One of the little rituals that grounds my week is listening to my favourite podcasts on Sundays. While I listen, I potter around the house, tidying up and doing chores. And it is seriously one of my favourite ways to spend a morning. My four favourite podcasts are: the Vinyl Cafe, Definitely not the Opera, This American Life and the Dirtbag Diaries.
The funny thing is that when I was a kid my dad used to take my brother and I on drives and he would always listen to the CBC. His favourites were the Vinyl Cafe and DNTO and I resented both massively. I just wanted to listen to my crappy top 40 radio stations. But now that I'm an adult, and I've moved to the other side of the world, I so appreciate the gentle, simple, canadianess of both of these shows. They remind me why I love Canada, and they make me feel like I'm still connected, silly as that may sound. Do you guys have any favourite podcasts?
