Ep 63: Justin McElroy kills your nostalgia

From the federal and municipal governments we get housing plans upon housing plans, but how do they stack up? Then, we chat with Justin McElroy about how he decided to pit all Canadian TV against one another and whether Kids in the Hall or Mr Dressup will be crowned the best we can provide as a country.

Ep 61: Minister of Silly Names

Unparliamentary language is threatening our democracy in BC but thankfully Darryl Plecas is there to save us from such profanity. Plus, what does peacekeeping even mean anymore, particularly in light of Ukraine’s request that the UN intervene on their behalf against Russia. And the conversation about supply management we know you’ve been dying to hear. Finally, some quick takes which, as always, includes a not-so-quick look at the TPP and housing controversies in Vancouver.
