With the province in the middle of civic elections, the Press Gallery podcast team takes a departure from its regular programming to zoom in on local politics. Join host Emma Graney with guests David Staples, Janet French and Paula Simons as they talk mayoral races in Edmonton and Calgary, the big issues for voters in the City of Champions, and what's happening in the race for school board trustees. Good stuff from the gallery David's pick: The Rubin Report podcast, hosted by comedian Dave Rubin. Paula's pick: This Yahoo Sports piece about why Major League baseball player Bruce Maxwell knelt during the national anthem. Emma's pick: This read on Bustle about how feminist cross stitching became a tool of the resistance. Janet's pick: Radiolab's excellent podcast episode about driverless cars.
