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, an award-winning, independent, community-driven media. Among the first digital journalism organizations in Canada, and the first to incorporate as non-profit, 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 cover and produce a lot more timely news, commentary and even events online. You can find it all at
