Listen to "Fake Victory: Election 2019 Analysis From Coast to Coast" on Spreaker. A star-studded cavalcade of comrades and commentators from across the country join host Andre Goulet for an Election 2019 postmortem including activist Hugh Stewart (Dog Island) in Halifax, political science scholar Maike Sondarjee (Le Placher des Vaches) in Quebec City, academic Christo Aivalis (Youtube's Left Politics, History and Culture) in Kingston, organizer Kate Jacobson (The Alberta Advantage) in Medicine Hat and Ricochet editor and co-founder Derrick O'Keefe in Vancouver.

On this week's episode of the newest addition to The Ricochet Podcast Network, Edmonton-based The Progress Report explains why the $30 million war room, a $2.5 million public inquiry and untold amounts of hate and fear whipped up by Jason Kenney are all based on a lie.

Climate activists have not sabotaged Alberta’s economy or landlocked Alberta’s oil - in fact Alberta barely rates as a blip on the worldwide global climate activism stage. And it took Sandy Garossino to debunk it. On this episode of The Progress Report, she joins host Duncan Kinney to discuss her National Observer story and the #elxn43 results.

Election season has come to a merciful end as author Martin Lukacs (The Trudeau Formula: Seduction and Betrayal in an Age of Discontent) joins host Rob Rousseau to break down Canada's new electoral map on episode 63 of 49th Parahell.

On this week's episode of Victoria's Out of Left Field podcast, the gang host the masterminds behind the /r/canadaleft subreddit to discuss the state of Canadian politics online discourse.

On a new episode of his Left Politics, History and Culture Youtube show Kingston-based academic, pundit and activist Christo Aivails explains why, although this week's 2019 Canadian Federal Election result for Jagmeet Singh and the NDP were not quite what he'd hoped for, it is crucial for Jagmeet Singh to stay on as NDP leader.
