  • Prairie Design Lab

    Prairie Design Lab (PDL) is a pod­cast on ideas, design, and cul­ture, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with jour­nal­ist Ter­ry MacLeod. Each episode cov­ers a range of con­ver­sa­tions cen­tered around local and glob­al per­spec­tives and is pro­duced in con­junc­tion with the lec­ture series at the Fac­ul­ty of Archi­tec­ture of the Uni­ver­si­ty of Manitoba.

    The host, Ter­ry MacLeod, is an inde­pen­dent Emmy-nom­i­nat­ed jour­nal­ist and recip­i­ent of The Queen’s Dia­mond Jubilee Medal. In his 33 years with CBC, he estab­lished him­self as a respect­ed, informed, inquis­i­tive, and com­pas­sion­ate pres­ence. He left CBC for new pur­suits on Dec 31, 2016. With CBC Win­nipeg, he was a host on Infor­ma­tion Radio” and host/​producer of The Week­end Morn­ing Show.” In 2005 with Ter­ry host­ing, Infor­ma­tion Radio was named The Best Local CBC Radio Pro­gram in Canada.”

  • 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.
