Interesting and worth a listen

The host exposes how these groups are started and run by broken people without sensationalizing their hate

CEH_95 ,

State-funded propaganda

Not sure why people take any media funded by a state seriously. This is the Canadian Al Jazeera or the Canadian Telesur. Everyone should be highly skeptical of all political CBC work as it fundamentally exists to serve state interests — this is not unique to this podcast.

Following Safe ,

The most absurd premise I have ever heard

Yikes are we back in 1960. What a bunch of hate and propaganda trust the CBC
