We're back from our summer break to bring you the most exciting new podcast releases. But first, some news... Our former host Lindsay Michael has been away on maternity leave, and we're sad to say she has taken a job outside the CBC and won't be rejoining us. We've had so much fun with interim host Elamin Abdelmahmoud, but his time with us was only supposed to be temporary. (And he's busy hosting some other great shows and even writing a book!) So, all this to say... We have a brand new permanent host taking over! Co-host of The Secret Life of Canada Leah Simone Bowen is the new voice of our show! Along with podcasting, Leah is also a playwright, writer, theatre director and producer. We're so excited to have her on board, and to introduce you to her all-time favourite podcasts (coming soon). But for now, let her take you through this month's best new releases. Remember when weed was legalized in Canada? It didn't get rid of the illegal marijuana market — in fact, it did the opposite. Actor Jay Baruchel (aka Seth Rogen's bestie) hosts a new podcast that will tell you more. Later, a new CBC Podcast examines the rise of conservative radio. Before Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Alex Jones, there was Charles Coughlin. Plus, the story of how Black jazz musician Daryl Davis met a KKK member at a bar, and ended up inspiring hundreds of people to leave white supremacist groups. All this and more is waiting to kick off your fall. Just press play! Featuring: Highly Legal, The Invisible Hand, The Flamethrowers, A Slight Change of Plans, & Telling Our Twisted Histories.
