    This sounds fascinating, thanks for the link!

    An official podcast would be ideal, but the unoffical one looks good enough for now. Hopefully the launch of the official version will be announced in the show itself?

    thanks for the link Cory. Too bad they don’t have the official podcast out but seems they’re anxious waiting to release it. It will go with my other CBC podcast like Search Engine.

    Joel Phillips,

    All the episodes of “Age of persuasion” have titles.

    Could you tell us, please, which specific episode you think is the MOST useless. And maybe explain a little as to why it is useless?

    To #12:
    Didn’t you here that Search Engine has moved to TVO since CBC canceled it.

    Another good program about advertising is “The Gruen Transfer” on ABC Australian tv.

    Great show Cory – but there’s no podcast at the link you posted.

    There is however an unoffical podcast here – http://ageofpersuasion.wordpress.com/

    The site you linked to only streams the shows.

    Huh? Yeah, a search on itunes brings up nothing. And on the AOP website, it still says they’re working on it. Regardless of this, it’s my favorite show!

    Thanks Gareth (and Cory for getting this started). Been waiting for this show to be ‘cast for a long time. j.

    My wife has worked with Terry in the past, he’s also a really really nice guy… apparently :)

    Brilliant! Thnx, Cory.

    Just a note for Gareth – it’s not a proper podcast, true, but if you really want or need to download the files they’re easy to find in the source of the pages. Pain in the butt but still easily available.

    When they get an iTunes link or a proper RSS feed for the podcast could you please post about it on BB? Cheers.

    There IS a podcast – just not an official one:

    Oops – sorry Cory!

    This is a bloody awful show. How many episodes do you think would be necessary to examine

    “the cultural and sociological impact of advertising on modern life”?

    3? 6? 10? No, millions. Endless, endless, ridiculously North American-centric analysis of supposedly clever advertising for products I’ve never heard of. Meanwhile, it cancels Search Engine.

    The only positive thing to be said about the Age of Persuasion is that as a CBC presenter, Terry O’Reilly is slightly less annoying than Gregory Charles. Stay away, folks
