#72 In the Pocket of Big Opera
Paul Wells joins Jesse to talk about big opera, Kevin O'Leary and #elbowgate.

Do we have to take Kevin O’Leary seriously if he runs for leadership of the Conservative Party?

What a big opera conspiracy theory reveals about arts coverage in Canada.

Author and pundit Paul Wells co-hosts.
