Listen

Happy Friday! Here's what we have in store for you today:

  • In today's opening essay, Jian salutes the "I, too, am Oxford" campaign, launched by Oxford University students to challenge stereotypes and confront prejudice on campus. [FULL STORY]

  • Live performance throughout the show from Kevin Drew, lead singer/co-founder of the influential Toronto indie-rock band Broken Social Scene and co-owner of the respected Arts & Crafts music label. He'll play songs from his new solo album, Darlings. [FULL POST]

  • British fashion model -- and Cambridge graduate -- Lily Cole on her website impossible.com, backed by Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales. It champions the "gift economy," where people freely provide knowledge and services to others without expecting anything back. [FULL POST]

  • Q's media panel -- Jonathan Kay of the National Post, Judy Rebick of rabble.ca, and John Cruickshank of the Toronto Star -- with their take on current media issues and coverage of recent news stories. [FULL POST]

  • Best of Q: we revisit Jian's chat with flmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen  -- the Coen Brothers -- about their fillmmaking and their latest production, Inside Llewyn Davis, set in the Greenwich Village folk scene of the 1960s.  [FULL POST]
