About Alberta Advantage:
The Alberta Advantage is an award-winning political commentary podcast offering news and analysis from a left-wing perspective.
Based in Calgary, Alberta, the podcast shares its birthplace with that of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (CCF) – a political coalition of progressive, socialist and labour groups formed in 1932, and predecessor to Canada’s New Democratic Party (NDP).
Motivated to share more of Calgary’s progressive history and engage with contemporary political and economic issues, the podcast’s lively group of commentators recorded and released the first episode in October 2017. The show has steadily continued on a bi-monthly basis, along the way getting picked up for re-broadcast on CJSW Radio 90.9 FM once per month, and becoming part of the Ricochet podcast network.
