This episode includes references to hair gel, 1990s hair flips, and the difference between Adar I and Adar II. We brought back the BDS Watch Watch segment to discuss reverse BDS in the US and Canada, the campaign for BDS at McGill, and recent fear mongering at York University. We return to Illinois to address yet another instance of menorah vandalism, and gave a Shkoyach to sweet potatoes. For the Interview, we spoke with activist and academic Dean Spade about Pinkwashing, the backlash that he received after the Creating Change conference, and what it means to talk about anti-Semitism from an anti-Zionist perspective.

*We recorded this episode before the BDS motion (that passed the General Assembly at McGill University) was nullified by an online ratification vote. See the McGill Daily’s “BDS Motion Nullified in Online Ratification” and the CBC’s “McGill University BDS movement vows to continue”. Organizers are currently challenging this outcome (due to widespread online campaigning by Zionist groups, in violation of university regulation) so the story is still ongoing.
