Have always enjoyed his style. Listened to him for years on Toronto. Even better on the Current. Like the way CBC breaks down segments to download. 👍

I really like this podcast, the host is easy to listen to but has lively character. I also really like that they broke down the show into segments so you don’t have to stream the entire show if you’re only interested in one topic that day.

Well. That was the one of the most terrible interviews I’ve ever heard on the Current. It sounded as if Toobin was saying I he question back and looking on an answer list to add a pause and another sentence. I listen to CNN podcasts. And the concept of the book is one that I could read. But...Read full review »

Thanks so much for bringing back the shorter segments. Matt is doing an exceptional job. 2020 has been a tumultuous year to report on. AnnaMarie got me hooked on The Current!

Love the short podcasts, but so annoying when a speaker finishes a sentence and another voice immediately begins an ad. Tell us you'll be right back, taking a break, or whatever other cue a listener needs.Read full review »

I know there’s more to today’s episode. So where is it? What happened?

Thank you for bringing the shorter topical posts back :)

While this program does have good content and coverage of certain issues, listeners need to be aware of their well-documented efforts to silence racialized voices when they have something to say that's uncomfortable for the showrunners.Read full review »

Edit: thank you to listening to our feedback and cutting up the current into smalller podcasts! Original comment: Used to listen to 90 percent of the segments when it was divided into topics. Now I don’t want to start a podcast to repeat the experience of listening to the show on the radio for...Read full review »

This format makes me tired. I agree with some of the other listeners, I tend to erase most of the episodes as well. Why did things change? When can we have the old format back?
Frizzz via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/30/20
I echo previous responses I like shorter podcasts in one topic Please consider a return to previous format
dfgh1414 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/24/20
I like the way it was before with each podcast being about one topic. Then I can choose which episodes to watch. Now I tend to delete them all because there is always something I don’t want to listen to and don’t want the hassle of having to fast forward through those bits. Keep each one short...Read full review »

I’ve listened to the Current’s podcast for years because of its high quality combined with the ability to pick and choose between topics. I haven’t listened to more than one episode in the unsegmented format; bring back the old segmented format and I’ll be back to listen. Until then I’m going to...Read full review »

Loved the short segments previously but cannot tolerate the current long programming. I may be home but I’m still busy and selective with my time.

Thank you so much for another wonderful vinyl cafe story last Friday. I have always enjoyed the current and now especially. More Stuart please and keep up the good work Matt!
brandongrad via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/03/20
I really enjoy the podcast, enjoy the penetrating discussions and dialogue, have always enjoyed the guests...but I really do NOT like the new format. The lengthy, non-segmented format is tedious and comes across as lazy. Please bring back the segmented podcasts. They are easier to navigate, much...Read full review »

I enjoy Matt’s coverage a lot. He’s expressive, sympathetic and great content.
Fizzwhiskers via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/29/20
This is a fault with most CBC coverage- but this presenter always defaults to the lowest common denominator in journalism of probing guests for their pain with seemingly insincere sympathy. More news, more real info, more insights please. This is hard to listen to.
hffhhgh via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/23/20
I am more apt to listen to a particular topic on the current know that subjects are divided into many podcasts. It’s easier to sort through and delete topics of no interest. Thank you for the format and overall excellent journalism
Tangled garden via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/19/20
I would love to continue to support CBC but the new format of multiple topics per podcast episode means that I don’t get around to listening to them. Honestly, I don’t have time to listen to every single topic presented, nor do I want deal with very different topics each time. Especially when...Read full review »
Rosemarie Penner via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/17/20
I loved the Current but I find I rarely listen to it anymore that it’s all released as one giant episode. I enjoy picking which 20-30 minute segments that appeal to me, it’s too much work to fast forward through the interviews I’m not interested in, and I don’t have time for over an hour episodes.
pharmer 67 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/14/20
Hate the new way podcasts are released, the titles of the segments are too long they get distracting and frustrating to get a sense of what is being covered. I end up deleting them without even listening. Releasing segments as individual podcasts seemed much more useful and relevant. I would much...Read full review »

Are we going to also release all the grannies from the nursing homes too? I mean if you’re going to release the inmates from the institutions.
Celticvolva via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/04/20
I used to love this podcast but now it is all hour long coverage of COVID19. I understand this is a big issue but can we please balance this out with other interesting things happening in the world? Can we go back to the nice 20min segments on a variety of topics?
m-loe via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/03/20
This show used to publish 3 separate daily podcasts. Now it’s split up into Part 1 and Part 2 with multiple topics in each. It’s much harder to enjoy. Please split them up again.
Former player zzxxyyp via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/01/20
Been trying to stick with the current with recent host changes and some segment are good. But there has been more of a left shift with the show, and I find myself not listening as much as before. The host needs to come across as more balanced, objective, and challenge opinions from all sides of...Read full review »

Informative, engaging, Matt is an incredible host. I never miss a show.
kenneth Sherwood via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/27/20
Well done CBC and Matt. I’ve found journalists today and on other CBC shows, leaning away from being impartial and reporting the news, to trying to impose their beliefs and opinions on those they interview. To the point of a supposed race to see who can be the most dramatic. Matt does his...Read full review »

Anna Maria was often over the top, but Galloway is such a smarmy bugger. Ok for Toronto perhaps but doesn’t work otherwise.

While I’m not a big fan of Matt Galloway, the topics they cover are top notch.

Matt you capture my attention in one show , and for the last 5 years , I never stop listening to you . Thank you for your efforts .

Have become a huge fan of The Current since Matt Galloway joined. He is one of the best interviewers and journalists.

Such an underrated resource for Canadians! THANK YOU FOR ASKING THE HARD QUESTIONS. The recent Huawei podcast was very well done

Would be great if title could explicitly say it’s a replay
KathyLit via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/15/20
CBC should at least try to hide their personal bias on radio and on the web. You may have guests with opposing views but still the host can’t stay neutral. Web reporting is bad too. For eg. a student got kidnapped last year and you were investigating the victim rather than suspects... how he...Read full review »

I listen to this when the topic peaks my interest. As a Canadian, the CBC is one of my resources it keep up with news and current events, so it makes sense that I would check out this podcast, but there are definitely issues. 1.

Hibiscus via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/23/19
A good primer for current events, but a troubling tendency recently observed when the host interviews international guests (see Indian citizenship episode and Hong Kong protests episode). Her tone is frankly confrontational and she essentially interrupts and interrogates people who are...Read full review »
