How does animal rights activism and veganism fit within the struggle against settler colonialism? That is precisely the question that Dylan Powell attempts to answer in his series "Veganism in the Occupied Territories: Anti-Colonialism and Animal Liberation."

Dylan Powell is the Co-Founder of Marineland Animal Defense, he is active in the animal and earth liberation movements, as well as involved in solidarity organizing with the Haudenosaunee of the Grand River, the migrant justice advocacy community and at risk youth in the Niagara Region. Dylan is graduate of Brock University (Honours History) and current Addiction Education student at McMaster University in Hamilton.

In this episode we speak with Dylan to discuss more about how his personal upbringing and involvement in animal liberation and solidarity movements have shaped his politics.

We also briefly mention the work of Dr. John Sorenson, who recently spoke at The University of Winnipeg about his most recent book, "Constructing Ecoterrorism: Capitalism, Specieism and Animal Rights", which is available via Fernwood Publishing.

Everyone interested in Winnipeg's underground music scene has their own tales about how it used to be: getting past the bouncer at Wellington's with a fake ID, debauchery at Draft Night, car crashes on the Trans-Canada, or the numerous house parties on MacMillan. These tales still weave there way through Winnipeg's music scene as nostalgic tales that laid the groundwork for where the scene is today.

In this episode we speak to Sheldon Birnie, author of Missing Like Teeth: An Oral History of Winnipeg Underground Rock 1990-2001. Birnie made it his missing to documented these stories through a series of interviews with as many people as he could track down who had a hand in shaping the now mythical days of Winnipeg's music scene.
