Well Informed Pundit Banter

Robby, Deidre, Mark and guests break down the politics of Alberta and Canada for your examination.

Maclean and Smith are marvellous.

Never miss an episode. Political punditry with an honesty and humanity most podcasts do not accomplish. Highly recommended!

Wonderfully informative

I look forward to every episode! As an Albertan who wants to have a better understanding of politics and woman’s role in that, this show has been so educational! I also love how they talk about so many governed issues that effect women in the workplace, furthering education, childcare, etc. They hit the nail on the head!
