Listen to "Election of a Thousand Laughs" on Spreaker. Feel the excitement of a 2019 Federal Election well-underway as journalist Martin Forgues, political analyst Ludvic Moquin-Beaudry and politics scholar Maika Sondarjee (co-hosts of Ricochet’s new election podcast Le Plancher des Vaches) join Andre Goulet to consider the week in review. Hear the panel lament ill-fated tarmac omens, analyze the kind of shout-y Maclean’s debate and agonize over Andrew Scheer’s terrible new campaign song.

Plus: a brutal first week for the Greens, Bill 21 and the Quebec vote and the provocative potential of Jagmeet Singh’s secret swagger. All this and more on episode 101 of Unpacking the News....

On episode 59 of 49th Parahell, host Rob Rousseau provides a passionate defence of our embattled PM and his unique brand of Radical Empathy.

Then, journalist Davide Mastracci joins the show to talk about Ezra Levant's Globe & Mail op-ed and how the media class obsession with vague journalistic ideals is ruining journalism. Listen to "Le plancher des vaches - pilote" on Spreaker. Le Plancher des Vaches is an election podcast that aims to explore the dead angles of traditional media electoral coverage with vivid analysis from journalist Martin Forgues, political analyst Ludvic Moquin-Beaudry and politics scholar Maïka Sondarjee.

New episodes are recorded every Sunday at the Ricochet office in Montreal. Tune in every week as Martin, Ludvic and Maïka continue the conversation in English with André Goulet on Unpacking the News.

On a new episode of his popular Youtube series Left Politics, History and Culture, Kingston-based academic Christo Aivalis reflects on NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh powerful and eloquent reaction to this week's revelations regarding Justin Trudeau's racist blackface history.
