UMFM is pleased to announce we’ll be air­ing a lim­it­ed run series pro­duced out of CFUV in Vic­to­ria called Some­thing Else.

In a recent coun­try wide poll on tur­tle island indige­nous peo­ples were exclud­ed from the stats, mak­ing them cat­e­gor­i­cal some­thing else”. As Indige­nous peo­ple the pop­u­lar belief is that we live some­where between mar­gin­al­ized and extinct. This pod­cast invites the lis­ten­er deep into the space between the lines, out­side the mar­gins, it embraces… oth­er”. On this pod­cast you will fol­low 3 Indige­nous pro­tag­o­nists as your tour guides into the tri­umphs and strug­gles of con­tem­po­rary Indige­nous peo­ples. The some­thing else uni­verse was born from a yearn­ing to cre­ate the sanc­tu­ary my own ner­vous sys­tem need­ed. It is a space where rage is cel­e­brat­ed, dreams are cul­ti­vat­ed, rest is cen­tered, and heroes are born. Just as its name sug­gests this pod­cast is unlike any oth­er, it pulls ele­ments and action from our world now and skill­ful­ly weaves them anew in this nar­rat­ed indige­nous futur­ism land­scape. It is my wish that this marks the begin­ning of a very long, very ancient jour­ney togeth­er, lis­ten­er and storyteller.

The some­thing else uni­verse was cre­at­ed, writ­ten, voice act­ed, sound­scaped, pro­duced and edit­ed by Kat Coulée” Ross. Spe­cial thanks to the staff and vol­un­teers at CFUV 101.9FM. Orig­i­nal score and music by Reil8 of @the_r.a.p_ Art­work gen­er­at­ed by AI pro­grams, Mid­jour­ney and DALL‑E.
