#BCPOLI Hotstove: Hearts, minds, and arms

Staying kind, calm, and safe - even when it's really hard.

Maclean and Jordan talk about the anti-vax demonstrations (and how to win hearts and minds of the unvaxxed), the federal election, Erin O'Toole's gun flip-flop, Gavin Dew brew crew news, and more.


  • Feel like some more podcasting? The numbers say you do! For your listening pleasure:
    • Last week's #BCPOLI Hotstove dove deep into the morass that is the 2021 federal election.
    • It's not always on the main page, but just to give you a taste, Bob Price's Orca Business Beat at is free every morning on the Fin, which is also, you guessed it, free.
    • UnSpun with Jody Vance and George Affleck is now 137 amazing episodes deep. Best start bingeing now.
    • CHEK TV's Political Capital is a breezy 22 (or so) minutes of the week in politics, with Rob Shaw, Maclean Kay, Katy Merrifield, and Jillian Oliver.
    • Justin P. Goodrich's A Second Look is a more substantial, thoughtful look back at recent issues, how they were discussed at the time, and how we think about them now in hindsight.
    • Sarah Elder-Chamanara's Ellected is The Orca's newest show, all about women in politics, by women in politics, and for...well, everyone.
