Podcast: December 6, 2015

Episode #619

It’s the sad anniversary of the terrible Montreal Massacre in 1989. As much as we like to believe that mass shootings are exclusive to our southern neighbours, Canada has seen its share, including this horrific murder directed at women. Today some songs to remember those women by, as well as a bunch of sung or written by strong and inspiring women. We’ve also got a bit of a tribute to Sinead O’Connor, who has been struggling this week. We’ve also got a few great shows to look forward to, and we finally welcome the Christmas season in song!
