Tangled garden ,

Great addition to Canadian journalism.

I happened upon the recommendation in my pod-catcher. This is a serious and insightful discussion of Canadian politics on the world stage. I will certainly be putting some support behind this journalism

Beemyn ,

A much-needed progressive voice in Canada

I recently discovered The Maple and I love it! Their podcast is an excellent way to keep up with important and under-covered news in Canada. Keep up the great work.

The maple

Great context, contemporary and highly relevant issues, high quality analysis and balance without ever being caustic or polarizing.
Even when complex challenges are presented there is just enough optimism to keep one motivated towards building an even better Canada
