IDEAS is CBC Radio's program of contemporary thought.  On the air since 1965, IDEAS is eclectic in form and content, covering social issues, culture and the arts, geopolitics, history, biography, science and technology, and the humanities. Most of the programs are documentaries in which thoughts are gathered, contexts explored, and connections made, but IDEAS also broadcasts lectures, interviews, panel discussions....and some shows that don't fit neatly into any particular category.  Paul Kennedy is the program host.

IDEAS also plays host to The Massey Lectures, sponsored by CBC Radio in cooperation with Massey College at the University of Toronto, and the House of Anansi.
