Curiouscast adds Everything 80s, Canadian History Ehx to podcast lineup

Corus Entertainment’s Curiouscast podcast network is adding Canadian made history podcasts, Everything 80s and Canadian History Ehx, to its catalogue.

Everything 80s is exactly that, transporting listeners to the decade of giant cell phones and VHS tapes. Hosted by Jamie Logie, the podcast discusses both 1980s pop culture from movies, TV shows, and games, to toys and music, in addition to historical events that took place over the decade from a Canadian perspective.

“I am beyond thrilled join the Curiouscast family to share my love of the 1980s and all its pop culture and historical greatness,” said Logie, in a Corus release. “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 Canada’s history covering everything from nostalgic TV to war, historical figures, Indigenous history, and profiles on small town Canada. The 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 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.”

Everything 80s and Canadian History Ehx join the network’s growing slate including Crime Beat (adapted for TV on Global News and Hulu), History of the 90s, The Ongoing History of New MusicDark Poutine, Nighttime and The Peak Daily.

“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.
