One reply on “Modes of Inquiry with Mathew Giagnorio”

Fantastic interview!! Thank you. The Crown labelling first degree murder as an act of terrorism is a risky strategy, in my opinion. It may be better if you abandoned ‘terrorist’ and charge the perp with murder &/or attempted murder. Hopefully, you will continue to have that conversation with your guests.
