CBC Radio One - Canadia: 2056 by Matt WattsCBC Radio One is re-broadcasting the first episode of the first season of its Science Fiction / Comedy radio drama series Canadia: 2056 today! Tune in Wednesday, January 2nd 2008 at 11:05PM (this episode will repeat on Friday January 4th at 11:30AM). Don’t know how to hear the show? If you’re in Canada, tune your radio to the appointed station at the appointed time. If you’re outside of Canada or just want to time shift a bit, click on over to the Streaming Radio Map for CBC Radio One.

If you didn’t hear Canadia: 2056‘s first season the first time around do please tune in, you’ll be glad you did. Still a bit skeptical? Check out the Wikipedia entry for the show. Or have a listen to the three promos HERE.

Here’s my intro to show #1:

Episode 1: Getting the replacement parts to leave Earth orbit is harder than getting episodes of the hot TV series Foxy Chalet (”the best Canadian show the Americans ever made”).

UPDATE: Someone asked how to “time-shift listen”, if we ignore Newfoundland (sorry Newfoundland) time zones are pretty easy to figure out across Canada. Just subtract 1 hour as you head West across Canada from the East coast. If you are in New York, NY you’re in the same Time Zone as Toronto, ONT (EST). If you’re in Los Angeles, CA, you’re in the same time zone as Vancouver, BC (PTZ). And of course you need to pick the city appropriate to your time-shifted choice on the Streaming Radio Map to hear it…

  1. How are the episodes (he asks as he primes his stream ripping apparatus)? It looks like Radio One has a 6 minute spot set aside for it, although they mark it as “TBA” which conforms to your earlier link to a post about the lack of actual publicity for the show.

  2. Its on at 11:00 PM today not 11 AM. Its playing in Afganada’s slot. Although based on the CBC Radio One hotsheet it sez its playing at 11 am:

    ” 10. CANADIA 2056: ***also heard Friday at 11:30 (noon NT) on CBC Radio One***

    Head back into outer space today as Canadia 2056 returns. It’s the weird and wacky comedy drama starring Matt Watts from Steve the First and Steve the Second. It is the year 2056. The United States has launched an armada to destroy an alien threat. Canada sends the nation’s only publicly-funded spacecraft, The Canadia – a ship with a single purpose. Flush. To plunge the Americans’ toilets. Travel with them! Canadia 2056, this morning at 11:30 (noon NT) on CBC Radio One. “

  3. And let us all say a prayer of thanks that we’re finally getting to hear the show outside of working hours… and just kind of ignore the fact that our tax dollars paid for someone to write the phrase “weird and wacky comedy drama”. It’s a very enjoyable series that just gets better throughout season 1.
