Customer Reviews


The previous review compares this show to mean the chris matthews show? wow-- it is absolutely nothing like that--far superior. It is nothing like any american television, except perhaps the new Bill Moyers program on "Public" TV [which is no longer really public, but largely coopted by corporate sponsors]. Some of our public radio is good, [Speaking of Faith by Krista Tippet for instance] but not widely distributed. Now you can get the podcast. You are lucky to have this kind of quality program in Canada. It might not hold everyone's goes into great depth on a given subject, and the subjects are interesting but not "glamorous". It takes a developed attention span. However there are those of us starved for this kind of thoughtful program since we are bombarded with such superficial stuff 95% of the time. For that audience it is great.

Very thought-provoking and informative program

I really love this show. I love listening to stories - ordinary people who show extraordinary power in difficult situations.

Insightful, intelligent, thought-provoking

One of the best radio shows in existence finally is available on podcast. Eaqch Ideas episode explores a question or topic from many different perspectives, usually interviewing major figures in the relevant fields. If (like the other reviewers) I had to compare to other podcasts, it's very similar in style and in subject matter, to WNYC's RadioLab. Ideas was a weekday evening highlight when I lived in Canada. Having some of the best shows available on podcast is like having that really intelligent, thoughtful, funny friend who you dearly miss since they moved away a few years ago, move back to town, and finding them even more enjoyable company than before!!
