The Hamilton Today Podcast with guest host Scott Radley

It is Friday, the last day we are getting Raddled with Radley on Hamilton Today, Scott Thompson returns on Monday. Scott sends off this week with some nostalgia: It’s been… 14 years since Speaker’s Corner, an iconic staple of City TV, was shuttered, but now it is getting a revival of sorts. But does it work in 2022, when we all have Speaker’s Corner boxes in our pockets, and a myriad of apps to pour our time and energy into? Elissa Freeman discusses the modern-day implications with Scott. A McMaster grad won Survivor just last night, which is appropriate since McMaster offers a course all about Survivor. Scott takes a deeper dive on that one. Continuing Canada’s light-on-crime streak, a historic decision from the Supreme Court of Canada will affect sentences for the most serious crimes across the country: the gunman who killed six people in a Quebec City mosque cannot wait more than 25 years before being eligible for parole. Scott speaks with Toronto lawyer Ari Goldkind about that debacle. Dr. Timothy Sly speaks about the new threat: monkeypox. Monkeypox continues to creep into the headlines and creep us out, as we hear words like “physical distancing” and “handwashing” again… It is all coming up on the Hamilton Today Podcast.
