Mike Quack ,

No Second Chances got me hooked!

Learned about Canada 2020 from listening to the No Second Chances podcast with host Kate Graham. Great listening!

Carbon Pricing

Kind of disappointed the host didn’t ask more in-depth questions in response to some of the information handed out by the guest. Too one sided for me.
