Thanks for return to full podcasts

So happy to finally be able to listen to one of my (and Canada’s, I’m sure!) favourite radio shows once again in its entirety via podcast! How I had missed Shelagh’s intriguing and intelligent guests over the past year(?) as I could never find the full episodes on CBC’s listening app no matter how many times I tried.

The Next Chapter

I have been listening to this podcast for years, and it is such a treat when I come across it on the radio. This podcast lets me listen to it anytime I want! I particularly like Proust’s questionnaire, and it has inspired questions that I ask my own students. Keep up the great work!

Such enjoyment

Thank you Shelagh Rogers, contributors, staff and crew. I have laughed out loud so many times, like the one I heard today about good manners in Erasmus’s time; or shed a tear at an intimate story like hearing some of the Indigenous stories; or reflected on deep heartfelt experiences like Louise Penny sharing about the loss of her beloved Michael; or found a way to buy the book.
Thank goodness for my car radio and your podcasts so I can listen in real time or at my leisure. And to CBC that gives me the opportunity to say to my family and friends “did you hear the one about...” and we often can share our delight from the program. Or say “ you can’t miss this one so I will send you the link,” Thank you again and best wishes.
