Currently loving this podcast, hate the news so this is the perfect antidote. Any chance you could get Lauren Graham of Gilmore Girls on here? Id love to here her take on the world and how good she is at quizzes

Grumpy. I woke up from a nap and I was very grumpy. Ever happen to you? I guess that I needed more ZzZzz. So there's only one solution: get 'Because News' on STAT and start laughing. Always works. Pass it on. -- ❤️ yo nanaRead full review »

Gavin is one of the funniest and most genuinely smart and talented people anywhere. Thanks to you and your guests for helping me get through this crazy life with a sense of humour.

Updated again review. Gotta say, Gavin is so nice on Because News and so unpleasant in his new role on Burbs. Great range, . Updated review. Of the numerous podcasts I subscribe to this is the one that usually has no unplayed shows. It is my go to podcast on a troubling day and, since we seem to...Read full review »

I just love Gavin and crew! So funny and I usually learn something about this week’s news. This show never disappoints. Gavin is so talented!

I often listen to and enjoy your show, but the episode with Sharjil Rasool on Feb 3rd was my favourite. His humour is right up my alley. Thanks for making me laugh!
Grateful for your Efforts via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 02/06/23
I love laughing with you and putting it all in perspective. Suggestion for scoring: - bonus points for really funny - either by Gav or audience Institute penalties - points deducted for missing an opportunity (or blocking another comedian) for a laugh in order to get a fact point...Read full review »

I started listening to this on the road as the radio waves of CBC Radio One floated across Lake Erie from London to my area in Northeast Ohio. I follow this via podcast when I can’t catch it via radio. It is better than what I can get on my local radio dial.

I just got the lineup for the Calgary episode in my podcast feed, and I have to admit that I let out a little, 'Squeeeee!' Andrew? Awesome. Arlene? She is so cool. Nenshi?!?! As well? Most anticipated listening of the current season. For all CBC podcasts.Read full review »

Sept 22nd show is an absolute banger. Jan you are amazing. Keep up the great work!!
Danab1rd via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 10/12/22
Long time listener, first time reviewer. S8 ep3 was fantastic but then in ep4 Jan Caruana did her Phantom song and it was one of the best things to come out of CBC. Keep up the great work.
DnDNotown via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 09/26/22
Hands down the most brilliant person on the show! Chris Siddique is always a favourite and the dictionary guy ( i love you but i forgot your name!) is the three amigos!!

Great podcast! The Debaters is also really funny
🐓chicken🐓77 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/23/22
I am a big fan of CBC and many of its offerings, but I switch the radio off when this show comes on. While some of the regulars are talented, their talent becomes mired in the juvenile, "look at me" orientation of the show. I am also not thrilled by the undercurrent of grumpy cynicism...Read full review »

Best show. Does Andrew Fung know this is a comedy show?

As a Canadian living in the US, I love listening to this podcast for news updates as all the holidays Canadian humour.

You guys are the best! My son is 18 and I’m older than he is… we bond on Saturdays listening to the show - either on the radio or as the podcast. He just needs to stop teensplaining the things he finds funny as we then have to go back to hear what we missed. Thank goodness for podcasts.

Love you guys so very much make me laugh every day I can come back from a bad day of work was your podcast my day gets a whole much better

Thompson Highway says we have to laugh 100 times a day. And you make that so achievable.

Wish the TV show had lasted! Excellent panelists. Hope CBC keeps Gavin and this show going forever and ever.
Vivester via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 08/23/21
Love getting a different view of current affairs with a cheeky hilarious turn. We love hearing the podcast while walking our dog - and, oddly our dog drops a deuce just when Gavin starts talking LOL. Best from the other side of the planet - please keep up the great work

I am a Canadian living abroad and my partner and I joke that we are because news international super fans. And we mean it. We really love this show and the laughter it brings to our lives. We also hope to one day become friends with Gavin. Highly recommend!!!

Churning butter is so much better while listening to Because News. Don’t settle for other comedy news quiz shows like “I can’t believe it’s not Because News!”
Bare Not Bear via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/25/21
Gavin and friends are a staple of my week. I share you laughs, occasional rants and insight (intended or not). You’re all helping my family get through this craziness with a sense of humor. Many thanks for all you do. It is more important than you realize I’m sure. BA

Why? Because news.
Peg Leg's Crown via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/22/21
A great weekly listen filled with laughs and the occasional insight in to the human experience. Better than Prozac.

Hilarity for all ages. My 10 yo makes sure we catch it every week, especially when Kris Siddiqi takes the quiz.
jennycensus via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/20/21
This show is totally the highlight of my week. I listen while I’m out running and Gavin and the crew poking fun at the week’s news just puts that little extra spring in my step. Thanks to you all ❤️ Highly recommended.

Heard my handle mentioned. I meant to give you a 5-star rating on my previous review. Would give the show a 10-star if possible as this is an entertaining way to learn about current events.
