This needs to come back!

I was heartbroken to find out that the pollcast was ending, as it was always my favourite CBC podcast and one of my favourites overall. This was always so informative and interesting, with thought-provoking discussion and amazing hosting on Eric’s part.

Bring back the Pollcast!

I can’t believe it! Eric just announced the Pollcast is no more? Why? I look forward to listening to the Pollcast all the time! If this was a decision by the CBC, they need to do an about-face and reinstate the Pollcast!

ditch wherry

aaron wherry is a LPC operative who is wildly overused by the CBC

get him off your panel. this person hasn't had an original thought in his life. he wakes up in the morning and gets the Liberal Party newsletter talking points and parrots them. he's an unthinking automaton.
