Totally Spoke'd is a versatile show, combining a variety of perspectives and narratives, including bike stories drawn from cyclists invited by business cards left by the host, Christine Bruce;  commentary on topics like bike lanes and the relationship between motorists and cyclists; interviews with politicians, cycling advocates, planning experts, local businesses and public figures; advocacy for local events; and auditory travel logs with a microphone riding shotgun.

The show has dedicated Facebook (Totally Spoke’d on CICK) and Twitter (@rusticScribe) followers and correspondents, from cycling enthusiasts to local food advocates to musicians, from across the world. Although Christine frequently reaches out for interviews and has charming conversations with everyday cyclists, Totally Spoke'd has become established enough that cycling advocates in Copenhagen, Toronto, Vancouver, Istanbul and Brisbane have reached out to her.
