This is a great political podcast!
David Herle is at his best on this new podcast. Excited for his first full length episode.
Informed, topical and easy to listen to. Looking forward to more.
Herle's a loser
The last thing Canada needs is a podcast hosted by someone who lost to Stephen Harper. Herle is a fake progressive and you only have to Google his name to see his shady dealings.
