#86 Yaaasss Trudeau (Owl Sex)
BuzzFeed's Ishmael Daro joins Jesse to talk about Justin's trip to the UN and the latest owl sex controversy in the magazine world.
September 22, 2016

Justin goes to New York, where the love fest continues.

It’s another troubled week at The Walrus, from the owl sex controversy to sources challenging a story.

BuzzFeed’s Ishmael Daro co-hosts.

Ishmael’s twitter: 

CORRECTION: Jesse says that Andrea Bennett was blocked on Twitter by the Walrus’s deputy editor Carmine Starnino. She was not (another source, Erin Flegg, says she was blocked by Starnino). Bennett was blocked by Kerry Gold, who is the author of the piece discussed. We regret the error.
