Ep 65: Is it a Better BC with David Moscrop

Byelection fever strikes BC as we preview Monday’s federal byelection in South Surrey-White Rock and the newly announced provincial byelection in Kelowna West.

Then we look back at John Horgan and the BC NDP’s first term in office with friend of the pod David Moscrop.

Plus our usual round of quick takes on fighter jets, housing and silly trade wars.

Patrons: There are some details about the new fee structure on Patreon’s blog. The long & short is Patreon will now be passing the credit card processing fees onto you. If you support multiple creators, you might be looking at this fee per pledge (rather than per payment you make each month). Let us know if this is an issue for you and we’ll make a fuss or find other options.

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.

Make sure to tell a friend about us.
