Very proud to share this

I shared a while back that I was working behind the scenes on developing a new media project to cover issues and local news pertaining to the 905 area code. Our initial launch date was July 1, however as you no doubt have noticed that date came and went.

Long story short our ambition was too big for what we would be able to do. So we stepped back and retooled our approach. And what we came up with was this:

Paradise Lost? The 905er Podcast

They didn't pave Paradise. Instead the City of Hamilton released 24 billion litres of untreated sewage into it. Thursday's episode covers three 905 stories: the latest changes of direction on our schools and an education minister with egg on his face; $5 million for Burlington City Hall's front yard; a new stinky mess in Cootes Paradise. But don't worry, the rotting mass of odiferous gunk is 'just algae', although that algae may be a product of damage caused by the sewage spill. Joel and Roland roll up their sleeves and dive in, so you don't have to. Thanks to those who help us put this together: Thanks to our patrons! You can join them at https://www.patreon.com/the905er. Supporting the 905er with a monthly donation enables us to do this podcast, to make it better and better, and to make sure it reflects your priorities. Please consider joining our growing team. The Quadrafonics: fantastic opening and closing tunes! Don’t forget to check out 905er.ca, even if you get the podcast delivered to your automatically. We post additional news and stories there when we can, and welcome submissions and ideas for additional content.  
  1. Paradise Lost?
  2. "They Don't Know How The System Works" – Andrea Grebenc and Patrick Murphy Speak Frankly About Provincial Education Mistakes
  3. Parks and Vaccination: failures of logic and imagination by multiple levels of government
  4. San Grewal of The Pointer talks about the politics of the 905.
  5. 50 Shades of Grey – Is Ontario Heading Into A Third Lockdown?

This is a start of a project that is going to grow and take shape into something we hope is influential and meaningful to public debate. We’re in the works to bring this to Apple Podcasts, Google, and Spotify. In the meantime subscribe via the link above and let us know what issues you think need to be talked about.
