The broadcaster Matthew Lazin-Ryder, a producer at CBC Radio’s The 180, discusses his work, history, interviewing, journalism, and the CBC, with Joseph Planta.
Text of introduction by Joseph Planta:
I am Planta: On the Line, in Vancouver, at TheCommentary.ca.
Matthew Lazin-Ryder joins me again. We’ll talk about broadcasting and some of the current affairs issues that he and his colleagues tackle over at The 180, the radio program hosted by Jim Brown on CBC Radio, which airs Sunday mornings, where Mr. Lazin-Ryder is a producer. I usually catch the rebroadcast on Monday afternoons at 2pm here in Vancouver. They cover a wide variety of topics, and from an often fascinating perspective. He was an associate producer over at the On the Coast program, and he hosted The Invisible Hand, a great economics program from 2012 that you can still download at iTunes. The Twitter handle is @Lazin_Ryder. The website for The 180 is at www.cbc.ca/the180. Please welcome back to the Planta: On the Line program, in studio as it were, Matthew Lazin-Ryder; Mr. Lazin-Ryder, good morning.
