I don’t believe that’s an entirely accurate summation of events. As I understand it, the CBC, in their not so infinite wisdom, decided to drop the on-air radio program, but keep the podcast. Jesse gets to be a sort of roving Internet reporter for other shows, but he does lose the production staff that came along with having his own show.
I’m glad he’s still around, obviously. Zombie Jesse was a nice touch.
The CBC also has another Internet-related show called Spark, which is quite a bit fluffier, focusing on Internet lifestyle sorts of things. It’s not the same, but it does cover some interesting ground. This week’s interview with Brewster Kahle of the Internet Archive was quite good.
