    After becoming premier of Ontario in 1943, and starting a political dynasty that would last 42 years in the province, George Drew turned his eye to federal politics in 1948. 

    While he would not have as much success there, without him, John Diefenbaker would have never been prime minister.

    An Update and Call for Input

    After being knocked out by my second dose of the COVID vaccine for two days, my podcast schedule got a bit messed up.

    Using this as an opportunity to reorganize and ensure that the content I make is top quality. 

    That is where you come in. I want your input on how to make the show better.

    Regular episodes return next week.
