    great election autopsy fantastic duo! just been listening to this, Red Life Podcast’s election reflections and autopsy as well as Socialist Action Canada, El Jones on the Breach, the Breach highlights which included Ms. Loreto’s take, and all brilliant and agreed with nearly everything expressed here especially the sometimes excessive devotion, at times ill fated devotion much of to the left in Canada has towards the NDP (i’m entirely opposed to the counterproductive/counterrevolutionary act of tactical voting though) , and not entirely an advocate of abandoning the NDP like other friends and comrades have but I like much of the sentiment expressed by Ms. Loreto. great talk, keep up the great work fantastic duo, and look forward to the next episode and curious what Ms.Hudson thought of El Jones’s reflection on the Canadian election, her thoughts on the ignoring of Black Canadian affairs was always enlightening, mind blowing (in a positive way) and she as always dropped a lot of truth bombs and mythbusting gas on that and other topics on the Breach.

    At the beginning of this episode, Sandy Hudson tells Nora Loreto about a podcast on NPR, Invisibilia.

    > The episodes that I listened to were about an anti-news news website in Stockton, California. How news has shifted and changed.

    The Invisibilia episode is entitled, [The Chaos Machine: An Endless Hole](https://hyp.is/RGBRhixkEeyb0Z_OiD5dTQ/www.npr.org/programs/invisibilia/992214107/the-chaos-machine-an-endless-hole).

    I ended up following this rabbit hole all the way to [The View from Somewhere](https://hyp.is/eKIOHCxfEeylktv2_QVT4g/www.lewispants.com/) podcast episode featuring a discussion of [Hallin’s spheres](https://hyp.is/8rhRbixhEeyPMM-0k1HdNA/podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-view-from-nowhere/id1481617425?i=1000453580806). Truly fascinating!
