Let's Talk About...

Let’s Talk About is a program created by Jason Pchajek that aims to cut to the heart of stories in the news, on social media, and in discussions had in coffee shops across the country. Jason aims to strip away the rhetoric, jargon, and (when appropriate) politics surrounding an issue to give you the best explanation of what exactly everyone is talking about.

What exactly is the Carbon Tax? What does ‘gaslighting’ mean? And what the heck are eSports? These questions and many more will be answered by Jason and a rotating cast of guests, friends, and experts from various disciplines, fields, and walks of life.

So, let’s talk about something.

DISCLAIMER: All issues and topics presented during broadcasts of Let’s Talk About are complex and nuanced. As such different aspects may not be explored and certain information may be missed. The aim of this podcast is to shed light on topics and help the average listener be more informed, and while many experts will be present, we might miss something. Everything you read, see, and listen to must be taken as only a piece of the puzzle. This program is no exception.
