A great daily update on the Canadian political scene, I prefer the press galleries and MP sessions, some of the one off guest speakers can be a little dry.
The early problems with truncated episodes and problems downloading seem to be gone. It went away for a few months and since coming back has been reliable.
Keep asking tough questions!
I often disagree with Power Play’s take on events but so long as they keep throwing pointed questions at our politicians I don’t care. Politicians need to be scrutinized to the bone regardless of the party and they should be able to answer whatever is thrown at them.

I like the show a lot but they aren’t updated everyday and sometimes they cut off half way through.
