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.

AHHHHRRRRGGGGHHHHH ,

Oh god where is Justin Ling

This podcast used to be my all time fave. Now it is the most banal audio ever made spliced with ironic hipster beats. Fml.

Poor repeat of CBC

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