CMG Podcast #109 is dedicated to the Leonard Cohen contest we have coming up on January 31st—the same day Cohen’s new album, the tantalizingly titled Old Ideas, comes out. Let me just say, before getting to this podcast: start collecting your best haikus about Leonard Cohen and check our DailyOps section next Tuesday for info on turning those haikus into free stuff.

Until then, with thanks to all of the artists involved, enjoy a podcast that gets pleasantly Halifax-heavy in the second half and will more than once tell you to go fuck yourself, deal with it:
