New Progressive Conservative leader Jason Kenney stirred controversy this week with his comments about Gay Straight Alliances in high schools. The Press Gallery podcast team talks about the political fallout from that, as well as the latest kerfuffle between the premiers of Alberta and Saskatchewan. Join host Emma Graney with guests Stuart Thomson, Paula Simons and Sarah O'Donnell to take a look back at those issues, and the amazing shrinking Alberta Liberal leadership race. Good Stuff from the Gallery Stuart's pick: This look over at Vox about the future of mankind and why humans won’t dominate Earth in 300 years. Paula's pick: This read from Tristin Hopper at the National Post about how the Brits who created Canada 150 years ago were bored out of their minds. Emma's pick: Another National Post big read, this time by Aaron Beswick, about cod coming back to Newfoundland. Sarah's pick: S-Town, a new podcast from the makers of Serial, about a guy who hates his Alabama town and asks a reporter to investigate the son of a wealthy family who’s allegedly been bragging that he got away with murder.
