Zod & Shapiro are Neil Waytowich (@WaytowichNeil) and Ari Shapiro (@ari_shapiro) They've finally combined forces to address the chronic and existential imbalance of societal lies, government misinformation and political hypocrisy that's permeated our world endlessly. We welcome our shared glorious followers, recent admirers, and fellow soothsayers interested in our philosophical musings on life, the universe and everything. This episode is our Canadian Federal Leaders Debate special which is bound to be as thrilling and worthwhile as Superman III, a film that had Richard Pryor in it and also predicted drone technological warfare and artificial intelligence. -- This show's quotes and segments: 1:07 - Moderator Shachi Kurl tries to get to the bottom of why Prime Minister Trudeau decided to inexplicably call an early election during the fourth wave of a global pandemic. 10:01 - Prime Minister Justin Trudeau attempts to defend his over-stated climate policy using under-stated grade school analogies similar to that of your common neighbourhood bully. 15:42 - Trudeau calls out conservative opposition leader Erin O'Toole for wanting to honour indigenous people by raising all the flags across the country back to full-mast and watches him glare back with a "pot calling the kettle black" kind of look. 19:51 - CPC leader Erin O'Toole brings forth a succinctly reinforced financial plan that's meant to stave off the pandemic with a groundbreaking recovery strategy that balances the budget, caps support spending acts like it's 1998. 25:20 - Green Party leader Annamie Paul calls out Trudeau's feminist hypocrisy and ill-timed penchant for firing strong, powerful women armed who write perfectly timed political literature. 30:11 - NDP leader Jagmeet Singh, who's known for his illusionary targets and utopian ideals, skewers the leader of Canada for his illusionary targets and utopian ideals. 36:20 - Bloc Quebecois leader Yves-Francois Blanchet alerts his opponents that without increasing resources (transfer payments) and a higher yield of subsidized Canadian living (more transfer payments), mums and dads will suffer a most ignominious pandemic fate. And he's not wrong.
