FredPenner

My guest today is a household name to 2 generations of Canadians.  Fred Penner is a children’s entertainer who had a long running program on CBC television throughout the 80s and 90s called Fred Penner’s Place.  His music has been a strong influence upon me and many other children’s performers.  I sat down with Fred in my friend, luthier Ron Belanger’s booth at the Mariposa Folk Festival.  You can hear a quite a bit of the vibe from the festival and the other vendors in the background. It was an absolute thrill having Fred jam along to For the Sake of the Song.  You can find his music at fredpenner.com or at Casablanca Kids,

Canadian100club-500 px final

I’ve been working for a couple months to produce a webpage of Canadian podcasts which have produced over 100 episodes. In the podcasting world, the 100th episode is considered a milestone.   Click here to go to the Canadian Podcast 100 Club.

Congratulations to the great folks who created 100 or more episodes of the  following 21 Canadian Podcasts.

Congratulations to the great people who have brought you all this great programs.

I have compiled the list using the amazing Castroller website. Castroller is a site that allows you to easily find, manage and share collections of podcasts. Check it out.  You can find all the Canadian Century Club Podcasts at http://castroller.com/channels/centuryclub .

You can import an OPML file of the whole set into your favorite podcatcher at http://castroller.com/channels/centuryclub/opml

Please let me know if there are other Canadian podcasts with more than 100 episodes which I have failed to add to this list.  I would be happy to add them.

  • Update: Somehow, the amazing lovehatethings blog and podcast slipped under the radar of my awareness.  My loss.   Anthony Marco is a blogging and podcast machine.  In a little over a year, he has posted about 500 articles and 104 podcasts about, technology, pop culture, music, social media, the copyfight, a pinch of sarcasm and a pound of rant.  Congratulations Anthony on reaching the your 100th episode.  I’m late to the party listening to your podcast but I’m hooked.
