In this extended episode we talk to Tyler Shipley, author of Ottawa and Empire: Canada and the Military Coup in Honduras, about his new book, and the coup he witnessed firsthand.

In his book, Shipley uses the 2009 coup in Honduras as a clear example of Canada's imperial ambitions, and argues that the Canadian state holds an independent agenda, not always beholden to its more powerful neighbour to the south.

We also discuss Canadian (left) nationalism more broadly and the need to build an opposition to it through sports and other elements of mainstream culture.
