Share Dan's rant on why our media really doesn't understand "the youth vote"
In 2008 we did our first online youth election special with Myspace
featuring Jack Layton among others, tomorrow we'll be doing it on
twitter with The Young Turks Network. No matter the platform, I feel
with politics, we're all in this together no matter what your age is.
But sadly the narratives in our media about my generation continue to be
just plain out of touch and ridiculous. Though I appreciate what others
may be trying to do with "the youth vote" every four years, they're
missing the point. I once devoted an entire television series to these
issues - and though now I'm more interested in broader themes, the way
this gets covered every election keeps bringing me back to rant. Take a
listen! #elxn42 #cdnpoli

This week we take on the media elite with the Evan Solomon scandal, give you a recap of that time our parliament argued who was the least racist, rundown Justin Trudeau's chat with activists over Bill C-51 while Rona Ambrose goes full Maude Flanders.

This week we explain our recent absence due to our T.O. WebFest commitments, and why building a web content creator community is important. While we were away, Patrick Brown became the new leader of the Ontario PC. Since Dan is from Barrie, we discuss in detail Patrick Brown's win, his track record, and the chances of him appearing at Barrie's Pride Parade in June. Also, a town in Alberta has eliminated homelessness. The "how" of it will not shock you. This and more on this week's Truth Mashup Canada.

This week we're talking creator culture from YouTube to T.O. Webfest, why independent culture in Canada matters from an insider's biased perspective. And then the story everyone is talking about the NDP's orange wave strikes again - we'll give you our thoughts on the election and what it means about our system and our fall election. And finally Dan and Vince completely lose it on the Ontario parents who don't understand what year we're in. All that and more on this week's Truth Mashup Canada!

This week we discuss Joe Oliver's new shoes...and the budget that goes with it. Dan and Vince are finally interested in the Duffy trial thanks to Enbridge. And we ask the question, "we are six months out of a federal election, so is it too early to buy into polls on who is leading the race right now?" We answer this and many other questions that you probably, sorta, kinda, maybe care about. Truth Mashup Radio starts now...or whenever you click on the play button.

This week on the show we go in depth on the topics from our YouTube Channel - From Jian and the CBC, to Justin and Tom and why they just can't get along, we'll give some thoughts on the whole Canadian mess. Plus why is Kathleen Wynne doing the conservative thing? How "liberal" became just an awkward brand. Remember the Conservative "Hidden Agenda"? Well that's officially at satirical proportions, listen to the ridiculous story of why a slogan's origins will be hidden for twenty years. Then Canada's environment is being left up to the provinces, but the Harper Conservatives have no trouble boasting about the results. All that and more this week on Truth Mashup Canada.

Truth Mashup wants you to join them on Periscope! The guys went live on Periscope for a special episode of Truth Mashup to talk the Daily Show Controversy. Listen to Dan and Producer Vince give their thoughts on Trevor Noah as host, his tweets and the comedy community meltdown that followed. Is it just clickbait? Should comedians be left alone? Or is this all part of the gig in 2015? Sit back and listen to a conversation on comedy in 2015.
