My new favorite CBC program is The Late Show, and it kind of snuck up on me. Each episode is a thirty-minute obituary of a recently deceased Canadian, in the form of interviews with people who knew them, and narrated by Gordon Pinsent. Getting Pinsent was a bit of inspired casting: his steady stage actor’s voice creates just the right tone.

I can’t say I expected to be an avid listener to a show about the lives (and deaths) of “deceivingly ordinary” people, but I’ve caught three or four episodes now and each time I’ve been riveted.

    Me too. I just heard my first episode about an artist and mother (halifax as well). I think her name was something like Gwen K…something or other. She founded Spots Pots. I was in the car and couldn’t stop listening, so sat there with tears welling up especially when the son talked about his mother. I didn’t know they were all done about the deceased. I will try to tune in now.

    Greetings! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My blog looks weird when browsing from my iphone4. I’m trying to find
    a template or plugin that might be able to fix this problem.
    If you have any suggestions, please share.
    Appreciate it!
