"He's just another man trying to teach me something." - Sheila Heti
Little Brother magazine publisher Emily Keeler joins Vass and Allison to discuss the "science" of mansplaining. We dig into city policies that are good for young people/renters — Whose mortgage is your rent subsidizing and why can't Car2Go users park on the dang street? In our final segment, we discuss the retail wage gap with Dr. Kendra Coulter and career counsellor Kathryn Meisner.
"The best revenge is your paper." - Beyonce
On this week's episode Vass and Allison discuss the advertising industry's new fascination with female empowerment. Has the word empowerment lost all meaning and is 'Feminism' next? In our second segment, we talk about the role of women as political underdogs with Equal Voice's Donna Dasko. Why Canada needs more women in winnable ridings and a real good face-off between two strong female candidates. Lastly, we discuss online comments. As more and more publications make moves to ban them, we consider whether that is protectionism or progress. Let's Detangle it!
CIUT Fundraising Drive Episode! We chat about lady friendship and whether it peaks at age 25 (or is it 29?) with friend-of-the-show Sarah Soteroff. Why are we all on a slow descent into unpopularity?
We also discuss Toronto Mayor John Tory's trip to Silicon Valley with Bloomberg technology reporter Gerrit De Vynck. He tells us if city has a possible future as tech bro hub.
Lastly, Detangled's resident baseball expert Tim Cozier chats about about the Toronto Blue Jay's and whether the big leagues are still a "country club."
This week's Detangled! Vass and Allison spill on how we spend our money; a Globe and Mail financial pro tells you why it's okay if you can't buy a house until your 38 (And why it is also OK to rent forever); and Allison is forced talk about pensions, even though she doesn't think they are sexy.
