For the past few months on Lean Out, we’ve been doing a deep-dive into the crisis in Canadian media, speaking to critics of the status quo — and asking what’s gone wrong and where we go from here. My guest on today’s program, the last episode in our summer media series, has a unique perspective on our media’s collapse.

Rudyard Griffiths is the executive director of The Hub, and the co-founder and chair of the Munk Debates.
