SHEENA ROSSITER: Welcome to The Deep Dive From The Walrus, a weekly podcast that goes deeper into everything we’re working on in our newsroom. You’ll hear from everyone from writers, to Talkers, to illustrators, to editors, to our own readers and listeners. It’s a podcast that takes a deeper dive into the stories that matter most to Canadians. We’ll hear about everything….from how these stories came together….

CONNOR GARREL: This essay’s really interesting because there are images of Whitney Housten, Madonna, and U2, and all of these artists who anyone who listened to music in the ’80s certainly cares a lot about.

SHEENA ROSSITER: Get a behind the scenes look at some of the issues these stories talk about….

JS RUTGERS: Housing is an issue that is facing all Canadians. It’s an issue that has become increasingly important and to me represents sort of a nexus of justice issues.

SHEENA ROSSITER: And hear the latest ideas from The Walrus Talks….

LEE THOMAS: I frame mental illness very much as a social construct just as much as anything else (which is not always a super popular opinion) but that’s really influenced by what we value as a society.

SHEENA ROSSITER: Subscribe now to The Deep Dive from The Walrus wherever you get your podcasts. And look out for our first episode in January 2022.

Dear Readers,

For years, experts have raised the alarm about political polarization. It’s been said the left and right can’t talk to each other. Blame the political climate. Blame the rise of tech platforms and social media algorithms. But we don’t talk enough about the difference in the quality of the information that we receive and share.

As more and more media outlets die and as parts of Canada become “news deserts,” there are two types of citizens emerging: those with access to high-quality, fact-based journalism, like the kind you’ll find in The Walrus, and those without it.

One thing all reliable media outlets have in common: it takes time and adequate funding to produce good journalism.

If you like reading The Walrus, we ask that you consider becoming a monthly supporter. Your donation helps us keep The Walrus’s fact-checked online journalism free to all.
