Co-host Sheila Heti removed her name from a letter that caused turmoil in the CanLit community. The letter, signed by 88 prominent authors, asked UBC to review the firing of author Steven Galloway, who has been accused of sexual assault – though it’s not clear if that’s why he was fired.

Consultations on the future of the CBC are wrapping up. If you want an #AdfreeCBC or have any other input, you can visit this website to have your say until Friday, November 25th.

Sheila’s website is sheilaheti.net


After this podcast was recorded, Steven Galloway released a statement, which you can read about in the Globe and Mail.

Following that, the woman accusing Galloway of sexual assault also issued a statement.
