Radio 3's podcasts are truly unique: they're full of amazing, 100% Canadian music from new and emerging artists. This is great news for music fans, and it's even better news for independent Canadian musicians. We are extremely excited about the potential for exposing Canadian artists to a wider international audience and are proud to be some of the top podcasts worldwide.
With over 3.8 million downloads since June 2005, the CBC Radio 3 podcast features host Grant Lawrence introducing audiences to an hour of the best in new Canadian music every week. Find out why Exclaim calls it "Canada's most important podcast" and why Spin magazine called us "the top podcast in Canada".
