Great Platform for Comedy but

I listen on my way to work and sometimes, just sometimes I find myself laughing so hard at the brilliance of comics.

Tom Papa’s set at the Winnipeg Comedy Festival was a case in point. But then he joked that Gandhi wore a diaper. Really, dude? I stopped laughing. CBC should have a disclaimer that his material may be offensive to over 1.3 billion people.

Good, but many under qualified guest interviews

Overall, I love this podcast. I do wish though that they would cut out the less qualified guests. The episode on opening a restaurant was definitely a low. I’m not saying I don’t like interviews, just stick to the more relevant and qualified guests.
