Season 2 of The Hum returns on rabble with Scott Jones and Laura Marie Wayne joining hosts Gilad Cohen and Simona Ramkisson. On October 12, 2013, Scott Jones’ life changed in an instant when he was left paralyzed from the waist down in an anti-gay hate crime. Scott and his close friend, Laura Marie Wayne sit down with us to discuss toxic masculinity, the hesitation of naming hate crimes and how Scott has moved on since the attack.
Hosted by Gilad Cohen (Founder, JAYU) and Simona Ramkisson.
Produced and edited by Brandon Fragomeni and Alex Castellani.
The show is a JAYU production. JAYU is a Toronto-based charity that shares human rights stories through the arts. JAYU has an annual Human Rights Film Festival, a photography empowerment project and more. You can learn more about JAYU here.

Thank you for reading this story…
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
