Posted September 5, 2018 — Jason Wallwork discusses his election campaign for a council seat in Otonabee Ward. He talks about where he stands on the major issues which will come before the next council and his vision for the future of Peterborough
Pints & Politics is three things:
- A discussion-based radio program all about politics from Peterborough, Canada, about 130 kms. northeast of Toronto. You can also live stream the program from the Trent Radio site.
- An archive of Peterborough-focused podcasts. Our current podcast is at the top of this page.
- Pints & Politics is also an informal gathering of local pundits at the Garnet Pub on Hunter Street near Aylmer in downtown Peterborough every Thursday at 5:00 p.m. The format is entirely unstructured beyond the sharing of names. We talk about whatever people want to talk about. As we meet in a public space, everything is on the record. Curious? Join us. You don’t have to drink beer. Listening skills are helpful but seldom required. Good ranting skills are essential.
Please note: As of September 25th, you can tune us in on your FM dial every Tuesday evening from 9:00 to 10:00 EDT in the Peterborough area at Trent Radio, 92.7 FM. Our new schedule starts on September 25. Next week, our show will be broadcast on Wednesday, September 19 at 7:00 p.m.
This Week: Tune us in at 7:00 Wednesday evening (the 19th) for our panel with Tim Etherington and Donald Fraser, plus guest panelist Sean Conway. We will be talking about the latest news from Doug Ford’s government, plus an analysis of the municipal election campaign in Peterborough.
On the radio show and in these podcasts, we explore political culture, ideas, trends, issues, electoral politics (municipal, provincial and federal), and the practice of politics in traditional and social media, all from a Canadian perspective. While our programs are Peterborough-focused, we also tackle provincial, national and international issues. We discuss articles, news stories, media comments and the latest buzz. We talk with guests from a wide range of backgrounds and affiliations.
While we don’t shy away from taking a stand, we strive to present a diversity of opinion. As there is a municipal election campaign on right now in Peterborough (election day October 22), we are required to be non-partisan in our coverage. All candidates have been offered an opportunity to be subjects of these podcasts.
We post on Twitter (@billtemp) and on the Cooperate Peterborough Facebook page. These podcasts are also available on iTunes.
