CURIOUSCAST TRAVELS BACK IN TIME WITH
TWO NEW PODCASTS

For Immediate Release
TORONTO, September 14, 2022 – Corus Entertainment’s award-winning podcast network Curiouscast announced today that it will add two popular Canadian made history podcasts, Everything 80s and Canadian History Ehx, to its incredible catalogue. These new additions join the network’s growing slate of content, which include the acclaimed podcasts Crime Beat, History of the 90s, The Ongoing History of New Music, Dark Poutine, Nighttime and The Peak Daily available for free on all streaming platforms.
“What unites all Curiouscast podcasts is great storytelling and we are excited to welcome these two dynamic voices to our lineup,” said Chris “Dunner” Duncombe”, Director of Streaming and Podcasting, Corus Entertainment. “We know our listeners love history and we’re committed to delivering them exciting new shows like Everything 80s and Canadian History Ehx.”
Everything 80s is the ultimate nostalgia podcast transporting listeners back to the epic decade when giant cell phones and VHS tapes were a staple. It’s a one-stop shop for all things 80s in movies, TV shows, games, toys, music and more. From Back to the Future to Saved by the Bell, and Madball to Transformers, the podcast discusses the greatest pop culture crazes that defined the decade. The podcast is created and hosted by Jamie Logie, a personal trainer and nutrition specialist, best-selling author and contributor to numerous publications such as Readers Digest, Ask Men, and The Atlanta Tribune, and who of course grew up in the 80s.
“I am beyond thrilled join the Curiouscast family to share my love of the 1980s and all its pop culture and historical greatness,” said creator/host Jamie Logie. “I love that Curiouscast is not only home to some of the top podcasts, but that they are Canadian, too. Despite being such a growing and influential podcast network, there is a close-knit and personal quality to Curiouscast as they continue to open us up to new ideas, insights, and entertainment.”
Canadian History Ehx explores the nation’s fascinating history in an entertaining way. Canada’s history can be overshadowed at times by American, British or world history, but has an enthralling past. Covering everything from nostalgic TV to wars and conflicts, Indigenous history to local stories coast-to-coast. This podcast is created and hosted by history aficionado Craig Baird.
“My main goal with Canadian History Ehx is to show that Canadian history is not boring,” said creator/host Craig Baird. “From daredevils jumping over Ontario’s Saint Lawrence River in a rocket-powered car, to margarine bootleggers in Newfoundland, to our amazing Indigenous history, I want to cover as much as possible. I am excited to join the Curiouscast podcasting team.”
