Safe Space Podcast Live!



Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema Thu, May 23, 2019 8:30 PM


Safe Space is a smart and hilarious podcast that looks at the news and does a double take. Each week, it breaks down the big stories, studies the major issues and has fun in the most delightfully trivial way. After wowing audiences at last year's Hot Docs Podcast Festival, Safe Space closes its latest season with a special live show that will tackle the big questions, the dumb questions and everything in between. Is Donald Trump good for feminism? Does pie have any redeeming qualities? Should you stop talking to that one friend that always posts your worst pictures? Hosted by writer Vicky Mochama, this will be a night of topical conversation and spicy hot takes featuring Toronto's most compelling journalists, activists, comedians and more.

The live finale will tackle the topic of climate change with special guests:

Matthew Green, former Hamilton City Councillor and NDP candidate in the upcoming federal election
Dianne Saxe, Ontario's former environment commissioner
Ishmael Daro, Digital Editor for Democracy Now!
• Sarah Hagi, freelance writer (GQ, The New Yorker, Vice)
• Jane Lytvynenko, Reporter, BuzzFeed
• Anne T. Donahue, pop culture writer and author of Nobody Cares

Promotional Partner: Canadian Association of Black Journalists
