Hot Docs Podcast Festival: See your favourite podcasts live on stage.

Ten years ago, journalist Jesse Brown picked up a microphone and launched Canadaland to give audiences an opportunity to sit in on off-the-record conversations that journalists have when nobody is listening.

A decade in, Canadaland has become one of our country’s preeminent media outlets and independent podcast networks: breaking news, starting national conversations, holding the powerful to account, telling stories otherwise unreported, and proving that Canada is anything but boring.

To open the Hot Docs Podcast Festival, join Jesse Brown (host, CANADALAND), Arshy Mann (host, COMMONS), Jonathan Goldsbie (host, Wag the Doug), Mattea Roach (host, The Backbench), along with a stacked roster of Canadaland contributors, frenemies, and some very special guests for a 10th anniversary live podcast recording. Prepare for bold conversations, unexpected surprises, and an evening where we get together to talk shit about the news.

Tickets: $36 (Members from $32.40)
