Correction (May 8, 2021): Contrary to what is said in this episode, a Toronto Star article promoting Dave’s Hot Chicken does include a disclosure that proprietor Blair Bitove is the niece of TorStar co-owner Jordan Bitove. 

Clarification (May 8, 2021): Capital Daily regularly includes paid advertising from 3rd parties. While it’s true that Jesse had never seen these ads, a more thorough review of past newsletters would have revealed them.
