Holiday Letter Three: Ode to two public radio podcasts

Dear Jian Gomeshi & Ira Glass,

You host two of my favourite podcasts – Q (Jian) and This American Life (Ira). Your shows differ in format, focus and country of origin, but coincide in their optimism about the possibilities of public radio journalism and their interest in human stories. I listen to your shows while I exercise, while I travel within and beyond Montreal, while I cook, while I do work around the house, while I make my many ‘to do’ lists and sometimes while I fall asleep. Unbeknownst to you, we spend a lot of quality time together and, in the spirit of optimizing that time, I offer the following suggestions for the upcoming year.
