frank, factual and funny discussions and debates with panelists that sound like you - because we ARE you.

BROKEN CLOCK - A PODCAST ABOUT CRITICAL THINKINGOne good thing may come out of the COVID-19 pandemic - our ability to recognize the difference between what we need and what we want. Stores are closed, we can only buy necessities - leaving us to question how much we really 'need' the things we habitually buy? What is a 'need' and what is something we just 'want'?With extreme American right-wing windbags like Glenn Beck insisting that America's economy is more important than public health, Maus Merryjest (@wordofmaus) and Liana Kerzner (@redlianak) take a look at needs, what's wrong with Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs (that thing we were taught in high school), what people really 'need' and why Glenn Beck is totally wrong._______________________________________________FU_Politics -  restoring intelligent discourse, a sense of humour, civility and fact-based opinions to important conversations.

Ed goes off on the mash-up of misinformation, the purveyors of panic, people's general ignorance of medical triage, how Canada differs from Italy, why global infection/mortality rates are useless to Canadians, and why caring about the economy isn't putting money over people's health, because people need money to maintain their health!

As we continue to face down the invasion of COVID-19, most Canadians are doing their part & following recommended precautions, like self-isolation and social-distancing.Some noticeably aren't. Either through ignorance or defiance. It doesn't matter which, they're endangering everyone. The government had to pass a law that Canadians returning to the country quarantine for 14 days. A law. For some, civic duty, protecting the health & welfare of the country or their own loved ones is just "Meh."We are not children but yet we are acting like staying at home for a couple of weeks is a punishment of some sort that we need to petulantly rebel against - putting lives at risk in the process. We have to flatten the curve.GROW THE F#@%ck UP.

Plus, who is Edward Fecalhands??Facts, stats, analysis and laughs. Yes, laughs too.

There's been an increasing amount of very warranted focus on the damage that negative body images have had on girls & women. But very little on how body image issues affect men.Yes, it's a problem.

MADNESS!Trying to talk political realities, not political ideologies, with #BernieBros who can't seem to tell the difference between them. Is it lack of comprehension or lack of interest in comprehension?COVID-19 - a global pandemic has international trade shut down, whole countries quarantined, hoarding toilet paper at Walmart, public spaces empty, the worst stock market rash since 1929, the world economy plunging toward recession....but is the panic justified or an overreaction considering in many countries the mortality rate is lower than the annual influenza toll?Steven Kerzner (@stevenjkerzner) and Stephen Lautens (@stephenlautens) dissect the world's departure from sanity in ways that will no doubt enrage, engage and enlighten. Hopefully in that order.________________________________FU_Politics, restoring intelligent discourse, a sense of humour, civility and fact-based opinions to important conversations.

Grief is hard enough to handle, but when you're also struggling with a mental illness, grief can change you in ways you never anticipated. And some of them are positive, like the story of today's guest.In this second episode of our Exploring Grief series, Michelle Budiwski is joined by Paul Marlow from www.tallpaul.ca to discuss how the loss of his father brought his own mental health into question and how his grief has turned his life around as he now dedicates his time to help others find their way with mental health struggles through fitness, diet and personal growth.Through his own grief, Paul is breaking down barriers and stigmas as he openly explores his own mental health and through the creation of Never Alone apparel is dedicated to continuing to provide online help to suffering peers who need someone to talk to - for free!______________________Hey - support our mission at FU_Politics, restoring intelligent discourse, a sense of humour, civility and fact-based opinions to important conversations.

Few issues ignite passions, debates, arguments, tempers and violence than Abortion. But the issue runs deeper than "Pro-Choice" or "Pro-Life."Roze Jardine and Michelle Budiwski (@Butterflymbca)  join host Liana Kerzner (@redlianak) for a discussion about how race, poverty, mental health, and Indigenous rights factor in to the seemingly unending debate on abortion. Though abortion rights are more under fire in the US, where the Supreme Court will once again rule on further restrictions on abortion access, the debate in Canada is far from settled.Liana Kerzner is a journalist, award-winning TV producer & comedy writer, feminist, Youtube influencer, college lecturer and video game editorialist.Michelle Budiwski is a social activist, author motivational speaker living in rural Manitoba just outside of Brandon with her husband and four children. Michelle hosts her own real-life, real-talk podcast on FU_Politics,"Keeping It Real."Producer and playwright Roze Jardine' is a life coach and a youth advocate, who uses the arts as a catalyst to bring to light a variety of social issues for the purpose of dialogue, community engagement and social change.

