I like the focus on the women in this recounting of how two New York Times journalists researched and broke the Weinstein story. I also listened to a Ronan Farrow‘s (unusual) narration of his book Catch & Kill where the focus was on the shady tactics used by Weinstein’s team to kill the story. Both are fascinating and important.

Heartbreaking and inspiring accounts of the struggles of Black people, as well as Indigenous & POC, on the lands that Canada occupies. Devastating history, both recent and further back to the country’s founding, that all Canadians need to learn if we are going to be part of righting wrongs and creating a safe and just society for Black Canadians. Learning the details of how activists like Black Lives Matter took action to achieve change must inform our anti-racist work. Canadians need to abandon politeness & niceness as a national identity and do some actual work. Hearing the author’s reading adds to the experience.

Lots of practical information on how to manage our own defensiveness when learning about racism, how we perpetuate it as white people, and how to move forward with anti-racist work.
