    A reporter was offered money to kill this story.

    Ep. 281 - Trolling Jonathan Torrens

    Jonathan Torrens talks about the CBC, what really happened on Trailer Park Boys, and about that one song you love to hate.

    From hosting his own show on the CBC to playing J-Roc on Trailer Park Boys, Jonathan Torrens has been a mainstay of the Canadian entertainment industry for decades. So what’s his deal? Is he a comedian? A talk show host? Or is he just that guy who wrote a truly terrible song called “Thank U Canada”.

Frank, direct And refreshing news

Great podcast countering the fluffy mainstream news with the straight goods on what is affecting English Canada.

please include referenced studies in show notes!

Over all good to get an alternative perspective, as current mainstream media tends to be quite uniform. As with all media however, it is still important to critically listen, as facts are sometimes cherry picked and then strengthened with emotion and outrage. On that note: where can we find the studies you referente in your episodes and say you will link to? Eg. the UBC study referenced in Shortcuts #282. Thank you!

I’m so over your WE Charity obsession

I’m unsubscribing. This is getting old. Kinda like the Conservative Party you seem a lot obsessed and clinging. I don’t make that comment because you are partisan but instead pathetic.
