1.4 Protest and Print

Andrea Hasenbank joins us to talk about pamphlet culture radical movements throughout the 1930s, and traces a pretty compelling trajectory from Canadian leftist parties and organizations, through the Second World War and the building of the social welfare state and into our present (more dire) times. She reminds us how hard we have to fight for an equitable and democratic society, and how capitalism and austerity operate to undo and erase that work.

1.3 Norman Bethune

Kevin Levangie joins host Kaarina Mikalson to talk about Doctor Norman Bethune, a Canadian doctor who ran a blood transfusion service in Spain. Kevin tells us about Bethune's background, his radical politics, his art, and his work in Spain and China.
