The Alberta legislature broke a record for the longest Wednesday sitting in provincial history this week, and Press Gallery host Emma Graney was there watching... for some of it, anyway.

Join Graney and guests Clare Clancy, Janet French and Sarah O'Donnell to discuss why on earth Alberta MLAs were in the house for a full 24 hours.

The team also dives into changes around the Education Act and what the report on missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls means for Alberta.

Good Stuff from the Gallery

Clare's pick: Season 4 of the awesome podcast series called Ear Hustle, which is recorded in prison.

Janet's pick: This fascinating piece from The Star on something called atmospheric rivers, and how they're changing .

Emma's pick: This book by former Obama advisor Dan Pfeiffer called Yes we (still) can, about journalism and social media in the age of Trump.

Sarah's pick: This series on sexual violence and policing in remote Alaska, called Lawless. It's a partnership between ProPublica and Anchorage Daily News.
