About the Show

IDEAS

is a deep-dive into contemporary thought and intellectual history. Anchored

in a powerful legacy and expansive archive spanning over five decades, its

topics are boundless. The nature of consciousness. The history of toilets.

The roots and rise of authoritarianism. Near death experiences. No idea is

off-limits.

Each episode cracks open a concept to see how it’s played out over place

and time -- and uncovers why it still matters today.

Launched in 1965 as “The Best Ideas You’ll Hear Tonight” -- and soon

shortened to its present name -- IDEAS features documentaries, illustrated

interviews, and panel discussions which have earned it a raft of

international and national awards and distinctions. It’s also home to

Canada’s preeminent public lecture series, the CBC Massey Lectures,

which showcase a Canadian thinker “to communicate the results of original

study on important subjects of contemporary interest."

In the age of clickbait and superficial headlines, IDEAS is an oasis for

people who like to think.
