Talking Radical Radio is an exciting new addition to the overall Talking Radical project. Rather than historical like the original Talking Radical books, it is broadcasting/podcasting initiative with a contemporary focus that is similarly organized around listening to participants in Canadian social movements. This weekly, half-hour show brings you grassroots voices from across Canada through in-depth interviews that will concentrate not on current events or the crisis of the moment, but on giving 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 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, can listen every week over the airwaves, and folks in Montreal can catch the show some weeks — learn more here. Host and producer Scott Neigh plans to continue approaching community radio stations across the country and offering them the opportunity to broadcast this unique combination of national scope and grassroots focus.
Upcoming episodes will feature organizers with Regina Water Watch and with the Barristas Rise Up campaign in Halifax.
If you think you might know of a group, organization, project, or initiative that is doing interesting social change work, building movements, organizing communities, or resisting oppression and exploitation in the Canadian context, you can either learn more about who we might like to have on Talking Radical Radio, or you can just email scottneigh(at)talkingradical.ca with your suggestion and/or questions.
