Albertans, listen up!

Such a great podcast with phenomenal guests in all areas of government. I love how much knowledge and history Dave and Adam pull from to provide context for the day’s most contentious topics. A must listen.

Excellent local podcast for Alberta

It's wonderful to have a podcast that focuses exclusively on Alberta politics. They also do a great job of using an objective tone and not overting favoring any political party or idea. This is long-form journalism with thoughtful guests who have time to write out considered opinions. Thanks for this!
