The Current

The Current

CBC Radio

CBC Radio's The Current is a meeting place of perspectives with a fresh take on issues that affect Canadians today.

Listen to the last episode:

In a conversation first aired last month, astronaut Chris Hadfield, Giller Prize-winning author Madeleine Thien and Olympian Clara Hughes join us to share why they believe Canadians have what it takes to weather this pandemic. Plus, we talk to some photographers who are capturing memories (from a distance!) with what are being called “porch portraits.” Then, we’re bringing you a Canadian classic. From the Vinyl Cafe archives, we’ll hear the late Stuart McLean with the 1995 story, Sourdough. And finally, host of q Tom Power brings us chats with singer Norah Jones, screenwriter Alan Yang and props designer John Allen.
