When you sit a Canadian, a Brit, and two Americans at the same table, certain questions are bound to come up. How will Brexit affect the UK in 20 years? What can US lawmakers learn from the British and Canadian healthcare systems? And why are foreigners so darn good at American accents? Ed and Rachelle chat with actor Neil Dickson and writer / filmmaker Charles Dennis about these issues in our political climate, and the iPad filmmaking technique with the lowest production carbon footprint.
LESSONS FROM CHARLES & NEIL:
Don’t wait for an opportunity. If you have an iPad, you can do anything.
There’s no perfect political system. But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t fight for a better one.
