166 - not impressed

As a Canadian I was not impressed with this episode. Your Canada hacking really concerns me. You may think that our health care system is free; it definitely is not! Canadians pay very high federal and provincial income taxes, and generally lower business taxes. The unwritten agreement is that those who can, work. We contribute and pay nearly 50% of our salary in tax in order to support children, seniors, and those who can’t work. Sounds like you can contribute: please take the opportunity to put more in, especially while you can, rather than taking the attitude that the benefits are there for the taking and you can game our system.

Authentic!

This is the real thing. The hosts want you to succeed in life in whatever way you choose, and they are committed to bringing you a wide array of information to help you accomplish those goals. No sponsored content except some key partnerships with (likely) useful services that are always disclosed. Excellent guests too -- I've listened to every single episode and I wouldn't trade my time back for anything else.
