A la semaine prochaine is a Canadian show aired on Ici Canada radio station. Philippe Lague, comedian and presenter, presents this podcast. Every week, Philippe Lague and comedians Pierre Verville, Michèle Deslauriers and Pierre Brassard deal with the news of the week. However, they discuss them in an original way since they use many skits and parodies, which make the news sound more interesting and funny.
At the end of the year, the comedians make a version for TV called “A l’année prochaine” (See you next year), a review of the year that allows us to see a show that remains essentially for the radio during the year. It is also an opportunity to remember the most important events that happened during the year.
Summary: This podcast is interesting because it deals with the news in an original way, with humour and parody.
