Spark is a radio show and podcast about technology, trends and fresh ideas. It airs across Canada on CBC Radio One on Sundays at 1:00 and Wednesdays at 2:00, and lives online at cbc.ca/spark. Spark focuses not on product reviews and gadgets, but on the culture of technology. We look at how it’s changing the way we live, work, and play. Spark also focuses on “fresh ideas”: new thinking about old problems, and unconventional approaches to the challenges of 21st century life in Canada.
