#875 How to (Remotely) Blow Up a Pipeline
From Minecraft to statecraft, Jacobin’s Luke Savage joins Jonathan to chart the bizarre course of a U.S. intelligence leak with potentially explosive implications for Canada. And seemingly inspired by the Musk-fragrant “Twitter Files,” a Conservative MP went on a fishing expedition for examples of the Canadian government over-policing social media. Does turning up a single really solid instance count as a success?
