I've been meaning to blog about this for a while: CBC Radio is posting most of its shows as podcasts at http://www.cbc.ca/podcasting/
. Highlights for me include "The Best of Ideas
", "How to Think About Science
", and "Talking Books
". One recent entry is an interview with Dr. John Evans
, formerly of the innovative medical program at McMaster, and the founding chair of MaRS. In a way, the web is turning radio into books: instead of being ephemeral, radio shows can now be permanent parts of the great conversation we call civilization.
