Jason Kenny interview.

I love your podcast but find it unfortunate that you chose such a divisive podcast title for the Oct 10 Jason Kenny interview. He spoke about wanting a strong Canada and highlighted the role that a strong Alberta has played through transfer payments to other provinces etc historically but you chose to paint him as a divisive leader. I know there are many people who only read headlines and I believe the media has a responsibility and role to support a strong Canada as well. Especially CBC. Please choose more representative titles of the main theme talked about by your guest.

Advertising in the middle of a CBC PODCAST

Why is there an advertisement popping up in the middle of my CBC Podcasts? This is a new thing and I DON’T LIKE IT.Stop the advertisements.

Host doesn’t hide their bias very well!

I generally like the podcast- the topics are interesting and informative. However, even as someone with leftist political leanings, I would appreciate the show more if the host was even moderately able to remain un-biased and neutral in her reporting. During her interview with Jagmeet Singh, she very clearly let her beliefs and personal opinions show. She was rude to him and cut him off multiple times. And before anyone says it- no, I’m not saying that simply because she’s a woman. If any host asked questions as aggressively as she did, me OR female, I’d be put off by it.

Biased and left leaning.

Paid for by Canadians for liberals.

Generally good, but separated episodes overwhelming my feed

I’ve been a fan of the Current for a while, and i appreciate having it in podcast format. However, being subscribed to this podcast overwhelms my daily feed. My other podcast episodes are frequently buried in The Current sub-episodes. Many other podcasts make weekly or biweekly updates, with even the most frequent news podcasts putting out one per day at max. But the Current dishes out multiple eps in a row during a single day, and it seriously makes me want to unsubscribe. This would have been less of a problem if apple’s podcast app was in its original ~2012-era format, which was more compact. But especially now, it is tedious and frustrating to navigate through more than 5-10 episodes, and so having a billion Current episodes in my feed really is frustrating. Please offer a consolidated podcast, at very least, as an alternative.

Generally informative

Appreciate the discussions and framing, but are there no men of colour who would like to participate? There are male liberal feminist voices too. Why is there no representation?

Just wish you would (or could) podcast sooner! I tune in in the middle of something and want to start listening from the beginning!

CBC mandate

Sure seems like CBC has a government mandate to promote Global Warming scare and LGBT because every day they talk about it.

I Hate to Start My Day Without It

This show is topical, informative, and balanced. Anna Maria Tremonti is a genius! There seems to be to end to her knowledge. She holds her guests to account and asks the tough questions while remaining classy, sensitive, and compassionate. I’m so sorry to hear she’s leaving! My day is not complete without listening to The Current.

Informative but misleading descriptions

It’s always informative, often creative and sadly, often misleading and much more mundane than as described.

Strong variety in interviews.

I appreciate the varied topics but have real trouble when an interviewer *constantly* interrupts the interviewee (eg. Duncan McCue in his ADHD segment). The expert speakers knew a lot about their topics and were illustrating to their points efficiently. (I am left to wonder if this was a topic of self interest for the interviewer and if impulse control was at play. It devalued the potential of the interview, in my opinion.)

Terrific podcast ...

... love being able to listen to all of the daily segments, separately. Allows to easily pick those segments of interest to me.
