The Beaverton
Andray and Desmond talk about giving teeth to political satire with Luke Gordon Field, editor-in-chief of The Beaverton.

Satire in Canada often involves wacky characters and funny accents. The Beaverton tends to cut more deeply, whether they’re talking about refugees, terrorism or Parliament.

Andray and Desmond chat with The Beaverton’s editor-in-chief Luke Gordon Field about the state of Canadian political humour and the fine line you have to tread when making jokes about horrific issues.
