THE BOYS and PENNYWORTH

Cal and MD talk about Amazon Prime's insane TV show THE BOYS. Cal reviews the DC Comics TV Series PENNYWORTH. Cal tells the story of SIR NICHOLAS WINTON who saved children during the Second World War, snatching them out from under the noses of the Nazis. We talk Canadian politics, JAGMEET SINGH and his video addressing Quebec's Bill C21, and our homegrown lefty/righty parties.
