The best "Top Stories" news pod in Canada
It is one of the first ones that I recommend.
Every 7 Days.
I either listen to this live or catch parts I missed with the podcast. The news quiz is the funnest part, I always smile and have a great mental work out. The topics are fascinating and just enough for in-depth but multiple topics. And they are different from other things on CBC.
Best wrap of the week
This is the podcast to listen to if you only have time to listen to one newscast a week. Topics covered are very diverse and dense.
