What’s the holdup, CBC?


CBC is supposedly updating its podcast offerings. That’s not difficult, since all they offer now is a weekly Radio 3 podcast (quite good, me digs the tunes), Quirks and Quarks (also good) and Metro Morning, which is a bit of a puzzler as its the Toronto morning show. Why CBC would think I”d have any interest in day-old news from a city i don’t live in and actively despise is anyone’s guess, but there we are.

Anyway, sign up for their newsletter and let them know you want more podcasts, more often. I want to hear The House, As it Happens, Cross Country Checkup, Ideas, and the Sunday Edition, to name but a few. CBC has a pile of great programming, DNTO not withstanding, and it’s sort of ridiculous that I can listen to any number of NPR and BBC podcasts and not my own national broadcaster’s programs.
