TV, eh? podcast episode 222 — Astringent Oak & Resinous Pine

Recording earlier on a Family Day Monday means Greg went the non-alcoholic route for a beverage choice to make Diane proud.

Of course, we cover the latest new (Bellevue), concluding (Cardinal, Mary Kills People) and returning (Masters of Flip, Timber Kings, MasterChef … Canada) Canadian TV series via the calendar. Also on tap: TVO reverses its decision to stop transmitting to eight communities … and Greg and Anthony discover where Cloyne, Ont., is. Finally, we discuss Rogers’ decision to shut down one of its community stations, meaning important voices are being silenced.
