EP34: Gord and Nora’s Infinite Liberal Minority (ft. Nora Loreto)

Canada’s federal election is over. And if you were expecting a boring, uninspired contest followed by a return to the status quo, you weren’t disappointed. Zombie politics shuffles along trailing dead ideas and dead dogmas.

On this episode, host Gordon Katic sits down with independent journalist, author, and podcaster Nora Loreto for a wide-ranging conversation about Canada’s status quo. Nora has been tirelessly documenting the COVID-19 pandemic and systemic under-reporting of deaths in long term care. Some academics have taken notice, but few journalists. We ask Nora about the early days of the pandemic and our blinds spots, what we have (and haven’t) learned, and prevailing COVID-19 myths.
