CORRECTION (Jan.7, 2019): In this episode, reporter Graeme Gordon mistakenly states that North99 Director Taylor Scollon previously worked with Navigator Ltd, the crisis communications PR firm. In fact, it was North99 co-founder Geoff Sharpe who previously worked with Navigator. We regret the error.
