Jian Ghomeshi is back, sort of. The former CBC personality has returned with a new online podcast: The Ideation Project.
The podcast – with words, original music, recording and production by Ghomeshi – debuted Monday morning with a six minute monologue entitled Exiles.
According to Ghomeshi’s project website, the content will cover “a variety of topics from politics to philosophy to pop culture and the human condition.”

The first track, Exiles, is now live:
In a 140-character environment, nuance is often a casualty. The Ideation Project is a creative adventure with the aim of taking a bigger picture view on newsworthy issues and culture, with the goal of asking questions and starting conversations.
The Ideation Project is a new media creative project that features all original words, music, recording and production. The content covers a variety of topics from politics to philosophy to pop culture and the human condition.
Ghomeshi’s public return comes about a year after being acquitted of sexually assaulting three women.
People are responding to Ghomeshi’s new project:
So, one year is the length of time Jian Ghomeshi thinks he has to stay out of the public eye before he can make a comeback? No.
