On a recent Tuesday afternoon, the CBC’s new podcast Fresh & Cheap was being played.
It was a good time to catch up on the week’s events, including the death of the country’s first aboriginal prime minister and the arrival of a new mayor.
“It was like a dream come true,” said Dan Kessel, the hosts of Fresh & Low, as he watched the show from his office at the CBC.
“The CBC has always been a platform for the voices of people who are marginalized and marginalized in society.”
On Wednesday, the program will air a special episode featuring some of the CBCs most famous names, including Bob Rae and Mike Duffy.
In that episode, the host will introduce a new character, “Fond,” who is the first black person to be a regular host of the program.
“We were excited to introduce Fond to the CBC audience,” said Kessel.
“She has a lot of talent, a lot to say, and she’s been really vocal about her struggles, and we think that’s really important.”
But for all the talk about the CBC becoming more inclusive, it’s hard not to wonder what it means to actually see a black woman as a regular presence on the show.
And it’s something Kessel has been thinking about since he started Fresh & Free in 2003.
Kessel says that while the CBC has long prided itself on its commitment to diversity, the reality is that there are people who don’t fit into its boxes.
“I think the reality of the situation is that many people on the CBC are white, male, heterosexual, cisgender, able-bodied,” said the Toronto native.
Kessel believes that it’s important for people to hear from others of their race. “
But, of course, I think there are also people who do not fit into those boxes.”
Kessel believes that it’s important for people to hear from others of their race.
“That’s something that I think about every day, that’s something I try to work on,” said he.
“To be able to tell other people who have experiences of racism, that they can speak out against it.”
The CBC has been working to improve the way it handles race and ethnicity issues for decades.
In 2016, the broadcaster launched a national diversity initiative called Diversity Plus.
But even as it tries to create more inclusive programs, Kessel said the CBC needs to keep a close eye on the diversity of its workforce.
“There’s a lot going on, and it’s very important for us to be aware of that,” he said.
“Especially when it comes to women, as well.
We have a long way to go to make sure that we have women in the workforce and that we are doing our part to ensure that we’re treating them fairly.”
The reality is there are many black people who aren’t represented in the CBC, he said, and there are still more than 200 Aboriginal women in Canada.
“So, the real question is, what are we doing to make the work that we do feel more accessible and that our voices are heard?
And I think that we need to be mindful of that.”
“When we look at how we’re going to be doing that, it starts with our diversity in the workplace,” he explained.
“Not only are we a white, heterosexual male industry, but we’re also a white-male-dominated industry.” “
I would say that our workforce is predominantly white, cisgendered, able bodied,” he continued.
“Not only are we a white, heterosexual male industry, but we’re also a white-male-dominated industry.”
As the CBC continues to try to diversify, Kessler said that there’s a good chance that more and more people of color will be left out of the company.
“People of colour are a very visible part of this company,” he told CBC Radio’s Today program.
While it’s impossible to know how many black Canadians are working at the broadcaster, Kess says that “at least half of the staff is black.”
But he added that the CBC is also “still a white business,” and it is important that the people of all races are also represented.
“This is the job that we’ve chosen for us,” said David Kessel as he talked about the role that people of the same race play in the work of the corporation.
But that’s not the case for every other CBC employee. “
And with that, the podcast was over.

At the CBC today, we’re not always the first or the last to say: ‘Hi, this is my name, I’m here to work for you,'” said Kess.
