Our colleagues at COMMONS have a new season of their podcast called DYNASTIES, all about the powerful families that run Canada. Today, we're sharing their episode about the rise of the Fords. 
Justin Trudeau won't stop saying "Doug Ford" while Andrew Scheer is going to absurd lengths to avoid acknowledging the Ontario Premier's existence whatsoever. We take a look at how Doug is playing a role in the federal election. Get tickets here to see us live at the Hot Docs Podcast Festival. This show is supported by listeners.

While the public has loudly protested funding cuts to areas like education and autism support, cuts to arts and culture have gotten less attention. So how are the arts doing under the Ford Government? Where is this government cutting and what are they supporting? And finally... what art does Doug Ford actually like?
With a new Cabinet in place and ongoing allegations of nepotism in the Ontario government, we present to you: The Doug Ford Guide to Management.   Plus, we play everyone's favourite political patronage game, "Guess The Relation."   If you like this show, please consider supporting us on Patreon.
Tonight, we gather to honour the Doug Ford Government a year into their historic mandate. Our hosts hand out the much-coveted Douggie Awards to those who have shown tremendous achievements in spin, bootlicking and dramatically miming the hunt for beer in convenience stores. Join us for this unforgettable evening.   This episode is sponsored by Penguin Random House Canada. 
In the month since the budget was released, we've gotten a lot more details about the Ford Government’s cuts. The environment is one area that's been hit hard, with plans to murder some baby trees, make it easier to kill endangered species', and fight the carbon tax with the most powerful tool on earth: stickers.   We enter the world of commercial talk radio to see what some of Ford’s biggest cheerleaders think about this.   And we find a glimmer of hope.
The Ford Government's first budget is out. They call it "Protecting What Matters Most." We spend eight hours locked in a room with bureaucrats, reporters and cheap pizza to find out what exactly does matter most to Doug, once you put a dollar sign on it.
Plus, the one he fulfilled that blew up in his face.

Is the Ford Government trying to privatize healthcare? Plus, a list of things Doug Ford has broken.   Further reading: "The Secret Moves To Privatize Healthcare" in The Toronto Star
An old friend of the Ford family has been appointed to head the Ontario Provincial Police, a job many consider him to be under-qualified for. We look back to Doug's history with Ron Taverner, as well as the group of unofficial advisors who surrounded the Fords for years.   Plus, we introduce a new segment called... wait for it... "For the People."

podcast is boring. going back to JRE. no offence. just seems one sided which doesn't really force me to think about other perspectives.
