About the Show

  • TV
  • ONLINE

Enter the mind of Jonathan Goldstein. It's a nice place to visit, but you wouldn't want to live there.  Each week, WIRETAP invites you to eavesdrop on a mix of funny, thoughtful and unpredictable stories and conversations. Whether it's a tale about what it's like to date Lois Lane after she's broken up with Superman, or an interview with a man who works as a ketchup sommelier, you never quite know where WIRETAP will take you.

The Montreal Gazette calls the show "something between borscht-belt comedy and Franz Kafka" and The Toronto Star describes it as "[pitting] the absurd against the plausible. The sense is of a world not completely unlike our own that runs parallel... conversation, storytelling and introspection, culled from equal parts real-world experience and the warp of Goldstein's imagination."

WIRETAP won the 2004 Gold Prize for best weekly comedy program at the New York Festivals and in 2012 received a special mention in the Prix Italia competition for Best Original Radio-Drama.
Hosted by: Jonathan Goldstein
