The Press Gallery: Inside Alberta politics


Jan 12, 2018

The Press Gallery podcast is back for another year of weekly Alberta politics analysis, reflection and rumours.  This week, join host Emma Graney with guests Dave Breakenridge, Paula Simons and Clare Clancy to take a look at the new entrants in the Alberta Party leadership race — including former Edmonton mayor Stephen Mandel — and how that contest is going.  The team also goes over recent social media gaffes (it might be a new year, but they just keep happening) and makes some predictions for what Alberta politics might see in 2018.  Good Stuff from the Gallery Dave's pick: This piece on Longreads on why 1994 movie The Paper is the most essential and overlooked film about journalism.  Paula's pick: Elise Stolte's excellent ongoing investigation into harassment at Edmonton city hall.  Emma's pick: This fantastic BBC Magazine read about the tattooist of Auschwitz, and his secret love.  Clare's pick:  This New York Times multimedia story by John Branch, called Deliverance From 27,000 Feet, about retrieving bodies from Mount Everest.
