Yahoo, another set of politicians played dress up at Calgary Stampede this week ahead of the premiers meeting in Saskatoon.

Join host Emma Graney with guests Clare Clancy, Keith Gerein and Dave Breakenridge to discuss everything pancake-related, and what Premier Jason Kenney brought to the table when premiers hung out in Calgary and later in Saskatchewan.

The team also takes a look at the latest in pre-election stumping by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and People's Party of Canada leader Maxime Bernier, and gives a rundown of what happened in the spring session.

Good Stuff from the Gallery

Clare's pick: An astounding read from HuffPost about how more young women want to become Catholic nuns.

Keith's pick: This excellent long read called Searching for Keith (no, not our Keith, but a guy who went missing off a sailing vessel).

Emma's pick: This intriguing read from BBC News about how Norway's approach to jails and criminals is reducing recidivism at an impressive rate.

Dave's pick: This story about the Bowie classic Space Oddity, about how the song became a cultural icon.
