Part 1: Health News In The Age Of Goop

There are count­less reporters cov­er­ing pol­i­tics in this coun­try, but only one per­son has spent their career report­ing on and ana­lyz­ing health care.

Pol­i­tics may dom­i­nate the news cycle, but every Cana­di­an is touched by our health care sys­tem. But while there are count­less reporters cov­er­ing pol­i­tics in this coun­try, only one per­son has spent their career report­ing on and ana­lyz­ing health care. André Picard talks about health hor­ror sto­ries, scan­dals, and what it’s like cov­er­ing health in the age of GOOP.

Part 2: That’s What You Get When You Draw A Polit­i­cal Car­toon That Doesn’t Suck

A Cana­di­an car­toon­ist drew a provoca­tive image of Trump, blithe­ly igno­rant of the fatal con­se­quences of his bor­der pol­i­cy. After it blew up online, the car­toon­ist was let go from the com­pa­ny who’d pub­lished his work for 17 years.
