Sounds very promising
Happy to see Rob 2016 NFBC Main Event Champion and millionaire friend of the Prime Minister Silver back from his self-imposed punditry exile.
Cannot wait to hear more from Prof. Robson.
Good start to a promising show
Just listened to the first full episode. Personable co-hosts providing insightful and entertaining conversation that will equally satisfy the Ottawa bubble insiders and people simply interested in the subject matter.
Good first episode!
Although I can't believe you had Andrew Leach on and didn't ask him about Big Lentil!
