The Rice Supplanting Rice Episode

In this episode, we go through our fantasy (incoming) US government cabinet picks (President-Elect Biden, take note)! We also talk about COVID from both a federal and a provincial perspective.

For BookReport, we talk about the Gatekeepers by Chris Whipple – a book chronicling the role of the Chief of Staff in the US Presidency.
