Showcasing the very best in new Audio Drama

CBC and Audio Drama Under Siege

I grew up with the CBC. I can honestly say that much of my love of Audio Drama was ignited by this network. CBC Radio was on first thing in the morning, and I remember listening to shows on weekends, and in the evening. CBC kept me informed and grew my understanding of Canada, the United States, and the World. CBC is family to me. Nothing more and nothing less.

And because it is family, CBC has kept me comforted during long lonely drives, rides across the country where everything was unfamiliar- CBC was home.

So I’m asking, from me, Jack Ward, that you support this initiative. CBC STILL keeps me, many Canadians here and abroad, and citizens from all around the world informed, entertained, and connected- ESPECIALLY now through their podcasts. As a public broadcaster its been able through the generations to create some of the best new audio drama in the world, train some of the most exciting new talent, and annoy politicians and private businesses because their business has been reporting the truth.

Help protect one of these last bastions of the public, please?
