Since 2016, Montreal-based Unpacking the News has featured in-depth interviews from a Left perspective with activists, journalists, comedians and academics in conversation with host Andre Goulet.....that's me :)  Throughout a run of more than 125 episodes, the intent of the show has been to amplify independent voices of the Canadian Left from coast to coast to coast.  Support from listeners like you is critical as the show continues into it's fourth year!

Unpacking the News
 is researched, recorded and produced on a 100% volunteer basis. By supporting the project, you're helping me out with research, editing and production and more and you'll hear the results with every new episode.  It's time intensive work, around 10 hours a week.  I really love the process of putting out new episodes, so anything you can contribute really helps to keep the show on the air.

I'm also the producer of the Vancouver-based Left literary review Well Reds, the Indigenous storytelling series Fil Rouge (Winner of 'Best Francophone Podcast' at the 2018 Paris Podcast Awards), the 2019 election analysis podcast Le Plancher des Vaches and the (also unpaid, also volunteer!) National Coordinator for the Ricochet Podcast Network (featuring 49th Parahell, The Alberta Advantage, Out of Left Field, Les Ficelles, Kino Lefter,The Progress Report, Left Behind and Oats for Breakfast)

It's been really fun and rewarding to be a part of the new Left Canadian media insurgency over the last several years and I'm excited for what's to come in the future.
Support for this show helps me continue my work coordinating and facilitating a cross-country Left podcast community, so thanks for throwing me a few dollars!
