Louis T. seduced the internet’s french-speaking community with his unique and humorous take on current events. In collaboration with URBANIA, Louis T. now proposes a series of 20, 5-to-7 minute episodes on a weekly basis, in which he combs through the news and tackles today’s political, economic, environmental, and social issues with a healthy dose of laughter. Each week, a new social issue is examined through Louis T.’s original lens: freedom of expression, globalization, cultural appropriation, cyber bullying, access to justice, pharmaceutical companies and the intellectual quotient.
A humorous and entertaining approach is used to tackle issues that can often seem off-putting or complex to an audience of millennials. One goal: to present an original point of view that deconstructs pre-conceived notions with the help of statistics, comparatives, and impactful journalistic archives.
Vérités et conséquences avec Louis T is produced by URBANIA, and broadcast on ICI Tou.tv and urbania.ca.
