Podcast News


In Our Ears

Name: Bear Brook
Genre: True Crime
Recommended by: Cesil Fernandes, producer of CBC Podcasts
Why you should listen: Bear Brook is like an onion — in the best way possible. Each episode peels back layers of a fascinating story. I was drawn in from the beginning with the discovery of bodies stuffed in barrels dumped in the woods and fascinated with a deep dive into how isotopes in our teeth and hair can track our movements. I'm more than halfway through the series and with a handful of episodes still left, I can't wait to hear where the story goes.

Name: Everything is Alive
Genre: Society & Culture
Recommended by: Mieke Anderson, producer and mixer of Uncover and Finding Cleo
Why you should listen: I cover a lot of stories that involve trauma, which means I cherish opportunities to find joy around me. And as a maker of podcasts who strives to break with convention in my own work, I also seek out shows that innovate. This whimsical — yet surprisingly existential (!!) — podcast stands out. It features interviews with inanimate objects like Louis, a can of no-name pop. This show made me laugh out loud (yes, I was that person walking down the street giggling to myself).
