The series was called "The Old Guy", I didn't catch the title of the particular episode.
Some of the characters are Charlie (McMann?McCann), Malcolm and Joline.
Also, it was a replay, I recall hearing it first a couple (~ 1 to 3) years ago.

I tried searching the CBC web site for a reference or production credits & c.
but turned up nothing.
.. I thought the web site might be a good backup/reference for the broadcasts,
but apparently it's like the majority of (esp. corporate/commercial) web sites
out there: 95% fluff, useless graphics, filler & advertising, 5% content. Even
the "archives" seem to be a selection of material based on what somebody-else-thinks-is-important.
