Cityblue30 ,

The best "Top Stories" news pod in Canada

It is one of the first ones that I recommend.

BellMontreal ,

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.

Yet Another Vancouver Mike ,

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.
