The CJN Podcast Network

About the Network

The CJN Podcast Network launched in the spring of 2019 to fill in a sorely lacking gap in the Canadian Jewish landscape: there’s no central audio network for Canadian Jews. We’re like a radio station, producing various shows that fill different niches in our community.

By partnering with Canadian Jewish institutions and chatting with guests from around the globe, The CJN Podcast Network continues The CJN’s own longstanding tradition of bringing intelligent, exciting, fresh information and insight to Jews across the country.

The CJN Podcast Network currently offers six shows on varying schedules:

  • The Canadian Jewish Shmooze, a current-affairs program
  • Menschwarmers, about Jews and sports
  • Bubbes & Bagels, celebrating our community’s grandmothers, created in partnership with United Bakers Dairy Restaurant
  • Kol Avrum, a longform interview series
  • United We Snack, a half-hour comedy show
  • The Chosen Food, a six-part series about Canadian Jewish cuisine

So, please, get to know us! You can like our Facebook page, follow the Menschwarmers on Twitter, and subscribe and review our shows wherever you get your podcasts.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to pay to listen?

Nope! Our podcasts are free. There’s no charge to subscribe, nor to download any podcast apps.

How do I subscribe?

It’s pretty simple. First, choose a podcast app. Most Apple users prefer iTunes, since they have it downloaded already. Other popular apps include Spotify, Stitcher, PocketCasts and Google Podcasts. Most of these require you to create an account (which is usually also free), so you can keep all your podcasts together in one place.
