Shows like CBC’s This Hour Has 22 Minutes are rare as hen’s teeth. You won’t find politics, culture, and news satirized in primetime on mainstream national networks in the US. But in Canada, the beloved series has contributed to of-the-moment discourse on matters that concern Canadians. And it’s been on the job for thirty years! To celebrate that benchmark, What She Said’s Anne Brodie spoke with writer/performers Stacey McGunnigle and Aba Amuquandoh, who with Mark Critch and Trent McClellan give us our weekly dose of “Fake news before fake news was cool!”.
This Hour Has 22 Minutes Tuesdays at 8 PM/8:30 NT on CBC and CBC Gem
