Today on Commotion with Elamin Abdelmahmoud:

  • The Porter isn’t getting picked up for a second season, despite leading the Canadian Screen Awards with 19 nominations. Three creators take stock of the Canadian TV landscape, its financial reliance on networks abroad and the challenges in getting diverse Canadian stories on the air.

  • Musician Ben Gibbard gives us an exclusive 20th-anniversary oral history of The Postal Service’s only album Give Up.
