Fun and informative

I feel like I’m enjoying a few easy pints on Whyte with a couple of political science guys. All done through thoughtful analysis, humour and without any anger or bitterness. So refreshing!

Always an informative and worthwhile listen

Two great personalities anchor a show that provide answers to questions about Alberta politics. They provide a diet of knowledgeable quests across the spectrum of politics and social justice.

Totally 1-Sided

I love AB Politics and I was really hoping this would become one of my regulars. Unfortunately, after listening to 8 straight episodes to try and get a good sample size, I’m definitely dropping it. If you’re looking for a balanced Podcast like “West Of Centre”, don’t look here. If you want a 1-Sided Podcast that gives ZERO credit to The UCP no matter what they do, then this is the Podcast for you. Dave fully admitted on another interview that his real job is with UNA, so his view on things is from the Left and gives no credit where credit is due. That’s completely fine if you’re ok listening to only 1 side of the issues, but if it’s a balanced perspective you’re looking for, don’t even bother wasting your time with this. You won’t find balance here.
