ENGAGE! is a brand new podcast on 101.5 UMFM that interacts with the people and organizations in our community who have taken the initiative to help grow and give back.
Join hosts @_JosueDavi__ and @CaidJones each week as they feature interviews from those in the city who truly stand for and embody the word “Community”. From constantly giving back to under-represented folks, to leading vital community based initiatives here in Winnipeg.
Our community has gone through struggles and adversity before and we all know this past year has been even harder on so many of us. At Engage, we connect directly to those in our community who are working to make a difference, fighting for those underserved and underrepresented.
