Historian Afua Cooper is on the show this week to talk about racism, slavery and Lord Dalhousie, the university’s namesake. She’s the James R. Johnston Chair in Black Canadian Studies at Dal. She has a few things to say about the statues coming down. Plus, Tim and Terra discuss the latest rally at the Cornwallis statue, the Bloomfield property and the Chronicle Herald.

  1. I always look forward to the podcast, particularly enjoy The Week in Review segment. But lately feel that something is wrong. Hard to put my finger on it, but think it is that Tim and Terra do not sound comfortable talking to each other. I recognize that this is not like a daily radio show where the hosts have worked together for a long time. But there is a sort of jarring effect to this portion. The interviews as always are interesting.

    1. Hi Linda. I guess you can tell we don’t know each other well! Maybe Tim and I need to do some of those trust exercises — or go out for beer. I’m glad you like the interviews. If you have any suggestions for guests, please send them along!
