Oooh, that was fun.
The TV, eh? Blogtalkradio show went into extra innings today (the live version gets cut off if you do that, but the archive podcast, which is by far the most listened to version, captures the whole thing). Because … how could I cut off Chris Haddock, creator of Da Vinci’s Inquest and Intelligence, when he was not only dishing about the DVD release, but also the FOX pilot version of Intelligence, John Wells, and his plans to take Richard Stursberg’s job? The last part of the podcast is me sitting back and staying out of the way while two of CBC’s biggest personalities – Haddock and Roger Abbott of Royal Canadian Air Farce – surveyed the state of the CBC. Let’s just say they aren’t hoping for the status quo. Cool stuff for Canadian TV geeks out there.

- About 45 minutes in: Chris Haddock on Intelligence and much, much more
Fascinating discussion, even though I am saddened to hear that “Air Farce” will be winding it up. I suppose I can keep up with Canadian politics by reading the newspapers and “Macleans” online, but it won’t be anywhere near as much fun as “Air Farce” has been over the many years in which I’ve watched it online, or listened on Radio Canada International.
