Glad to see an at issue podcast
At Issue is one of the highlights of the national, having it as a podcast is a great idea.
Best 10 mins you can spend for Canadian politics
Chantel and Andrew amazing compliment each other
Intro sound mix needs tweaking
Great to have in podcast form but the intro sound mix is way off. Especially if you listen with earbuds, the intro music (especially bass) is much too loud. Other than that of course Rosie, Andrew, and Chantal are all terrific week in and week out.
