  • Love listening to these guys

    Great humour, good debates. Like inside baseball. Addictive

  • Sometimes interesting, sometimes grating

    At its best this show is an excellent and entertaining analysis of politics in Canada. Other times it’s 3 guys who use the podcast as a soapbox and still think that “lol straight white men” is a clever punchline. Not something I take offense to, as I’m 1/3 of those things so no accusations of fragility please

  • The Halifax Explosion was an inside job

    Before you commit to this podcast, ask yourself: is this really something I want to hitch my wagon to?

    AND. The next person to say “particular” loses a testicle.

  • Odd Tone

    3 young guys in Canada that have a western Canadian tinge to their accent and vocabulary yet don’t support Pierre Poilievre. Kind of schizophrenic to listen to.
