Top notch

This is the best source of Canadian media, that I feel, gives you more than just a 2 minute soundbite of today’s news. Steve Paiken and Nam Kiwanuka are great at remaining neutral and professional, but also are not afraid to ask tough questions.

Paiken rocks.

My absolute favourite podcast. Makes me look forward to my commute (err....kind of).

Fantastic (most of the time :D )

Really love how Paikin challenges the guest, and I love that this show is greatly educating and informative on important issues most canadians (or at least Ontario dwellers) should be aware of politically/environmentally/socially, etc.
Thanks for your service!
