Episode details

In this final episode of The Writ Podcast for 2021, I’m joined by Philippe J. Fournier of to put our powers of prediction to the test!

The game is simple: we set a number for an upcoming political event and then have to decide whether we think the result will be over or under that number.

For example, the share of the vote the Ontario Progressive Conservatives will get in the June provincial election: 35.4%. Will the party get more or less than Tim Hudak’s score from 2011? Will the Coalition Avenir Québec win more or less than 93.5 seats in the election in October?

Join in on the contest with your predictions in the comments section. But you’ll have to be patient — we’ll only know the winner at the end of 2022!
