    dance around,

    go for a walk, decide to talk, 

    you’re dri­ving around, smok­ing those sticks,

    give some time to rethink those bricks,

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


    Cheers!

  • hurlements sur la toundra

    Chaque semaine, à par­tir de la toundra dans un bunker datant de la Guerre froide, l’animateur Nafre pro­pose des thé­ma­tiques exposant ce sous-genre du métal extrême. Musiques païennes, dénon­ci­a­tions mis­an­thropiques, muta­tions esthé­tiques et prim­i­tivisme total ser­vent de points de repère dans cette quête mal­saine. Vous y enten­drez les révéla­tions les plus ter­ri­bles, qui bru­tale­ment se heur­tent au prob­lème de l’ex­is­tence et à la froide vérité de la nature. Une explo­ration radio­phonique que pour les plus enhardis…

  • Latin Waves

    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...

    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.