Why does anger seem the default, go-to setting for men's reactions to tough or uncomfortable situations?Generations of social programming on 'manly' behaviour has created a psyche men have been trapped in and it's hurt their friends, loved ones, co-workers, job prospects - and themselves.So what's the reason men find comfort in anger? What's really going on under the surface? How can men turn off the "on" button? Can they? This is an episode of Mensplaining that men, women, boys and girls should listen to - it's an important dialogue that needs to happen more often - and despite the serious topic, there's also a lot of humour between the host and panelists, including our special guest panelist, therapist Dale Curd.Dale Curd is a therapist who has specialized in talking to men about the issues, emotions and inner conflicts men face every day, but rarely talk about. In 2019, Dale launched themenslist.com, an online directory of mental health and wellness professionals who offer support and information to men seeking counselling in Canada, the US and UK. As well, he and his wife Kimberly Alexander wrote the book Living Lightly, Bring Happiness and Calm To Your EveryDay, published by HarperCollins.Steven Kerzner hosts with panelists from our Mensplaining bullpen:Paul Doroshenko, Q.C. is an experienced criminal defence lawyer with a practice devoted to criminal defence and drunk driving law in British Columbia. His main goal is ensuring that his clients avoid a criminal record.

The Men's Rights Movement - an angry association of men (and some women) who feel society is conspiring to rob men of their rights - and give them to women. Where do they get their ideas? What evidence supports their grievances? Or are they simply driven by emotionally charged rhetoric that hijacks reasoning.Do the main talking points regarding "Men's Rights" hold up to seriously scrutiny? Join Maus Merryjest (@bywordofmaus) and Liana Kerzner (@redlianak) on a journey down that rabbit hole, crashing through 2300 years of philosophical thought along the way! Critical thinking - boy, does the world need more of that or what?!

The Ontario government of Premier Doug Ford has cut essential services & support for Autistic children & their families. The Minister responislbe for the file, Todd Smith, said the government would have a new, needs-based program in place for April 2020. In December 2019, he changed it to 2021. Austism families trusted Minister Smith to keep his word; he didn't. As a result, fanmilies with children on the Autism spectrum are struggling to afford the therapy their kids need to flourish. Jobs are being lost. Autistic kids are backsliding. And the Ford government doesn't seem to care. Liana Kerzner talks to two women for whom autism services, or lack thereof, affect their daily lives. Tara McMahon and Meghan Rigden share their stories, their struggles, their successes, and their hopes, in a frank, wide-ranging conversation that shows that every kid (and adult) with autism is an individual, and Ford & Smith's "one-size-fits-all" current program does not address the varied needs of autistic children. If this episode doesn't tear at your heart, you don't have one. ______________________________Important topics.

Grief is one of the most powerful human emotions. And one of the emotions we know how to deal with least.Many cultures have specific rituals for dealing with the grief of death, but there are many different kinds of grief and many different kinds of "death" that we each experience in our own way, with no rituals to guide us through it.In this first episode in a series of exploring the hard conversation of grief, Michelle Budiwski shares her own experiences of grieving loss - through death, divorce and the discovery that sometimes grief is the loss of hope.Join her as she explores this difficult emotion.

Erin O'Toole, MP, a candidate for leadership of the Conservative Party of Canada (again) has resorted to that old Tory trick of beating the CBC like a pinata to stoke the passions of the conservative base. Why do Conservative parties hate the CBC so much? As Stephen Lautens (@stephenlautens) and Steven Kerzner (@stevenjkerzner) discuss, the Tories' instinctive hatred of the CBC may very well be reflective of the very reasons Canada needs the CBC!  Listen and decide for yourself!________________The important national discussions the mainstream media won't give you - frank, insightful and funny (at times), FU_Politics' series speak your language and bring the issues down to earth.

Andrew Scheer telling Indigenous protesters to "check their privilege" is patently absurd, but it's a predictable offshoot of the bizarre contradictions in Critical Race Theory, an anti-racism analysis popular among some race theorists.In a nutshell, Critical Race Theory is an academic belief that because White people hold societal power, only White people can be racist.Any thinking person knows racism is terrible - and illogical - which is why it's important to combat it effectively! And that means through advocacy and action founded in critical thinking, not academic nonsense.Liana Kerzner (@redlianak) & Maus Merryjest's (@bywordofmaus) examine & deconstruct the theory that "prejudice plus power equals racism" (also known as the Bidol equation) showing how basic Critical Thinking exposes the illogical basis of Critical Race Theory by following it through to its ridiculous conclusions. If you want some additional reading, check out Maus' blog post on the subject as well! https://philoscribbles.tumblr.com/post/171907276826/bidols-equation-doesnt-add-up______________________Important, jargon-free, no-nonsense discussions of important topics other media won't touch - except the radicals who destroy public discourse.

