023: Counting down to voting day!

Spacing Radio is back for Season Four and we’re jumping right into Toronto’s election debate!

This election has been zany, to say the least. We go to Toronto Star columnist Christopher Hume for his take on why candidates have strayed so far off topic. And leading up to voting day, reporter Daniel Guillemette is on the campaign trail looking at how the front-runners are using our public spaces.

Also in this episode, all the election talk about the so-called “war on the car” got producer Mieke Anderson thinking about the traffic lights that control our movement. And reporter Andrew Walsh rarely knows when his streetcar will be arriving and sets out to investigate the technologies designed to reduce his frustration.

And we want to hear from you! Host David Michael Lamb will be at Spacing magazine’s release party Wed. Oct. 6th asking: “What do you think is the first thing the new mayor should do on Day One in office?” We’ll be featuring your responses in an upcoming episode. (If you can’t make it out, we invite you to answer the question on the blog).
