Ep. 1 City Pride in Kingston

This podcast illustrates the story of how LGBT activists from Queen’s University in the mid-80’s to early 90’s, advocated for the city to recognize an official ‘Pride’ day for the LGBT community, only to be turned away multiple times over the years by homophobic council members, and shunned by homophobic Kingstonians. They never gave up – and we now owe our thanks to them for the month-long pride that we celebrate here in Kingston.

Korey Pasch: Hurricane Dorian and the Political Economy of Disaster

Korey Pasch, PhD Candidate in Political Studies at Queen’s University joins us in studio. At the time of recording, Hurricane Dorian was rolling along Florida but the fascinating things Korey tells us about the financialization of natural disasters and the apparent ‘progressive’ stance Big Insurance necessarily takes in the face of climate change translates well to understanding preparedness, construction and reconstruction around any disaster worldwide. Really fascinating, informative and certainly interdisciplinary discussion! Check it out today!
