Episode 54

Episode 54:

Tune in for a very medical episode of DIU Podcast (or at least as medical as a show with two unqualified millennials can get)!

In the past week, a viral video depicting a white woman demanding a white doctor to treat her son has surfaced. The video, from Mississauga, Ontario, has resulted in tremendous backlash against the mother. Gavin tries to examine how situations such as this can be a reflection of racism (or reverse-racism) in Canada. Specifically, Gavin explores the idea of whether the personal preference of a patient can be called racism. Meanwhile, Jack brings in new research claiming that one in two Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their life. Gavin suggests that the statistics are being manipulated for fear-mongering.

Afterwards, the Love Guru gives us some tips regarding the appropriate questions to ask someone when you’re trying to get to know them better.
