Toxic Testimonies: A Podcast
Mentor: Dr. Ahalya Satkunaratnam
What do you picture when you think of the Amazon rainforest? It’s probably not pits filled with toxic waste and crude oil. But’s that’s where this podcast begins. We hear about Chevron’s toxic contamination in Ecuador, and about the legal case that threatened to bring down one of the world’s most powerful corporations. This case came to Canadian courts in 2014. I examine the Canadian court’s surprising decision, and what I learned by looking closer at the stories that uphold our nation and courts as just.
