The How the Trump Trial is Kind of Like OJ’s Episode

In this episode, we talk about the latest on the (second) impeachment trial of Donald Trump – including, as mentioned in the title – the similarities with the OJ trial in the 90s. We also have a double-dose of provincial politics with the Newfoundland election in COVID times and also as fierce of a debate as you’ll hear over the just-announced ‘Kenney-bucks’ for critical workers.

For MovieReport, we discuss the documentary The Champions by acclaimed director, Donald Brittain. In this doc, Brittain examines the life and times of both Pierre Elliot Trudeau and Rene Levesque – from birth until 1986. This film covers a lot of ground, including the rise of the Parti Quebecois (PQ), the 1980 referendum and the repatriation of the constitution. Thrilling!
