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, Rabble.ca, 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)talkingradical.ca and he’ll be happy to help make it happen!
