“It’s the polarization that terrifies me. It’s the idea that democrats and republicans can’t do anything together in the United States anymore. This is a really vivid and highly intimate look into what polarization can do to human beings and to due process.”

Host Sarah Turnbull chats with National Post reporter Marie-Danielle Smith and author, political commentator, and Ottawa’s Toronto Star bureau chief Susan Delacourt about: U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his accuser Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee, whether Canada’s current Governor General Julie Payette is cut out for the role, and how journalists should cover polarizing figures like Toronto City mayoral candidate Faith Goldy.
