and have a fun thought in the middle of the continent.

Latin Waves was born just over 3.5 years 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 channeling 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.
Let’s Talk About is a program created by Jason Pchajek that aims to cut to the heart of stories in the news, on social media, and in discussions had in coffee shops across the country. Jason aims to strip away the rhetoric, jargon, and (when appropriate) politics surrounding an issue to give you the best explanation of what exactly everyone is talking about.
What exactly is the Carbon Tax? What does ‘gaslighting’ mean? And what the heck are eSports? These questions and many more will be answered by Jason and a rotating cast of guests, friends, and experts from various disciplines, fields, and walks of life.
So, let’s talk about something.
DISCLAIMER: All issues and topics presented during broadcasts of Let’s Talk About are complex and nuanced. As such different aspects may not be explored and certain information may be missed. The aim of this podcast is to shed light on topics and help the average listener be more informed, and while many experts will be present, we might miss something. Everything you read, see, and listen to must be taken as only a piece of the puzzle. This program is no exception.
As we will be programming under some distant circumstances for the foreseeable future, we’ve got some old friends who will be providing us with some programming during the lockdown.
