It seems like everyone with a voice has started a podcast. We’ve even considered it! Then we look at our competition. Why would we bother when there are already so many incredible Northerners killing it on the mic right now? They’ve got it well handled, so we’ll just save our chat for the unsuspecting. Sorry, future Uber drivers! Here are 8 Canadian podcasts totally worth giving a listen.
CANADIAN TRUE CRIME
From Robert Pickton to Karla Homolka, Australian host Kristi Lee explores Canadian true crime stories, mysteries and cold cases in incredible detail. There’s a bit of a 3 episode hump as she finds her voice, but it’s well worth listening to, we promise. This cast is a crime-junkie must-hear!
Explore the world of weird on Nighttime, an award-winning Canadian docu-cast. Each episode features in-depth research and interviews with relevant guests, strange cases and first-hand accounts of the countries weirdest gatherings, events, and people.
I HATE IT, BUT I LOVE IT
From Steven Spielberg’s Hook (which we really didn’t think was thaaat bad) to the Wickerman (which is the worst of the worst), listen in on a fast-paced investigation into the pop culture we love to hate and hate to love.
WE’RE TOTALLY (NOT) OKAY
Same, honestly. In times like this, it’s a relief to know that our crippling anxiety and un-ease is understood. Join Caleigh Le Grand and Justin van Lieshout as they explore the intersection between mass media culture and mental health.

This podcast may be more “educational” than the others listed above, but don’t get it twisted. The hosts are so well-spoken and entertaining that you’ll hardly even notice that you actually learned something by the end of each episode.
GROW-UPS READ THINGS THEY WROTE AS KIDS
The title of this bad boy is pretty self-explanatory. Adults read the ridiculous stories, letters, emails, and messages that they wrote as children. The premise is simple but clever, and it’s freaking hilarious.
Canadaland is an extremely polarizing podcast that covers everything from Canadian media, news and current affairs to politics. Join in on an intellectually challenging conversation about our country from the unfiltered mouths of journalists, writers and host Jesse Brown.
THE STEVEN DANGLE PODCAST
Just three dudes, talking about sports and pop culture. This one is an easy listen, it’s funny and it’s pretty relatable. There’s over 250 episodes of this show, so cozy in, kids. You’re in for one hell of an icy ride.
Ahh, It’s like music to our ears… but not! Podcasts are an incredible escape and honestly, we think we could all use one of those right now. Throw those earbuds in and chill out! These Canadian podcasts are well worth the listen.
