Your guide to CBC podcasts produced in Quebec
Season 2 of Mic Drop, Seat at the Table among new titles
As Season 2 of Mic Drop prepares to launch on Sept. 24, we thought we would highlight some other podcasts that are either produced in the province or are Quebec-focused. Here are six podcasts to add to your listening list this fall.
This is a podcast that hands the mic over to teenagers and lets them tell stories in their own voices. Created in 2018, Mic Drop is the brainchild of CBC Montreal journalist Shari Okeke, who wanted to provide a safe space for teens to talk about what's on their minds– without any adult interruptions.
Produced by Carrie Haber and Shari Okeke, Mic Drop won a RTDNA award in 2019. Season 2 launches on September 24.
Seat at the Table
Friends Martine St-Victor and Isabelle Racicot have in-depth conversations with notable guests from media, sports and pop culture. In Season 2, which launched Aug. 27, they capture personal stories about the power of the Black Lives Matter movement, the urgency of this moment, and what it will take to move forward.
Deep down we all just want to be loved, so why is it one of the toughest things to get right? Love Me is a podcast about the messiness of human connection. It's a peek into the relationships of the people around you. Through personal stories and playful fictions, the show celebrates that weird little voice inside each of us that cries out: "love me."
A podcast hosted by queer, cosmically-destined BFFs Thomas Leblanc and Tranna Wintour. Join the Montreal comedians every other week for deep and spontaneous conversations featuring renowned artists and up-and-coming creators. Welcome to the family!
Produced in Montreal, Wiih'teh is CBC's first podcast in East Cree. Join hosts Betsy Longchap and Mary Shem to explore the nuances, humour, and beauty of the language, share stories and learning and hear from guests about how the Cree language is evolving.
Recall: How to Start a Revolution
While not produced in Quebec, this historical series looks into the FLQ and the October Crisis through the voices of those who lived it, 50 years later. This podcast reveals the stories of that time through immersive storytelling: the bomb disposal expert on defusing live explosives, the survivors of terror, their families, and the radicals themselves.