We know this episode is going to trigger some peoples' outrage - but that's exactly why we need to talk about it.As evidence recently shown in the Amber Heard - Johnny Depp divorce, sometimes charges of physical or sexual abuse are provably false, but it will still leave the life & psyche of the person falsely accused in ruins - while the false accuser pays no legal price for taking a wrecking ball to someone's life.False accusations also make it harder for those who've truly been victims of abuse to be taken seriously, and the fear by men of being falsely accused has reduced workplace opportunities for women. It's a serious issue, and we treat it as such. Probably the most emotional episode of Mensplaining that we've done. Listen before you judge. And then think._______________________________________________FU_Politics, restoring intelligent discourse, a sense of humour, civility and fact-based opinions to important conversations.

Men are supposed to be fearless, right? It's part of that whole 'macho masculinity' we're spoon-fed by media depictions of male heroes.Bullsh*t.Men have fears. Some small & silly, some much bigger and deeper. And it's facing fears, instead of pretending they don't have any, that makes men into Men.Mensplaining - Men talking to men about being men in 2020.

An FU_POLITICS special presentation of one of Canada's best podcasts - This is VANCOLOUR hosted by a Canadian rising-star, Mo Amir.Think elected officials are always so careful with what they say that they don't say anything at all? Brad West, Mayor of Port Coquitlam, BC is not that kind of politician. In fact, his candid and often scathing remarks on political culture, communications, and cynicism will make your jaw drop. As will West's biting critique of specific high-profile political leadership (he names names!) leaving office for lobbyist jobs and work that he describes as against the national interest - sometimes even for foreign governments - is a rattling reality check for why Canadians need to get involved in politics now more than ever.  Immensely popular, Mayor West's profile in British Columbia is on the rise as a truly fresh voice in the political landscape. _______________________________________________Support FU_Politics, restoring intelligent discourse, a sense of humour, civility and fact-based opinions to important conversations.

Steven Kerzner (@stevenjkerzner) and Stephen Lautens (@stephenlautens) pull no punches this week: Peter MacKay shows why he's unfit to lead the country & while he'll lead the federal Conservatives - at the same time; the irrational reasons the irrational Left hate the rational Pete Buttigeig, the egomania fueling Bernie Sanders and his supporters' conspiracy theories, how Bernie Bros & Trumpers are cut from the same cloth and more commentaries sure to enrage people who are already outraged or looking to be.Listen.

It's a Man's World. That doesn't mean the world doesn't chew them up and spit them out. Men over 50 have the highest suicide rates. Societal messages haven't taught men how to reach out for nor accept help. Whether our spouses, sons, fathers or friends, there are men in the lives of women who need help. Some may not even know it.Lex Gore and Michelle Budiwski return to talk with Liana Kerzner about the challenges we see facing men, and how to support the men in our lives (and how to let them support us.) Suicide, incels, male body image, inverted privilege, and why every culture needs their version of a Bar Mitzvah!_______________________________Please support our mission at FU_Politics, restoring intelligent discourse, a sense of humour, civility and fact-based opinions to important, frank & funny conversations.

Ed the Sock doing what  he does best - saying the things you want to say.To both the Right & the Left a question: What the Hell is wrong with you people??! Anyone with a different opinion is "evil"; you pick a 'team' and anything someone on your 'team' does you support and anything 'their team' does you scream your heads off with outrage - even when both those people have done the exact same thing!And if someone on your team says anything positive about someone on the other team, you turn on your 'traitorous' now-former ally like a pack of wild dogs!Don't fool yourself into believing 'they' are the problem - thinking like that makes you the problem' too! Righteous indignation does not mean you are right!We're living The Lord of the Flies (it's a book, read it), picking tribes & behaving as Identity Politics soldiers in a stupid Culture War.

Broken Clock is a podcast about critical thinking. Remember that thing people used to do before drinking one team or another's Kool-Aid became so much easier than thinking for yourself?In each episode of Broken Clock, Liana Kerzner and Maus Merryjest (no, that's not his real name; if you needed to be told that, you are in serious need of this podcast) discuss how to bring reason, plausibility and facts to bear on everything from politics to pop culture. And they also point out where people typically go wrong when they don't use their noodles.In this debut first episode (probably redundant, 'debut' and 'first episode'), Liana and Maus exchange their critical thinking pet peeves: exceptions, fallacy fallacies, conflating correlation and causation and more, all leading to a discussion about online arguments over Star Wars.____Broken Clock - a Critical Thinking Podcast is part of Wave Two of series on FU_Politics as we continue our mission of restoring to everyday Canadians the important dialogues we need to have, without the barriers to entry blocked by pundits paid political proxies partisans and radicals that have taken over mainstream news media.

