Show Notes

Good news everyone, the pandemic is over because the government said so! Everything is great! Of course, like all responsible adults, we know better than to let ourselves get tired of winning so much so we are punishing ourselves with another insipid Jon Kay column. This one was published in the Wall Street Journal.

In this latest instalment of Canadian pundits explaining Canadian politics poorly to an uninterested audience, Dog Shampoo Boy writes about Justin Trudeau being a "Woke Donald Trump".  It's stupid and our lives are worse for having read it.

We're joined this week by the great Mitchell Thompson of PressProgress, who has subjugated himself to reading a lot of Quillette. For those who don't know, Quillette is an awful website that pays Jon Kay to write for them. Quillette has a habit of talking about race science, and Jon has written about wokeness and frisbee golf for them.
