Go live with Maclean’s
In this new virtual series, Maclean’s editor Paul Wells hosts candid conversations with politicians, artists and more about their jobs, Canadian governance and hot button issues.
In the latest edition of Maclean’s Live, an extraordinary group of writers – Esi Edugyan, Robyn Maynard, Syrus Marcus Ware and Ian Williams – sat down with guest host Desmond Cole or a conversation about systemic racism and the Black Lives Matter movement. Desmond is the author of The Skin We’re In: A Year of Black Resistance and Power.

With the start of the pandemic, Maclean’s pivoted its in-person conversation series, usually held at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa, to virtual. Maclean’s senior writer Paul Wells goes live every week via Zoom and recordings are available following the event. Here are two more of the recent weeks’ conversations.
