We all have them, but we don’t always ask because we’re not sure we want to hear the answers. Here are four shows that talk about how we live and why, with some people we know and some people we haven’t yet met.
The One You Feed — conversations about creating a life worth living.
Blank on Blank — a sporadic show with lost interviews from cultural icons.
There are also two shows that take on the big questions strangers ask of each other: Sleepover (a CBC show that puts strangers together for a night to solve each other’s problems) and Beautiful Stories from Anonymous People (a hour long conversation where the caller can hang up but the host can’t — anonymity means they usually go very deep very quickly).
