S+S Podcast: Minimum Wage, Canadian Values & Lobsters Down Your Pants

The new Stephen + Steven podcast is now available on Soundcloud and iTunes.

This week we talk about a $15 minimum wage, reminisce about our own first jobs (Steven's involved painting fish and mine had me chasing a man with a lobster down his pants), and discuss what 'Canadian values' mean.

If that doesn't pique your interest, I don't know what will.

Radio Appearance on "The View Up Here"

I was delighted to be asked back (for a 5th time) to @CanadianGlen's "The View Up Here" to talk about the future of the political Right in Canada and the US. Has the Right in both countries selectively bred the moderates out of their conservative parties leaving only the extremists and nuts?

Can they get back to the centre or are they now captive of the Alt-Right and its media machine of the Breitbarts, Alex Jones, Hannity and Fox News? Is Trump the fever that will finally break the Republicans from their Tea Party delirium? How long will the ghost of Harper and the Reform party keep Canadian Conservatives in the wilderness?
