The Gambling Big at the Grey Eagle Casino Episode

In this week’s episode, it is our triumphant return to American politics, where we discuss the off-year election results, Biden’s low approval ratings and what it all means for the mid-term elections – and the Presidency in 2024. We also return to our first love (?) of provincial politics, with Jason Kenney under fire from over a quarter of his constituency associations amid the impending jamboree/AGM at the Grey Eagle Casino.

For DocReport this week, Mike read (with his ears) the Peter Mansbridge memoir entitled ‘Off the Record’, in which he recounts his childhood and a bunch of old man anecdotes (some of which involve politics).
