The CBC does something right.

March 26, 2007

Now I’m going to be honest here, I’m not a big fan of the CBC.  Don’t get me wrong, I loved it when Peter Mansbridge took Paul Martin to town, but they’ve always bothered me a bit.  Now I’ve started downloading the George Stroumboulopoulos Hour Podcast and he’s a very good interviewer.  Check out the interviews with Franklin Graham and Tony Campolo.  They are both very interesting in terms of how he interviews someone he probably disagrees with.

I love Campolo’s line, “On [judgment] day, He’s not going to ask you theological questions… its not going to be ‘Virgin Birth… strongly agree, somewhat agree, no opinion…’ Its gonna be ‘I was hungry, did you feed me? I was naked, did you clothe me? I was sick, did you care for me? I was an alien, did you take me in? …because I’m not up in the sky somewhere, I’m waiting to be loved in people who hurt.”  Perfect.

  3. Hey there Liam, Great to see you on the weekend… Man, I am so sorry that your hate for the CBC is rooted in that awesome concert we heard that night after youth. You may not know, but both CBC Radio 1 & 2 are cued up in my car and that is why we stumbled across that show that night. Great link to Strombo and Campolo I too appreciated the interview… Tony has some Truth to speak. You need to give the CEEB a little more of a chance, it is like family, sometimes you are going to get a great show, and sometimes you are going to get your quirky Aunt Dorothy… They can be equaly memorable.
