Love this podcast because of its relevance to Canadian politics packaged in a format that is easy to digest:) My only request is that you ask for feedback through channels other than twitter for those of us that don’t tweet.

Really enjoy the podcast - you are both very knowledgeable and engaging. And the pro Liverpool bias makes it all even better!!

I’m glad it’s back, focusing on The Canadian political landscape. It fills the niche perfectly. Rosemary and Elamin are great together.

Informative and entertaining - fills a much-needed gap for concise, impactful discussions on Canadian politics. Really love the energy between Rosemary and Elamin!

Should be called, “Liberal Party PR” as Rosemary Barton is clearly a Liberal Party member.
Randy Bobanski via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/01/20
This is entertaining, but the bias of the hosts to support the LIberal Party of Canada in all situations is becoming evident.
DustinStretch via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 02/27/20
I really WANT to like this podcast. I keep coming back to it because it has so much promise. One thing really distracts and turns me off: Rosemary Barton awkwardly laughs way too much about things that aren’t funny. I find it alienating as a listener. I don’t know why she does it, and I get if...Read full review »

I am legitimately astonished by how blatant Rosemary Barton is about her support for the Liberal Party. At least Elamin (the reason I tuned in) keeps it factual and interesting. But literally *every single sentence* out of Barton's mouth is a LPC talking point.Read full review »

Pretty good but they don’t share enough of the insider-ish perspective I was hoping for when I subscribed. It seems like I hear too much of their personal feelings on the news. Also, every week they ask for submissions from people on a topic but don’t share what people submitted to them. They...Read full review »

The CBC has abandoned all attempts to be neutral with this latest offering . Very left , disappointed in our national broadcaster which is funded by All Canadians ..

Enjoyed this podcast during the election. Happy to see it relaunched.
Rstoney1616 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 02/02/20
Great news ! Looking forward to it

I am thrilled to see a Season 2! I think this is one of the most informational yet highly entertaining Canadian podcasts I’ve happened upon related to politics - not dry at all! I look forward to Thursdays as a result!

Thanks for a great podcast! You kept me engaged and current, loved it 👍
ErsMay via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/24/19
So glad you’re continuing past the election. Thoughtful analysis that is honest while also managing not to feel too heavy. I look forward to Thursday mornings and getting caught up on national politics.

Honestly how can you talk about the electoral reform debate as if the opposition parties didn’t completely sewer the process? Cons wanted no change and NDP wanted pie-in-the-sky changes. If the Libs had made changes despite the opposition, they’d have been smeared as undemocratic.
Gurr8 83 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 10/17/19
I love this podcast! The banter between Rosemary and Elamin is gold and I’m always left wanting to hear more. They’ve touched on all the important issues I’ve been thinking about during this election and I’m almost sad the election season is nearly finished because Thursdays have been the...Read full review »

And informative. Some of the negative reviews mention a liberal bias. I don't find it so much of a liberal bias as a good sense commentary on policies. There is plenty of critical commentary to go around.Read full review »

Very left leaning, would be nice if it was more balanced in presenting information about the election and the different candidates. It seems like it’s basically funded by the liberal party.
lv987 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 10/13/19
Thanks for helping cultivate conversation around this upcoming federal election, I have loved listening to the podcast! I have my fingers crossed that maybe you guys will continue on after the election, and help keep Canadian’s engaged in the conversation!!!!
steph halligan via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 10/11/19
This podcast helps to make sense of the political campaign. I’m really enjoying listening to Rosie and Elamin, they are very engaging and I love how excited they are about politics.
ferosa88 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 10/08/19
Hosts are very impressed - erroneously - with their comedic talents. “We are children”, one exclaimed on a recent episode full of giddy commentary. I agree and promptly unsubscribed.
Merlin's M via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 09/30/19
I love this podcast—it makes everything complicated understandable while keeping current on the day-to-day events of the campaign. I love Elamin Abdelmahmoud’s perspective and humor!
Alcanadanow via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/29/19
If you’re looking for balance, look else where. If you identify with the left, you’ll find this will adequately confirm your beliefs.
Blowmycow via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 09/22/19
The most bland and unoriginal commentary. Gives you the mainstream opinion without adding anything new to the narrative, apart from being extremely biased to the left. This podcast is a waste of our taxpayer money.
Rudyyammine132 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 09/20/19
“Party Lines” couldn’t even condemn racist photos of Trudeau. They were obviously shaken by the fact that their favorite politician is a racist.
Montreal2003 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 09/19/19
As a person of colour, I wish that Mr. Abdelmahmoud would stop thinking that he can speak for all persons of colour. He does not speak for me.
JorgeFromMontreal via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 09/19/19
With most new podcasts it often takes several episodes for the show to get into a groove, but Party Lines has found its groove right off the bat. This can be attributed to the hosts clever and insightful commentary. Coupled with catchy music and the discussion of interesting and important topics,...Read full review »

Meh
Ok but not very balanced, CBC production so taxpayers are paying this pair plus production, also explains the left to far left bias. Go plant trees, best use of production money and time rather than this drivel paid by taxpayers. CBC please quit with these podcasts. It is wasteful to produce tons...Read full review »

I’m trying to learn more about Canadian politics before the elections and this is amazing
nyvonne722daisy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/15/19
wow i guess rosemary barton votes liberal cuz she certainly toes the party line here i know elhamin is somewhat left because i follow his work but at least he's not like shilling for jagmeet singh directly or whatever it rly seems like you guys need to have an editorial meetingRead full review »

Need, I say more? Great work!!!! Love Rosie
ChrisFarleyCanada via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 09/13/19
I don’t mind hosts having their own perspectives, but some balance would be a positive. Rosemary articulates a Liberal Party perspective, and Elamin is clearly left on the political spectrum. There is no right wing representation. I found the partisanship consensus becomes obvious as they dive...Read full review »

I am still not sure what to think of this podcast. The hosts are engaging, however I am still trying to determine if the content is balanced enough for me. Seems like Trudeau gets a lot of passes, unlike the other leaders...would be interesting for an analysis to be done. Appreciated the shout...Read full review »

Informative, not even a little bit dull & the hosts are great! Worth a listen!
Sseeton via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 09/12/19
Tuned in because I’m a Rosie fan but after getting acquainted with Elhamin on the first episode am now super excited about this. Seems like a great team. Truly hoping the show will bring real balance. I don’t find Rosie to be biased towards Liberals as others have suggested but if that’s the...Read full review »

So enjoyed and appreciated it this podcast. As a Canadian who is about to be voting in her first election since coming back from overseas for many years, I’m thinking this podcast will help inform my vote. My one bone to pick- why the liberals are playing up Scheer’s social conservatism? They are...Read full review »
morgs72 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 09/08/19
I highly recommend this podcast. Loved the non partisan insights and humour. Rosie is such a rockstar and brings so much experience to the show. Hopefully it's a long election so we get as many episodes as possible :)Read full review »

What this Canuck living in the UK was looking for to keep connected to politics at home.
my_mushroomcut via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/08/19
Promises to be my go-to podcast on the Canadian election. Insightful and fun.
skn417 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 09/07/19
I enjoyed this Interesting discussion, but Rosemary’s laugh is cringeworthy.
BC PJ via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 09/06/19
Very informative and interesting. Keep up the great work!!
