This is one of the most interesting shows on CBC radio that I used to listen to. I'm very glad to see that the CBC has added some more shows to their podcast list. A very interesting and highly recommended podcast to listen to.
Michael Enright is informative and interesting. I love this program. It deals with a great diversity of topics, from high culture (jazz, art, classical music) to current events and politics.
One of the best podcasts I have listened to. Quality information, important and very interesting topics, great journalism and critical thinking. Loved the episode on food from China.
