I came across this podcast searching for a quality nation-wide news source. This podcast is the best I have found at covering important issues in a way that allows the listener to better understand the issues, not just root for a particular side of the story. Each episode begins with a brief reading of headlines followed by in depth interviews. I would recommend this to anyone who wants their news to help them to better understand the various motivations and agendas behind current events.

Been listening for a while but.....

Eriel Deranger on the Negative Impact of Resource Extraction on Indigenous Communities in Canada

Podcast cover
Read more
We continue our conversation with Eriel Deranger, member of the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation and the executive director of Indigenous Climate Action. She is in Madrid, Spain, for the COP25 United Nations climate summit, where indigenous leaders are demanding action on the climate crisis, an end to resource extraction destroying their territories, and justice for missing and murdered indigenous women and girls. Deranger says these issues are often liked. “In these extraction hubs, in these high-density places where we see workers influxing in, we also see increases of sex trafficking, drug abuse, domestic violence and general abuses towards women,” says Deranger.
