Canadian icon Ed the Sock is back and he’s shifted the target of his frank, honest humour to politics! “There’s too much important going on in the world to be talking about Kanye West & KPop. Mindless hordes have taken over political discourse and we’re taking it back.” The ‘we’ is longtime compatriot-turned-Youtube influencer Liana K and a handpicked roster of hosts and panelists - smart, bold, insightful and humourous. Small business owners, single moms, aspiring journalists, college students, Youtubers, a bar bouncer, a banker - a diverse group of people with a diverse range of life experiences. Camaraderie not enmity. Six series covering politics from every angle, including the unexpected. And all adhering to Ed the Sock’s first rule of FU_Politics: No pundits, No proxies, No jargon. Political talk that talks like us. At FU_Politics we talk with you, not at you. Plus, you’re going to laugh. Because laughter is a sign you still have your sanity.

If you find yourself screaming at the News this might be for you.

In Canada, we often don't get many options in terms of opinions, viewpoints, and sometimes even facts. Adding on top of this is how easy it is for us to digest news and stories from south of the border as they dominate our own media, and social channels.

What I like about this Podcast, (regarless if I agree with Ed's views or not) is the lack of spin, or dumbing down of how stories or issues play out in the real world. As a PoC it is hard enough to get a voice or POV on the stories and issues that affect us, at least with Ed's show I can hear a voice who is as fed up with the status quo as many others are.

No need for racism

Really disappointed how Steven has resorted to using racist insults towards Jagmeet Singh. It’s really not a good look, I cannot support someone who insults someone based on their race.

Trudeau sycophant.

Do you want to listen to an unfunny puppet from the 90s worship at the feet of his God Trudeau? Then you’ll like this podcast. If you want to listen to literally anything else, there is nothing for you here.
