Ep. 347 - The Brayden Bushby Trial And Pity Porn
It's crowdfunding month! Support us: canadaland.com/join. The Brayden Bushby trial has once again raised some uncomfortable questions about how stories involving Indigenous people get reported by settler journalists. Jesse sits down with CBC's Jody Porter, whose recent essay for Maisonneuve touches upon her experiences reporting on "Indigenous issues" and how writing about other people’s pain can be a way of hiding from your own. Additional music by Audio Network. This episode is brought to you by Dispatch Coffee and Hover. Support CANADALAND: http://canadalandshow.com/join See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
