CanCon Podcast Ep. 47: Did tech make things better in 2016 (or worse)?

Fuck you, 2016

This week, the CanCon podcast is reflecting on nearly an entire year of podcasting about Canadian content – talking Canadian tech and tech from a Canadian perspective. Above all else, the CanCon crew would like to say thank you. Thank you for listening, thank you for your comments and questions and emails, and thank you for helping us bring you the Canadian tech podcast Canada needs and deserves.

Tune in as CanCon’s original podcast crew – Erin Bury, Managing Director of 88 Creative, Patrick O’Rourke, MobileSyrup Senior Editor, Rob Kenedi – TWG’s Entrepreneur in Residence and host of the amazing #smallrooms podcast, and Douglas Soltys, BetaKit Editor in Chief – gives a long goodbye to a year that left a lot to be desired.

Have some hot takes on this week’s show or a previous one? Maybe you want to suggest something for a future podcast! Perhaps you have a burning question about something you read in tech news that we didn’t cover. Email us, post a comment below with the answer or question, or better yet, rate CanCon 5-stars on iTunes and post your thoughts there.
