This week's episode is a quick look at last week's zeitgeist, highlights of the "slushpile", and an editorial from Mike Kellat, the owner of Erie Looking Productions. A related commentary released online by Ontario public broadcaster TVO from commentator Jesse Brown connected to the editorial can be found here directly as an M4V video file.
