TORONTO – Former CBC personality Jian Ghomeshi has resurfaced with an online music and podcast series.
“The Ideation Project” is described as “a creative adventure with the aim of taking a bigger picture view on newsworthy issues and culture.”
It will feature words, original music, recording and production by Ghomeshi.
The project debuted this morning with a six-minute monologue called “Exiles” that asks “what does it mean to feel like you have no homeland?”
The website says future content will cover “a variety of topics from politics to philosophy to pop culture and the human condition.”
Ghomeshi’s return to the spotlight comes about a year after being acquitted of sexually assaulting three women.
He was fired from the CBC in October 2014 after the broadcaster said it saw “graphic evidence” that the former “Q” host had caused physical injury to a woman.
