What on Earth is Going on? is a podcast for the curious, where small talk is banned and tangents are prized. Strap yourself in for genuine dialogues with people who think deeply and are ready to tackle the big questions, such as broadcaster Terry O'Reilly, economist Miles Corak and journalist Jessica Vomiero.

Join Ben Charland to peel back the headlines and ask, what are the forces, people and ideas that shape the human story today? Have things always been this nuts, or are they getting crazier by the day? From the Mafia to the Beaverton, from women in politics to women in leadership, from history to artificial intelligence, and from entrepreneurship in the digital age to the art of wheelchair fencing, just what on Earth is going on?

Should the artifacts of history be owned by any country, or should they be shared as common human heritage? If ancient Greek and Roman civilizations remain in many ways the backbone of our culture, society and laws, who gets to interpret them? And what about those with an entirely different lineage, especially indigenous peoples? Who are Classics for and to whom do they belong?

Featuring:

Fabio Colivicchi, Professor
Raphaelle Walsh-Beauchamp, Student
Desmond Wong, Alumnus
Ben Charland, Moderator

This panel discussion and Q&A was recorded with a live audience at the Department of Classics, Queen's University, on 21 March 2019.