Jean Charest - gone. Pierre Poilievre - gone. Rona Ambrose - gone. All serious candidates for the leadership of the Conservative Party of Canada; some announced their leadership bid only to withdraw shortly thereafter, or declined to run. Who's been pulling the strings behind the scenes to make these once very-committed candidates to drop out?Meanwhile former PM Stephen Harper resigns from the board of the Conservative Fund, rumoured to be inspired by his desire to block Charest. But was that the reason? Is Harper the one still controlling the CPC and if so, did he get other serious candidates to walk away to clear the decks for Peter MacKay...or did he do it to clear the decks for his own bid to re-take the leadership?!Steven Kerzner (@stevenjkerzner) and Stephen Lautens (@stephenlautens) discuss these tantalizing speculations - and if there's a well-known, well-liked non-political person in the wings planning to do what Bloomberg & Steyer did to the US Democratic race?Listen.

(Why is it always about size?)In this less serious, more fun episode, our Mensplaining panelists talk about their favourite boyhood toys and how those toys reflected who they were, how they were taught about 'manliness' and what kids gained by playing with real, plastic toys, in person with friends or alone with their own imaginations, and the importance of it all. Hey - support our mission at FU_Politics, restoring intelligent discourse, a sense of humour, civility and fact-based opinions to important conversations.

As she continues her deep-dive into bullying in the electronic age, Michelle Budiwski shares her own insight as both a victim of bullying and as a teenage bully herself.  Because before we can effectively combat cyber-bullying we have to be brutally honest and face the uncomfortable truths of why bullies bully, where they learn to bully and how they choose their victims._____Hey - what Michelle talks about on Keeping It Real is important stuff, the kind of stuff regular Canadians face every day but escape the attention of the moneyed and political classes. So support our mission at FU_Politics, restoring intelligent discourse, a sense of humour, civility and fact-based opinions to important conversations that the powers-that-be try to suppress with distracting stories about beards and donuts.  At FUN - The FU_Network our shows sound like you - because we are you.  Become a monthly patron at patreon.com/funetworktv or give us a one time boost at Paypal - funetworktv@gmail.com.

The schoolyard bully is a trope - someone many of us had to face down or left us face-down. But then we could go home and be safe. That was before the internet. Now, no place is safe, for kids or adults. The internet has made it possible for bullies to harass, threaten, extort and humiliate people 24/7. Social media especially thrives on adults bullying adults, adults bullying kids, kids bullying kids and hate oozing through society from every electronic orifice. How do we shut these bullies down and how do we teach our children compassion, empathy and respect while they're growing up in an internet fueled age of rage?Hey, look down here...yeah, right here...now that we got your attention, how about throwing your support behind our mission at FU_Politics, restoring intelligent discourse, a sense of humour, civility and fact-based opinions to important conversations.

While the rest of the media cries its crocodile tears over the tragedy of lives lost on a Ukrainian airliner, using it as grist for the mill of political reporting of Trump-centric clickbait, this FU_Politics Report focuses on the real victims - the dead, their families and loved ones.This kind of tragedy has happened before. One of them resulted in even greater loss of Canadian life - the Air India terrorist bombing of 1985, which took off from Montreal and exploded over the Atlantic. There's much to learn from every tragedy. What did we learn from Air India? What mistakes did the government and media make? What did they get right? And how can those lessons be applied to reduce the human cost to the loved ones and friends of those who died on Ukrainian International Airlines Flight 752?Both our guests have very direct, very different personal connections to the Air India bombing and offer their reflections, experience and advice on a very human level.Host: Steven KerznerPanel:Taleeb Noormohamed was the director of the Air India review secretariat, responsible for all activities related to the review of the bombing investigation and the final report issued by bob rae, including coordinating with agencies of the Canadian government including the RCMP, CSIS and Transport Canada as well as with foreign government and working with the families of the victims.Liana Kerzner, co-founder of FU_Network, host of the FU_Politics podcast Hey Ladies, a broadcaster, award-winning TV writer/producer/performer, radio host, popular Youtuber, journalist and public speaker. But for this show, none of that matters. What matters is that Liana, as a girl in 1st grade, lost her friend and classmate to a terrorist air tragedy.Putting a human spin on the news.
