Loved it. Great guests, very thoughtful discussion.
First episode thoughts
The example given where people are asked to draw the quintessential Albertans: this is likely an artifact of branding. I am concerned that this wasn’t even discussed other than one of the guests bringing up the Alberta mythology (good point). Specifically the person who spoke of the “study” should feel responsible to discuss the limitations of such a “study.”
