Love you program

I love your daily review of major topics. Keep up the great work.

Be careful not free ,

Seriously

CBC had a viewership of less than 5% of the market not to mention a mouthpiece for the PMO and you think it should be revamped rather than defunded? You indicate that some Canadians feel this way. What facts are you basing this opinion on? I did not recall you citing any data to support this during your show.

Good info but boring speakers

Appreciate the info, although it sometimes seems mostly like opinions and not actual news. I do agree with the hosts on the majority of their opinions though. I have to say the hosts have the most monotone, boring voices I’ve ever heard. I’d like to continue listening but it’s honestly depressing. Give me some emotion and entertainment along with the news articles!
