SUPPORT US ON PATREON

---------------------------

Ontario Loud is a political commentary podcast hosted by Chris Martin, Sam Andrey, Garima Talwar-Kapoor, Alvin Tedjo, and Alexi White. We all have experience giving policy, political, and communications advice to senior leaders in the Ontario government, including Cabinet Ministers and Premiers.

Ontario Loud is an open conversation about life under the Ford government, the implications of government decisions, and the kinds of policies we think could make things better for people in Ontario and Canada.

We have a short discussions on a (hopefully) weekly basis about issues that matter in Ontario in a way that informs, critiques and reflects on current affairs.

A bit of a mission statement for us: 

  • We’ll keep it positive… but critical: There’s no way around critiquing the Ford government, but we’ll give credit where it’s due, and talk about policy alternatives that could paint a more positive future.
  • We’ll keep it informative… but acknowledge what we don’t know: We all have policy, communications, and political experience, but we don’t know everything. That’s why we’ll seek out expert advice and cite external evidence and research to back up our discussions.
  • We’ll keep it progressive… but will try not to be too partisan: We’re all recovering Liberal staffers who have put a lot into supporting a progressive vision for Ontario. However, that doesn’t mean we check our brains at the door, ignore valid criticisms of the party, or don’t want to hear from non-Liberals on the show. 

This is also probably a good place to clarify that this is not a production of the Liberal Party, federal or provincial. 

We don’t have key messages, we haven’t run this by them.

Feel free to get in touch with us to share your thoughts and opinions on our discussions. We hope you tune in!
