    How do you heal and get through a break up? Annie Lord is Vogue's dating columnist. She joins Emma Barnett to talk about her debut book, Notes on Heartbreak. A candid exploration of the best and worst of love, she talks about nursing a broken heart and her own attempts to move on in the current dating climate; from disastrous rebound sex to sending ill-advised nudes, stalking your ex's new girlfriend and the sharp indignity of being ghosted. The overturning by the US Supreme Court of the landmark Roe v Wade ruling has prompted many of you to get in touch to share your reactions and experiences. One listener, Nicola, wanted to tell us about her mum - who died after having a legal termination that should have been safe, in 1968. Closer to home there's been a high-level summit about buffer zones at abortion clinics. Emma speaks to Scotland's Green MSP, Gillian Mackay, who has drawn up a members bill which aims to introduce protest-free buffer zones around clinics. And what does the law in the UK say about a woman's right to an abortion? We hear from Professor Fiona De Londras, the Chair of Global Legal Studies at Birmingham Law School. The senior backbench Conservative MP Sir Iain Duncan Smith and some of his fellow MPs were given the opportunity this week to find out first hand exactly how uncomfortable a menopausal hot flush can be, especially when you're in the workplace. As part of an event raising awareness around the country's shortage of HRT, Sir Iain and some his colleagues from both sides of the House of Commons, tried out a so-called MenoVest, a special piece of clothing fitted with heat pads, to simulate the extreme discomfort which many menopausal women have to live with. Emma speaks to Sir Iain Duncan Smith and Lesley Salem, who had the idea to create the vest. The Fellowship is a play which looks at the children of the Windrush generation and the relationship between Marcia and Dawn, two black sisters struggling to take care of their dying mother whilst juggling their turbulent personal lives. Emma speaks to Director Paulette Randall and actor Suzette Llewellyn, who plays Marcia.

    This week on Open Sources Guelph, we consider change. Out of Toronto there was a report about policing that proved the worst case scenario, but will those numbers make a distance? Also, might this be the last session of the Canadian government led by the current prime minister? Some people think it's possible. In the back half? We will work through some change of our own by talking to some local Indigenous voices. This Thursday, June 23, at 5 pm, Scotty Hertz and Adam A. Donaldson will discuss: Police Story. Last week, the Toronto Police Service released a report into racial discrimination in law enforcement, and to no one's surprise, especially the Black community of Toronto, racialized people are more like to get the harsher end of law enforcement whether that's guns drawn, use of force, and strip searches once in custody. So are the police now finally going to address systemic racism in their ranks? Tru-done? The latest session of the House of Commons is scheduled to come to an end this week, and not a moment too soon because a lot of pundits are saying that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is checked out, disengaged, and other non-superlatives. Unfortunately, inflation and a new scandal involving the RCMP have captured the media and the opposition's attention, so is this summer going to be Trudeau's big goodbye? Live, Sort of, From the Park. Tuesday was National Indigenous People's Day across Canada, but the Guelph festivities were in Riverside Park, the first in-person event for this occasion in two years. In lieu of a guest this week, we will play some of the audio from the event along with interviews with an Inuit artist, an Ojibwe drummer and drum maker, and the local president of the Métis Nation of Ontario. Open Sources is live on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca at 5 pm on Thursday.

We will spend time with the strangeness of these stories, attending to the faith embedded in them. We will let the text draw us into a cosmic account of creation, the epic beginning rooted in the stories of the ancient Near East and artfully reshaped to tell the good news: Creator calls the world into being and out of love binds Godself to it. Old Testament scholar Walter Brueggemann believes that the first eleven chapters of Genesis are among the most important in the bible, but they are also among the most misunderstood. So, come back with us to the origins with your big questions.

