Customer Reviews


The name says it all. 'Ideas' is among the most thought-provoking, beautifully-written and -produced radio shows in North America. Its breadth of subject matter and social/political perspective is impressive; it never fails to lure me, within moments, to care about topics which would otherwise have left me cold. (Who knew salt could be interesting?) Given the show's consistently high standard, 'The Best of Ideas' should prove to be a particularly rich collection of podcasts. Highly recommended (and long anticipated). Yes!

Expand your mind

This is the sort of program that podcasting was made for. The topics are free ranging and invariably thought provoking and interesting. My only complaint is that they don’t podcast more episodes for those of us who can’t always tune in to CBC Radio One.

Take thought-provoking Ideas for a ride

For those of us who love to listen to Ideas but aren't always around the radio at 9:00 PM, here's a way to stretch our brains at our convenience. Whatever the topic, you'll come away with a broader perspective and something to mull over until the next broadcast. A real treat for those of us bored to tears with shallow topic treatments.
