Thanks to eagle-eared Rick Cameron for pointing out that a panelist gave me a plug in a Newstalk 1010 “Round Table with John Moore” radio discussion about the Spadina-Fort York riding in the current Canadian federal election. I thought that surely Rick must be mistaken. But there is it, at 3:07: “I’d like to see Josh Rachlis, who’s running for the Green Party, do a little better.” Thanks to panelists Kate Wheeler and Christine Bentley for that! (Last year I did some fun appearances as the male perspective on their radio show What She Said. I should go back on there, am I right?) Sadly, I was running to run for the Green Party in Spadina-Fort York and didn’t get chosen as the candidate. But I’m still planning to do something this election. I can’t waste an endorsement on Canada’s largest talk radio station!
