CBC Radio's Outfront 

CBC Radio's Outfront is both a whisper and a shout; stories that are intimate in a public way. It tells stories of love and longing, hope and despair, of life, of discovery and insight.

CBC Radio's Outfront is radio stories about real life. It's all about your ideas, your experiences, your perspectives, your story. It's an hour of storytelling, experimental audio and new ways of making radio.
