My car has satellite radio, and the funny thing about it is that 90% of the time it’s tuned to CBC. [I work with CBC Manitoba (news ) and CBC Radio, but I've been paying Sirius monthly for no reason for a while now].
Turns out our national public broadcaster talks about smart stuff & topics I care about. Here are my hand-selected podcasts that you should totally get.
Brilliant & MILFish Nora Young talks tech, Twitter, robots, futurism, and the practical impact of it all on your life. Bonus coolness: legit UGC!
End credits democratically include everyone who contributed to the episode, (listeners too), often via phone.

Mellifluous Terry O’Reilly talks golden age of advertising, replete with insights into classic marketing strategies.
