I love Canadian shows. Mostly of the “radio” kind. I’ve been to see Jian Ghomeshi and listen to a bunch of CBC podcasts such as WireTap. I also am a fan of “independent” podcasts such as Drunk Jays Fans and Humble & Fred Radio.
I’ve never met these icons of Canadian radio. I never listened much to CFNY/The Edge back in the day when they were on. And I was late finding them on the podcast airwaves. But I am a big fan. They are an intelligent duo who also know how to have fun and let their hair down. And their style is perfect for the word of podcasting.
And now I’ve been invited to be a guest “observer” during their show on Friday June 7th. Will I be an actual, on-the-air guest? It’s all up to Howard (aka Humble) and Fred.
Maybe you can help me make their decision an easy one. I would love it if you could take a moment out of your busy schedule to tweet the following:
Hey @HumbleFredRadio! We’re excited that @karimkanji is going to be visiting you on 6/7. Let him on the air! #KarimOnTheAir
That’s all. If you want to use HootSuite or Buffer to schedule the tweet from today until the 7th, that would be swell!
Many of you know I love listening to podcasts. Almost everyday I’m commuting 2-3 hours per day. So I spend most of this time listening to podcasts such as This American Life, Wiretap, This Week in Startups, and even the UFC ESPN Podcast.
Last week I discovered another podcast: Humble and Fred Radio. I wasn’t a big listener of theirs when they where on the radio here in Toronto. However, these guys are gold. They are funny and raw. Besides their random musings they also have amazing interviews. Recently they had Toronto Blue Jays long time announcer Jerry Howarth on. This was one of the best interviews I have ever heard.
Great job guys! And congrats on your new deal with Corus.
