The Jason Kenney Cannot Say Uh-Oh Episode

In this episode, we talk about the latest on the Republican Party civil war between people who believe in religiously-affiliated space lasers and the other side. We also talk about the latest setbacks in the vaccine distribution in Canada and whether hypothetical Prime Minister O’Toole would have done anything differently. Finally, for Alberta politics, we chat about possible issues with the latest reopening plan and the latest on the coal mining re-opening in the province.

For BookReport, we discuss Leadership in Turbulent Times by Doris Kearns Goodwin (AKA DKG). This book centers mostly on Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s time in office during the second world war, with some interesting insights into Elinor Roosevelt sprinkled in for good measure.
