Getting better

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.

Discouraged with Host ,

Uninformed

The host seems to be biased and at times totally uninformed.

Spa stuff ,

Fix pls

Love the show, as previous comments there is an issue with cutting off half way, pls fix
