love cbc ,

Been listening for years and years!

Great variety, great stories, great background info, great analysis. I listen to a lot of podcasts, this is my first review. So grateful for the consistency and loyalty to the listeners.

Good Listening

I really enjoy Mr. Graham’s podcast. He curates the collection with passion and enthusiasm. It is one of my favourites.

Great shows... but ease up on the negative commentary

Love, love, love the stories but can you ease up on the negative commentary? The 8-10 minutes at the end where the host dissects the story and poke holes in everything...ruins it for me. Why can’t it we just enjoy the story?
