It's a cartoonishly hilarious look at how our country does business. A sleepy MP tells his side of the story, we help newly resigned Ottawa staffers with legal representation and Robocalls run amok.
Slide whistle!
Do we use technology for good, or evil?
Find out as you listen in on some disturbing "Robocalls", hear a movie trailer about faulty Canadian submarines, and follow a recently fired, Twitter happy Parliament Hill staffer to a job interview.

Do not trust the metal ones.
We fear change.

Environment Canada firing scientists, Canadian and American trading disputes grow to Shakespearean proportions and Canadians might not be as accurate as they should be in a recent survey.

Some of our favorite sketches from the year that was. Plus, a brand new favorite on Parliamentary insults.
