Hazing is an ugly ritual that permeated junior hockey for years, but those responsible are now facing a reckoning. We discuss why the toxic culture behind hazing is a PR disaster for a sport that is already considered violent.
Ewan goes into the US Supreme Court decision last week that defines the word "sex". We look at the ruling, the dissent, and what it means for employers and employees.
Then it's back into COVID-19, which is continuing to infect people in many parts of the United States as economies open. We talk about what the rising numbers could mean for both the global economy and the stock market. Then we have a brief discussion over 2019 Best Picture winner Parasite and Jon Stewart's searing interview in New York Times magazine.
