I’m really proud of this. Give it a listen please.

If you have 40 minutes today give a listen to this week’s episode of The 905er. I’m really proud of this episode and is what we hoped to accomplish with this medium and format.

In other news, the American empire continues to decline

I shared a Rolling Stone article back in early August by a Canadian professor arguing we’re watching the fall of American prestige.

This week, the author of that article did an interview with a New Zealand morning show. That video is shared here:

I think there is a hint of truth to much of what he says. Especially in light of how many Americans are rushing to the defense of this kid:

Episode 3 of The 905er is up

This week we talked with the organizers of Burlington’s Black Lives Matter Solidarity March back in June.

10,000 people were estimated to have attended. Making it one of the most impactful events in Halton’s recent history. We talked with the organizers about how it started, and what the plans are for the future.

Please read the post below on The905er. Like and share, and follow the page for when it launches soon. Thanks.
