Talking Radical Radio

Talking Radical Radio is a weekly, half-hour show that brings you grassroots voices from across Canada. Through in-depth interviews, it gives people involved in a broad range of social change work a chance to take a longer view as they talk about what they do, how they do it, and why they do it. The show builds on the historical work and overall mission of the Talking Radical project to listen to the stories, voices, and wisdom of participants in social movements in Canada.

The show launched on February 27, 2013 on a national podcasting venue,, and as a radio show on 96.7 FM CKLU in Sudbury, Ontario. Listeners in Windsor, Hamilton, and Guelph, Ontario; Halifax and Antigonish, Nova Scotia; and Powell River, British Columbia, can listen every week over the airwaves, and folks in Montreal can catch the show some weeks — learn more here. If you want to bring the show to your town, be in touch with host and producer Scott Neigh at scottneigh(at) and he’ll be happy to help make it happen!

    I find it curious that you are able to post this subject: “Remembering a radical experiment: The Vancouver Mental Patients Association of the 1970s” on the rabble website. They recently censored and banned me from that site because I wrote about my own personal struggles with PTSD and how I was mistreated and abandoned by the medical system. Rabble staff banned me and closed my account without any notice or explanation. They only offered an explanation after my 3rd email enquiry, simply telling me my account was closed and I’m banned from writing or commenting on the site because I wrote about my mental illness. I would expect that kind of brutal treatment from a right wing conservative site, but I was shocked and dismayed to be treated that way by so-called progressives, leftists and radicals, who I assumed were my allies. Disgusting.
