Bob Rae wants to start a new political conversation among Canadians.
To do that, he’s launched “Political Stripes”, a new weekly podcast.
Bob brings a unique perspective based on his decades of experience in federal and provincial politics. This experience gives him the ability to see past the usual punditry and talking points. Bob interviews key individuals on the Canadian and international political scene, probing for behind-the-scenes details and the stories we haven’t heard.
