The Enright Files: What does it mean to be Canadian?

Where can I find the Enright Files: What does it mean to be Canadian? I heard snippets of it on the radio and I am hoping to find the podcast. The Enright Files: What does it mean to be Canadian?

What happened....

This is not Paul’s ideas, it’s lost it’s nuances and understanding of the subject matter. It is sad to lose a show that has inspired me for so many years. Paul Kennedy has retired... the show has fallen...

Peeking over the border

I am honestly so jealous of Canada, although I know it’s expensive there. Throughout the CBC they spend a lot of time breaking down the giant garbage heap that is my home country, and they make me feel sane. Ideas is always spot-on, thoughtfully progressive, and very niche. I’ve only skipped a handful of episodes that were too niche for me. Sean Foley is an amazing contributor, and while I was worried when the fantastic Paul Kennedy retried, once Nala took over the podcast remained just as wise and insightful. Thank you all at Ideas for your amazing work!

Hands down my favourite podcast

Ideas is a tantalizing journey down new pathways of thinking. Host Paul Kennedy is an incredible moderator, interviewer and above all, storyteller. Been listening for years. Highly recommend for anyone curious about the human condition, literature and philosophy.

Traveling mind

I like getting out of the U.S. to have a look around the globe occasionally, to see how others outside my local realm are viewing their lives and the world around them. "Ideas" plays it's part in giving me another lens through which to view the bigger picture.. Over the last few years this program has covered a lot of ground across a broad range of subjects, landscapes, and perspectives. The program has a new presenter as of this summer. She is doing a great job in continuing the exploration and discussions.

Race mongering gibberish

Such a hate filled and race baiting episode. Does no one at CBC edit or review content before publication anymore?

When fake news talks about fake news

CBC, you need a little more self awareness. Canadians can see through your fake news propaganda machine. And doing episodes about the right to be “free from lies” is just too much.

Music of Matter, & Recurring Recursions

This are beautiful episodes! I saved them, and listen repeatedly; visualizing the concepts to help me remember. I think they could also be smoothed a bit (in audio technique) and submitted to be served as pre-bedtime relaxation distractions. They are at least as beautiful, or more so, than that well-known reading about the lavender fields of Provence (on the calm app). Bravo and thank you!

Hard left tilt

Interesting topics, sometimes well covered. However there is a strong left bias that borders on being agenda driven in some episodes. I’d like to see a more well rounded approach particularly as the CBC is publicly funded.. its damaging to any news media to come across as pushing a political agenda with little more than straw man arguments for opposing viewpoints

Drug use for grown ups

The speaker/thinker’s definition of grown-up is void of any diversity & !narrowly defines this as essentially being perfect in all developmental domains.He essentially is describing privilege & naively suggests that when this cohort uses drugs it’s somehow better, different and beneficial. I’d use the reverse analogy of vaccinations.The few who may not have any detrimental effects from recreational drug use are indulging in something unnecessary for them and that insidiously harms most people.it’s selfish & in my experience working in the field, most in the group described here eventually develop problems associated with drugs once deemed helpful.

Fantastic Show

An excellent long-running Canadian show that features panel discussions, lectures, and most enjoyably original audio documentaries about any number of fascinating topics. You can go from one episode exploring the history of hotels — as a concept, as a business, as a unique headspace — to another about the future extinction of the human race or some unexplored facet of world history. This show is a gem.

A show that requires you to think

Not every show will appeal to every person, but there are few shows that pursue knowledge, thought and theory as thorough and as well as CBC Ideas.

Great show!

“Ideas” presents challenging thoughts on a daily basis. As with any program, some episodes are more interesting to me than others. Many bear repeat listening. Ignore the negative reviews.

Not the same as it used to be

I used to enjoy listening to this podcast. It had a Variety of thought provoking and interesting topics where we could all learn something. Now it’s all the same eye rolling garbage about politics, race and gender that we hear all the time.

Lots of Reruns

The new content is great, but this channel is mostly reruns.

It’s the Radiolab of Canada!

And Robert Kennedy sounds like he’s Robert Krulwich on tea, instead of coffee. Seriously, were the two Robert K’s separated at birth?Just as Radiolab plays with and explores ideas, this show does the same, but unplugged. It doesn’t have Jad Abumurad’s textured production, but it’s still really good.

One of the best

Truly one of the best shows on radio anywhere. I’m so glad to be able to get the podcasts, as I live in the US and there is nothing like this available here, even on NPR. A very intelligent and thoughtful host who is a pleasure to listen to.
