Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, the moment you’ve all been waiting for . . . the unveiling of the Civilians Read champion.
Listen to the final podcast [Running Time 20:22]:
If you’d like to bring the Civilians with you everywhere you go (and who wouldn’t?) all the episodes are now available for download at Audio Archive.
Today’s video confessional is a little bit less of a mash-up (and don’t worry folks, Nic has all his clothes on this time) and we let the panelists get in their final two cents:
And our last series of behind-the-scenes photos, which prove that despite the lovey-dovey opening photo series, we don’t always play nice:

A big thank you goes out to the panelists, who were as prepared, animated, and eloquent as I hoped they would be, and more. And as a final recognition for their hard work, gentle listeners, please help me give out an MVP Award to one of our panelists. Vote for whichever panelists you think was too good for this ramshackle operation and should be going straight to the hallowed halls of the CBC:
Next week, I’ll be taking on my regular coverage of the Canada Reads competition, with daily posts right after the 11:30 broadcast finishes. Finally, after a lengthy stint as a (mostly) neutral host, I’ll be able to let my opinions fly. As a warning, if you plan to listen to the evening podcast, do not come here until then, because otherwise this will be spoiler central. Our panelists may even weigh in on the conversation here or on twitter, and we’d love to keep up the fantastic discussions we’ve started here.
The week following Canada Reads, come on back to the KIRBC — we’ll have some discussions with our panelists as the weigh in on their experiences, compare Civilians Read with Canada Reads, and tell us whether or not they ever want to hear the words “Canada Reads” ever again.
And the week following that and following that? Well . . . just come back forever.
