If you follow Canadian media you’re probably familiar with CANADALAND – the podcast network and website launched in 2013 by veteran journalist and broadcaster Jesse Brown.
CANADALAND is an exploration and, more importantly, a critique of Canadian media and politics and a look at where the two intersect.
In its first two years of broadcasting, CANADALAND has played a vital role in breaking major news stories, most notably the sexual assault allegations against CBC host Jian Ghomeshi. The show also spotlighted potential conflicts of interest for CBC hosts Peter Mansbridge and Rex Murphy, both of whom accepted thousands of dollars in speaking fees from the energy industry. Amanda Lang’s ties to the Royal Bank of Canada were revealed by CANADALAND, and the show also exposed the influence of the energy industry on Canadian Geographic magazine, and revealed improper activities by newspaper editors at the Irving-family media empire, Brunswick News International.
