The Joe Biden is Going To Work (Homonym) Episode

In this episode, we talk about President Joe Biden’s first week in office (and ponder GameStop’s value, for good measure). For Federal Canadian politics, we assess how the vaccine roll-out is going to date here at home – and, of course, the politics of it all (spoiler alert, David’s belief in a spring election is waning). We also talk local politics this week, with the possible plebiscite on 40 KM/H speed limits in Calgary.

For BookReport, we talk about The Man Who Ran Washington: The Life and Times of James A Baker III by Peter Baker (no relation) and Susan Glasser. This book delves how one becomes (probably) the biggest political power broker of the 1980’s and how to wield and maintain that power – all without a Twitter account.
