#63 Why I Miss Rob Ford
Stephen Marche co-hosts on coverage of Rob Ford in life and death, CBC funding and CBC’s pledge to eliminate anonymous comments.

Novelist and Esquire columnist Stephen Marche co-hosts.

CBC’s getting rid of anonymous comments. The public broadcaster is also getting a bunch of money back, but they’re short on committments to re-invest in news. Stephen and Jesse look at Rob Ford’s media legacy and the response to his death.
