  • Informative and Entertaining

    I don’t know how these guys put out content so prolifically. Either they don’t have day jobs or don’t have personal lives. But their overachieving is to the listener’s benefit - each and every episode is worth a listen, even the ones about Alberta politics for those of us who don’t live in Alberta

  • Filtered to the top of my podcasts

    I know that it’s going to be a good day when a new episode drops. Nothing makes me laugh out loud like this group. Brought me back to an interest in politics when I thought nothing would drag me back.

    No need to work in government or politics to enjoy the show. Opening the curtain behind the scenes on political communications, decisions and strategies- makes you feel like an insider in a super nerdy club.
