Trudeau Two: Electric Boogaloo

This podcast is a refreshing take on Canadian politics with just the right amount of time spent on Justin Trudeau’s facial hair. The recent Pandemic Pals series was a lovely balance of hope and despair.

Go off!!

Within 3 minutes of my first listen I knew this show was for me. Keep telling it real.

Biased

Unabashedly misrepresents ideas right of centre as far-right, racist, xenophobic etc. Making those problems seem more mainstream than the fringe that they really are. Ironically stirring more division while pointing the finger of causing division.
