Fresh, Fun, Uniquely Informative!

Day 6 brings together keen, thoughtful interviews (like Fresh Air), intelligently entertaining style (like the old As It Happens) and even daring new perspectives (like no other show I've been able to find). Great host, great mix of stories each episode. I'm grateful to have stumbled across it. I'm not Canadian, and I love it. Highly recommended!

A Great Find

Just started listening to Day 6 on Chicago's NPR. I was immediately taken with it. Great pod-casts for a long commute - happy to find it on I-Tunes. Fast, informative and not the usual news stories. Brent Brambury is an enaging interviewer and his style has a story-telling feel which makes the story and interviewee compelling radio.
