When The Shit Hits The Fan

When The Shit Hits The Fan

Sally Housser is back! YAY! But sadly Kevin is away this week. *sad emoji* But in his place, and making a return appearance on the pod, is friend of The SKoop and Associate Principal at Navigator, Jim Billington. This week the trio take listeners inside the backrooms of crisis communications in politics, including WHO is in the room when the shit hits the fan, WHAT is being said, and HOW to advise a premier or leader when things go sideways. Then they discuss the future of public service, and whether the latest/next generation of politicians won't stay in public quite as long as ones in the past. They also discuss the political calculations and reasons for subsidizing WestJet's new route from Saskatoon to Minneapolis, and give everyone their thoughts on What Actually Mattered This Week. Thanks for listening!
