Podcast: Ann Pornel of 'The Great Canadian Baking Show' talks food, fashion and more

A fun podcast interview with the multifaceted comedian and TV show host Ann Pornel

'The Great Canadian Baking Show' co-host Ann Pornel.

We've got a special guest co-host for our fall episodes of Melodies and Menus and it's none other than CCMA Award-winning country singer Hailey Benedict!

To get the episode started, Dan Clapson puts Hailey in the hot seat to talk about her catchy mid-tempo ballad "Damn You July" as well as her upcoming tour with Tim Hicks. The two touch on fall cooking and some of Dan's favourite recipes from his recently-released cookbook Prairie before they dive into interviews with two reality show hosts including comedian Ann Pornel.

As an undeniably loveable co-host of the equally loveable The Great Canadian Baking Show, it's no surprise that the discussion with Pornel is lively, thoughtful and, of course, hilarious too. The GCBS cohost discusses her vibrant approach to fashion (and her iconic 2023 Canadian Screen Awards look), what week she fears most for the GCBS home bakers, women in Canadian comedy, and more.

The Great Canadian Baking Show Season 7 airs weekly on Sunday nights on CBC and CBC Gem.
