Don’t miss a fun TV, eh? podcast, with Roger Abbott of Royal Canadian Air Farce talking to Bill Brioux about that show’s long run and final season coming up. Then Bill shares some famous television myths from his book Truth and Rumours: The Reality Behind TV’s Most Famous Myths, along with a bonus Canadian truth about Pierre Berton, Bruno Gerussi, and a bloody finger. Chris Haddock, creator of Da Vinci’s Inquest and Intelligence, chats about the Intelligence season one DVD release, the FOX pilot version of that show, John Wells, and Haddock’s plans to take Richard Stursberg’s job. The last part of the podcast is me sitting back and staying out of the way while two of CBC’s biggest personalities – Haddock and Roger Abbott of Royal Canadian Air Farce – survey the state of the CBC.