    May 2022 marked the 25th anniversary of the election of Tony Blair's first Labour government. It entered office with an ambitious set of manifesto proposals for constitutional reform. These included devolution in Scotland, Wales and London, a new settlement for Northern Ireland, the Human Rights Act, Freedom of Information Act, Lords reform, regulation of elections and referendums, and a referendum on the voting system for the House of Commons. Not all of these ambitions were reached, but further changes occurred beyond 2001, most obviously the establishment of the Supreme Court. This event will look back at the Labour reforms, asking what they sought to achieve, the extent to which those objectives were realised, whether in retrospect mistakes can be identified, and what has been the lasting legacy of these reforms. We are joined by a senior panel who were closely involved from different perspectives.Speakers:Lord (Charlie) Falconer of Thoroton is a Labour peer, who has held various frontbench positions including as Secretary of State for Constitutional Affairs and Lord Chancellor 2003-07Baroness (Shami) Chakrabarti is a Labour peer and former Shadow Attorney General, who before this was Director of Liberty 2003-16Professor Robert Hazell was founding Director of the Constitution Unit, a position he held from 1995 to 2015.Chair: Professor Meg Russell, Director of the Constitution Unit

    Born in Fort St. John, B.C, and raised on the family farm near Taylor in the B.C Peace River country, Jay Hill developed a strong work ethic at a young age. After graduating from high school, Jay held numerous positions in the oil and gas sector, both in exploration and production in northern BC. ​ In 1975, Jay returned to his roots and became a partner on the family farm with his father and brother. Off season he subsidized his farm income by continuing to work in the oil patch. ​ Jay honed his leadership skills as he served as President of the B.C. Grain Producers Association, Director with the B.C. Federation of Agriculture, a Director of Soil Conservation Canada, and Chair of the B.C. Provincial Seed Fair. ​ This experience led Jay to a career in federal politics where for 17 years and through 6 general elections, he was known by most as a dedicated, respected, and fair statesman – a rarity in the world of Canadian politics. ​ Later Jay played a key role in Canada's political landscape. As the party evolved from the Reform Party of Canada, to the Canadian Alliance and finally the Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) Jay presided over the caucus transition, building morale and unity. Jay always served in senior roles, as Whip and House Leader, both in Opposition and in Government. ​ After being named to Cabinet in 2007, Prime Minister Harper appointed Jay to several roles that further developed his leadership skills. These included all-party and committee negotiations, Treasury Board fund approval, strategic and regulatory review of government departments, managing the House of Commons legislative program, and providing guidance and mentoring to new and would-be politicians. When Jay retired from full time politics in 2010, he established a government relations consulting practice to provide strategic counsel and guidance to CEO's and senior executives in the energy and telecom sectors. ​ Jay recently wrapped up his consulting practice but continues to help his brother on the family farm with planting and harvest. Jay also remains active and engaged in Canadian politics. *************************************************** Follow the Cross Border Interview Podcast: Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/crossborderpodcast/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/CrossBorderPod Facebook : https://www.facebook.com/CrossBorderInterviews Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCI2i25ZVKTO84oUsLyO4jig Website: https://www.crossborderinterviews.ca/ Back the Show: https://www.patreon.com/CrossBoderInterviewPodcast The Cross Border Interview Podcast was Produced and Edited by Miranda, Brown & Associates Inc © 2022

    Welcome to TIWIK- Things I Wish I'd Known, Season 5! More deep conversations to inspire you to create positive change in your life.  *Trigger warning alcoholism & mental health As one of the UK's most influential mental health advocates, he regularly speaks on BBC, ITV & Channel 5 news. Josh has also spoken in the House of Commons, contributed to mental health policy and even advised the scriptwriting team on Hollyoaks. He has run resilience workshops for village schools and global brands alike. Additionally, he is an ambassador for Nacoa – a national charity supporting people affected by a parent's drinking.   Some key points from the interview: How Josh did not even realise that he had navigated a difficult life hiding behind self-created but unhelpful narratives. How avoidance is not the key - "Taking yourself out of yourself to stop you being yourself!" How we create dysfunctional behaviours to avoid feeling what we feel. Paradoxically, how alcohol was not the (original) problem and saved his life when he was 12. A new, functional definition of "true growth" Being comfortable with being uncomfortable. A true definition of freedom, that does not restrict people and allows people to be who they are in the context of their lives. How there is no "one" right answer. Many keys for many doors! How our beliefs need a little editing.

