This is one of my favourite political podcasts. Scott and Ian do a wonderful job of providing an informative, nonpartisan and often entertaining take on the latest events in the crazy world of BC politics. Thanks for all the hard work you put in gentlemen. I don't even live in BC anymore, but this is the one podcast I can't go a week without.
