Our latest episode was recorded live on location at The Windsor Hotel here in Winnipeg, just prior to a benefit show for the Standing Rock protectors opposing the Dakota Access Pipeline. Scott and Greg had the opportunity to speak with two of the artists who performed at the benefit show, Lee Reed, formerly the frontman for Warsawpack, and Mother Tareka, a Palestinian-Syrian residing in Canada. Tareka and Reed have been collaborating and making music for several years and are heavily involved in the Hamilton hip hop scene.

In this episode we look into the role that Canadian corporations and the State play in relation to Honduras. Scott and Greg speak with Grahame Russel, co-director of Rights Action, about the repression and terror activists and journalists have been subjected to since the 2009 coup and how Canada is implicated.
