Engage!

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.
