Canada Reads "The Best Laid Plans"
Both the book and the format of the podcast are excellent and I've enjoyed both!
Canada Reads: The Best Laid Plans
I found the first eleven podcasts to be intelligent, knowledgeable and humorous.
I am now downloading the rest which I expect will continue to provide excellent entertainment.
Terry Fallis deserved to win the Canada Reads honours. Great book, Terry!
