Episode 4 - Questions about Questions
The Alberta Legislature is back in session, and you had some questions. David sat down with two new MLAs for a candid chat about all the debate drama, what it means to be partisan and how they got into politics. (Shoutout to Bawulf!)  Plus, we dissect an exchange between Rachel Notley and Jason Kenney.

Episode 2 - Dollars and Sense
Jobs and the economy is top of mind for many Albertans, so this week we talk to Lethbridge-West MLA Shannon Phillips and NDP Finance Critic about the upcoming budget and what we’ve been hearing at Alberta’s NDP budget town halls. We also get a bit nerdy with economist Mark Anielski and delve into the UCP’s blue-ribbon panel, equalization and Alberta’s past and present fiscal picture.
