  • Latin Waves

    Latin Waves was born almost 10 yrs ago when Sylvia Richardson’s pas­sion for social change hit the radio air waves. The show was start­ed as a resource to edu­cate the pub­lic about the extra­or­di­nary changes and social move­ments that are hap­pen­ing in Latin Amer­i­ca, there is a lit­er­al black­out in the Cana­di­an main stream media around these his­toric changes. Short­ly after the show start­ed Stu­art Richard­son joined as co-pro­duc­er chan­nelling his pas­sion into jour­nal­ism and research, with such an over­whelm­ing amount of crit­i­cal news not being cov­ered prop­er­ly in the main stream media Latin Waves decid­ed to open its spectrum.

    Our orig­i­nal man­date to cov­er Latin Amer­i­ca still stands but we have expand­ed our cov­er­age into local/​national and inter­na­tion­al issues mak­ing those crit­i­cal polit­i­cal con­nec­tions, we bring our lis­ten­ers in-depth cov­er­age of issues with a focus on the his­to­ry of an issue and what that his­to­ry means for us today and most impor­tant­ly what we can do to move soci­ety for­ward in a healthy way.

    In short our show is focused on build­ing com­mu­ni­ty across bor­ders, pos­i­tive social change has only come through com­mu­ni­ties of inter­est work­ing together.

  • Making Contact

  • Rabble Radio

    rab­ble radio is a week­ly pod­cast and radio pro­gram that tunes in on the issues and actions that mat­ter to you. 

    It is the flag­ship pod­cast of rab​ble​.ca, an award-win­ning, inde­pen­dent, com­mu­ni­ty-dri­ven media. Among the first dig­i­tal jour­nal­ism orga­ni­za­tions in Cana­da, and the first to incor­po­rate as non-prof­it, rab​ble​.ca has been at the fore­front of report­ing on nation­al pol­i­tics with a pro­gres­sive lens that cen­tres issues of social move­ments, of labour, and of grass­roots activism.

    We began as a vision of jour­nal­ists, writ­ers, artists, activists and tech lead­ers across the coun­try. They saw, first hand, the need for broad­er report­ing on sto­ries from civ­il soci­ety. In the ear­ly days, before big tech explod­ed on the media scene, we pio­neered the place of tech­nol­o­gy in jour­nal­ism – from our pod­cast net­work (ahead of iTunes!), to our ear­ly explo­rations of the use of live video to, for exam­ple, stream activism live from the streets across the country.

    Over the years rab­ble has brought labour jour­nal­ism back to Cana­da, intro­duced a par­lia­men­tary reporter to pro­gres­sive, non prof­it media and pro­vid­ed train­ing to gen­er­a­tions of jour­nal­ists through intern­ships and fellowships.

    If you like what you hear, remem­ber we here at rab​ble​.ca cov­er and pro­duce a lot more time­ly news, com­men­tary and even events online. You can find it all at rab​ble​.ca.
