Irrational is Irresistable and Canada Needs You

There are a lot of reasons to read Doc Searls weblog.

His tip on the NPR parody Irrational Public Radio is the latest.


IPR is the brain child of actor/writer/performer/voice over guy Joe Smith.

Surely there’s someone out there who’d love to take the mickey out of the every-so-serious CBC radio here in Canada.

If nothing else, these guys sure could use it…

CBC Radio 2 is Canada’s national music network. Our mission is to reflect the diversity of music making in Canada while embracing the network values of quality, relevance, and discovery.

Oh, and if someone could explain that header, that would be good.

The 5-years-in-the-making-newly-minted CBC Radio 2 has even launched a blog, fueled entirely by the hard working Jowie Taylor – probably the last guy who has the time. Hmmm, wait, his show Global Village got axed in the network remake – so maybe he does have time.

In any case, Canada Needs You Joe Smith. We have Public Radio Too, um, er, 2.

Believe me. Parody is required.

  1. Thanks! Glad you dug the show! If I can make it to Canada (or at least to making fun of the CBC), I will. After that, the BBC!
