Welcome to the Frequency Podcast Network. We’re Canadian. We make podcasts. We’re a curious little collection of different voices and subjects, but we’re all in love with honest conversation and deep storytelling. And we’re just getting started. Have a listen below, and subscribe wherever you get your podcasts.
In 2010 Rob Ford ran for Mayor in Toronto. To much of the city, his campaign was laughable: full of embarrassing scandals, anti-immigrant sentiment and declarations of war on ‘elites’. But he won.
Then came the drinking, the drugs, the police investigations. It was a dark crime drama that most of the world only caught a glimpse of. And even during the worst of it, much of the city loved him.
Does that sound familiar? It should. His rise to power revealed how politics and media were changing. And his legacy lives on in governments around the world today.
The news cycle never stops anymore. But The Big Story slows it down for you, gives you proper context, and laughs at it when that’s all you can do. Jordan Heath-Rawlings has been wading through the news for 15 years, and he knows how confusing, painful, terrifying and ridiculous it can be—sometimes all in the same story. Every weekday morning he’ll serve up an in-depth conversation on a story that matters to Canadians with some of the country’s best journalists and thinkers.
The extraordinary stories of six ordinary heroes who made history, from the spy who saved D-Day to the greatest whistleblower of all time. One person can change the world. Here’s how.
Evanka Osmak hosts a national sports show late at night, and Melanie Ng is a reporter on a morning show at the crack of dawn. They’re both moms and they’re both…busy. And tired. Each week, they meet in the middle of the day to talk parenting. Tune in for their stories about the good and the bad, advice from experts and honest discussion. Whether you’re a working mom, a stay-at-home dad, mom of many or one, aunt of some, godfather of lots—it’s hard! It helps to know you’re not alone.
From food and banking to masculinity and entertainment, the business and cultural establishment faces an insurgency. The rebels want nothing to do with the old ways of selling, building, or doing things. It’s not just disruption. It’s a coup.
Host and marketing expert Ron Tite brings listeners inside the industries fighting for their futures. He speaks with the executives in power, the entrepreneurs challenging their dominance, and the academics and journalists watching the revolution. By the time we’re done, you’ll know who’s in, who’s out and where the rest of us stand because of it.
Produced by Church+State for Rogers’ Frequency Podcast Network.
The world needs visionaries…teachers…leaders. But the world also needs these guys: Garner Andrews. Bryce Kelley. Hosts of The Lawn Chair Prophets. A podcast for all of the lands. Behold as they discuss the minutia of everyday life from the comfort of some woven fabric, folding lawn chairs. What’s the pettiest thing you’ve been dumped for? How weird is that weirdo you work with? All will be answered on The Lawn Chair Prophets.
SOMEONE ELSE’S MOVIE is just what it says on the label: Each week, an actor, director, screenwriter, critic or industry observer will discuss a film that he or she admires, but had no hand in making. Hosted as genially as possible by Norm Wilner.
Hilary Welch and Sandra Plagakis attempt to navigate the world of sex and relationships, but they’ll be the first to admit they still haven’t figured it out, either. Not even remotely. So every week, they’ll invite guests to share their unique and compelling stories from the world of love and lust. Expect a lot of laughs, and some very real conversations about the connections that are so important in our lives.
Canada’s favourite radio show is The Roz & Mocha Show. It’s your go-to show for entertainment and pop culture exclusives. If you don’t hear it on The Roz & Mocha Show, you won’t hear it anywhere else.
The Roz & Mocha show is powered by Air Transat.
The diversity that makes Canada special isn’t often reflected in the stories we hear and the discussions we have. Black Tea will change that. Writers Andray Domise and Melayna Williams are here to have the tough but important conversations right out in the open, and have some laughs while doing it. Join them each week for insightful and uncomfortable discussions; about issues that matter to Canada’s Black communities.
This is not a podcast about where you’re going, but about how you get there. You probably know Maureen Holloway as co-host of Canada’s #1 morning show, 98.1 CHFI. What you don’t know is that when she’s not on-air, she’s travelling. From Portugal to the Poconos, Mo has been nearly everywhere, and she knows all the tips and tricks that will make your trip the best it can be.
Canada is the second country in the world to legalize pot, and the details are still hazy. For the past two years, we’ve wondered what would actually change when the day arrived. Now that it has, we’ll start getting you answers on everything from buying and selling to culture, enforcement and tourism. Join CityNews reporter Shauna Hunt as she explores the highs and the lows of legalization.
