I've been listening to As It Happens on my local NPR affiliate for years, and now, thanks to podcasts, I've been able to discover more good stuff from the CBC, including DNTO. Like the subject line says, this is a really fun show that tackles pop culture without ever taking itself too seriously. Sook-Yin Lee is an excellent host - she's not always a great interviewer, but she more than makes up for any shortcomings with her enthusiasm and charisma. I wish we could get the full show, but this best-of podcast will have to do.
I thoroughly enjoy this show and I'm not even Candadian.
I thoroughly enjoy this show, and I'm not even Canadian. A friend recommended it. It has that quirky, subtle Canadian sense of humor that gets me laughing out loud. I wait for it to come out every week so I can download it.
