Terrific please crank up the volume.

I love getting this segment every week, as I am a Canadian living in the US. It is a great way to help me keep in touch with Canadian affairs.

One thing, producers, please take note. The volume of this podcast has been feeding over the past few months, compared to other podcasts I receive. Please crank up the volume.

Always a good panel

I used to listen to Rosie with the Power Panel, and this is like a miniature version of that. The discussion is always interesting and provides an efficient way to stay on top of major Canadian political issues, from across the border.
