Best Podcast: Alberta Advantage
The Alberta Advantage podcast is a hub of progressive and socialist-based views akin to the New Democratic Party. Employing a left-wing perspective, this Calgary-based political commentary podcast delves into the latest headlines and analyses Alberta politics as well as sharing our city’s progressive history. A province with previously predominantly conservative influences, this podcast is an interesting listen for anyone seeking more on the contemporary political landscape and politicians who are playing a role in forming what modern Alberta represents.
Starting in October 2017, the Alberta Advantage podcast has tapped into many young Calgarians, having mobilized them towards discussing advanced political issues relating to political ethics, economic policy, racial tensions and the environment. Featuring a collection of commentators, the Alberta Advantage has released episodes on a bi-monthly basis ever since inception. Browsing their archives, you’ll find classic episodes featuring roasts of conservative politicians like Jason Kenney, in-depth explorations of political documents like the Regina Manifesto and interviews with local historians and organization figureheads. You can visit the Alberta Advantage podcast website here for more episodes or catch a re-broadcast once a month on CJSW Radio 90.9 FM.
