Friday Funny: This Is That on Broadcasting and Rebellion

This Is That airs every Saturday morning at 11am on CBC Radio One. If you've been listening lately, you'll have heard about the 57 year-old real-estate agent from Barrie, Tom Hendry, dubbed the "Middle-aged Bieber". We're huge fans here at CBC Live, just have a listen to After Dinner Walk.

If you've not heard the show, head to their site where you can download podcasts, or subscribe using iTunes.


Just don't listen on the subway/train/bus if you're easily embarrassed by sporadic fits of laughter.
