Live Through This - Mondays at 9:30 am / Wednesdays at 7:30 pm
Host: Andrew Kaufman  
No one turns the dial when the hero is hanging off the cliff. For 10 weeks you'll hear extraordinary stories of survival - from the most extreme to the seemingly mundane, from mutinies at sea to desperately seeking silence. Everyone has something they're surviving. 

How to Do It: The Guide to Everything Else - Tuesdays at 9:30 am / Thursdays at 7:30 pm
Co-hosts: Sarah Treleaven and Josh Bloch
After last summer's successful run, Josh and Sarah are back with another helpful guide to things you hope you never need to know, like how to get rid of a body, how to survive the apocalypse and how to sell out.

Grownups Read Things They Wrote as Kids - Wednesdays at 9:30 am / Saturdays at 6:30 pm
Host: Dan Misener
Dan Misener invites brave Canadians to read their childhood writing...out loud in front of an audience. Embarrassing, moving, hilarious - all captured live during a 10-city tour.

The Bugle and the Passing Bell - Thursdays at 9:30 am / Sundays at 6:30 pm
Host: Beza Seife
Fifty years ago, CBC Radio devoted 17 hours to the voices and stories of the men who fought in World War One. This summer, to mark the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the war, documentary producer Steve Wadhams and host Beza Seife bring those voices and stories back to life.

Head to Toe - Tuesdays at 11:30 am / Thursdays at 11 pm
Host: JJ Lee
Head to Toe stops you on the street and peers into your closet to ask, "What are you wearing, and why?" Host JJ Lee finds threads of vulnerability and surprise in our clothing and, through history and social science, peels back the layers to give us a new understanding of what we put on.

What a Waste - Mondays at 7:30 pm / Fridays at 11:30 am
Host: Torah Kachur
CBC Radio science columnist Torah Kachur starts from the premise that there is no such thing as waste, just wasted resources. As we try to clean up the mess we've made of the planet, Torah explores what can be done with everything from our leftover food to our nuclear detritus.

Newhounds - Saturdays at 11:30 a.m., Mondays at 11:30 a.m.
Host: Adam Growe
You've got to be first, but you've got to be right. That's what drives the news business, and it's what drives CBC Radio's new quiz show.  Play along with host Adam Growe and two guest contestants, and discover how much attention you really did pay to the world this week.

The Moth Radio Hour - Fridays at 1 pm / Sundays at 7 pm
CBC Contact: Lesley Peck
From PRX, our public radio partners in the U.S, true stories told live. In the words of the judges who awarded the program a Peabody: "Storytelling, likely the oldest art, is revered and reinvigorated by this hour for everyday raconteurs."

Project Money - Tuesdays at 7:30 pm / Fridays at 9:30 am
Host: Anna Maria Tremonti
