Great for quick, non-partisan budget updates

I’m an MPP who doesn’t always have time to keep track of the federal budget process. This podcast has helped me stay afloat of what is going on each week, featuring the overall budget picture as well as specific aspects like an appropriation or CBO report. Great podcast!