    The age-old issue of misogyny in the world of Westminster has continued to rock British politics this year.  From an MP's resignation after watching porn at work to a sexist article which suggested deputy labour leader Angela Rayner used a “Basic Instinct ploy” to distract the prime minister in the commons, the Houses of Parliament is suffering from its own internal crisis.  There have been a myriad of sexual misconduct claims, three MPs have recently lost the whip for sexual harassment, bullying and sexual assault respectively. And another has been accused of rape.   So why is misogyny in 2022 still plaguing parliament? And after a series of sexism scandals is it time, like many have suggested, that HR arrived in the House of Commons? Today, we will speak to the women inside Westminster - high-profile politicians from both sides of the political spectrum and a renowned female journalist - who can give us an insight to where it's all gone wrong and whether this is time for a radical change in the culture of British politics.  Sources: STV, Sky News, ITV news Producer: Rachel Evans

    The House of Commons is going to become a 'menopause-friendly' employer. Speaker of the Commons, Sir Lindsay Hoyle said after he signed a Menopause Workplace Pledge yesterday, that he hopes to "break the taboo" around the menopause. Practical adjustments could be included in Westminster, such as well-ventilated rooms and fans, flexible working and breathable uniforms. But will a pledge in Parliament have any impact of the lives of women across the UK? Journalist and author of Cracking The Menopause, Mariella Frostrup and academic and author Dr Lara Owen join Emma to talk about changing the culture around menopause. The Australian actor Rebel Wilson has revealed she is in a relationship with a woman. Last Friday, she shared a picture with her new partner on Instagram saying she she had found her "Disney princess". But it was revealed the following day, the Sydney Morning Herald wrote they'd known about the relationship before it was public. Their celebrity reporter said he had given Wilson 1.5 days to provide comment for a story. That report sparked widespread criticism on social media, with LGBTQ+ campaigners saying it was unacceptable to put pressure on people to come out. The paper has since removed that gossip column and offered an apology. Emma is joined by the journalist and feminist campaigner Julie Bindel to discuss. Lea Ypi, professor of Political Theory at the London School of Economics, has written a prize-winning memoir, Free: Coming of Age at the End of History. Lea grew up in Albania and for the first eleven years of her life, it was one of the most isolated countries in the world, Europe's last Stalinist outpost. Then, in December 1990, the regime collapsed. Lea joins Emma to talk about her extraordinary coming-of-age story. A new report funded by the Home Office suggests that sexual abuse of a child by their brother or sister – sibling sexual abuse – may be the most common form of sexual abuse within the family. Many experts say it is not given enough attention and resources need to be set aside to support families dealing with this. Emma speaks to reporter Livvy Haydock and Stephen Barry, who is the Lead Clinician at 'Be Safe' Bristol, part of the Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health partnership NHS Trust.

    "Genesis is a book about origins: the origins of humankind, the origins of Israel, and the origins of the unique relationship between God and a particular people." —Nahum Sarna. We will listen to the memory of ancient Israel wrapped in poetic narratives. We will spend time with the strangeness of these stories, attending to the faith embedded in them. We will let the text draw us into a cosmic account of creation, the epic beginning rooted in the stories of the ancient Near East and artfully reshaped to tell the good news: Creator calls the world into being and out of love binds Godself to it. Old Testament scholar Walter Brueggemann believes that the first eleven chapters of Genesis are among the most important in the bible, but they are also among the most misunderstood. So, come back with us to the origins with your big questions. Bring your daily experience of the glory and darkness of human nature. Let's wander together into the stories of falling and faithfulness. And let's listen well.★ Support this podcast ★

    For those who have been paying attention to Canadian politics for the past 3-4 decades, Jean Charest will be a familiar figure. Charest was first elected to the House of Commons in 1984, he lead the Progressive Conservative Party from 1993-1998, he also served as the 29th premier of Quebec... as a Liberal. After a 10-year political hiatus, Charest is running for leadership of the Conservative Party of Canada. His past affiliations, and some of his policies, have been touted by his rivals as proof that he's a Liberal in disguise. His chances at winning may hinge on his ability to convince party members otherwise.  So what is Jean Charest's pitch? How do his politics stack up to the likely frontrunner, Pierre Poilievre? And does he actually stand a chance?  GUEST: Catherine Cullen, Senior Reporter on Parliament Hill for CBC News.
