It's a double dose of the Just The Election podcast!
Did you think Adrian would let that awful Conservative ad fly by and not talk about? Hah...you thought!
Adrian breaks down the Willy Wonka-inspired ad from the Conservatives, how everyone from political pundits to armchair political strategist on Twitter have reacted, and compares it to the ad the Liberals released in response.
He also highlights how even some candidates from the Conservative party are trying to distance themselves from CPC HQ after the ad.
He then provides a couple examples of a few ads that were able to walk that line of being critical yet respectful of their targets, and one infamous ad that decided to hop, skip, and jump over that line.
