I don't know why I didn't look for this before, but discovering that CBC Edmonton and CBC have Canada Now and The National available as RealPlayer feeds has me just happy as a clam. I'm sure they've been around for a while now. I just never thought to look for them.
So now in the mornings, while I'm working away I can plug in the headphones, fire up the feeds and watch/listen away to the news going on back home. It's definitely a very different perspective on the news than you get from the local news here, or even on CNN.
I love it :)
