Hard to believe it’s the end of the year. But it is. 2015 is almost finished. And what a year it was.
Today, we round out the year with a look back at the year that was, a look ahead to the next, and a couple of big changes.
1) Karl’s end of the year podcast: We got an early Christmas present this year on October 19, when we finally kicked the grinch out of Who-ville. Stephen Harper is gone. It was a gruelling election campaign to cover. One of the good things to come out of it was that Karl Nerenberg, our excellent Parliamentary Correspondent, decided to start doing a podcast.
To round out the year, I had a talk with Karl on the election that was, and the year to come.
2) Shane Dennis, a musician, activist and owner of the Unity Market, a cafe, recording studio and art gallery dedicated to social change in Barrie, Ontario: For the fifth year in a row, he’s sleeping outside this Christmas in a makeshift shelter to raise money and awareness about homelessness for the David Busby Centre, a homeless shelter in Barrie Ontario.
3) Saying goodbye to the irreplaceable Meagan Perry: You might have noticed that rabble radio’s usual co-host, Meagan Perry, hasn’t been on the last two shows. A few weeks ago, she announced that it was time to move on to other things. That’s great for her. Here at rabble.ca, we’re going to miss her a whole bunch. More than a whole bunch. It was only fitting for her to come on the show and say her goodbyes.
