Helpful perspectives

Really appreciate these perspectives on Canada’s current affairs! Thank you for striving for a model of constructive disagreement in such a polarized political climate.

Poor repeat of CBC

Waste of time. Noting new. Same as MSM. Leftist views trying to be clever in a different format. Not recommend.

It has recently lost the crazy fun part of the podcast, and seems like the hosts are not on the “same brain wave” if that makes sense
