    ENCORE: Podcasts outside the norm with 'Everything is Alive' host Ian Chillag

    ENCORE: Podcasts outside the norm with 'Everything is Alive' host Ian Chillag

    Have you ever stopped to think about what a balloon, a bar of soap, a subway seat, or a can of cola would have to say? On this podcast, they each have a voice and they're ready to spill their truths.

    From PRX and Radiotopia, Everything is Alive is an unscripted interview series in which each guest is an inanimate object. No two items' experiences are the same as they each have a life story and their own unique perspective on the world at large. With company like this, it's no wonder the show won the 2019 Webby Award for Best Interview/Talk Show.

    This week, we're sharing one of our fave episodes from last spring. Joining us is Ian Chillag – producer, writer and host of Everything Is Alive. As our guest curator, he brings us his favourite outside-the-box podcasts.

    "There's a flavour that is McDonald's, and I feel like that sometimes when I'm listening to podcasts. There's a flavour that is 'podcasts' ."
    - Ian Chillag

Love this pod!!

I love the different stories. For some reason, I find the summer edition to be less interesting.

Great for finding other podcasts

Just really great for finding the more uncommon or less "top of the charts" podcasts. Only thing I wish is they focused a little more on obscure podcasts, and because it's CBC maybe they could focus more on indie Canadian podcasts. There is a lot to choose from!
