5m56s Introducing Amanda Di Battista and the Handpicked Podcast; sustainable food systems from seed to compost: localized, ecologically regenerative, socially just, fair, economically viable.

1 in 8 households, and 1 in 6 children are food insecure, don’t have access to or are unable to afford healthy food. It’s worse in Indigenous and Black communities. We need to move people out of poverty so they are able to eat well, and have culturally appropriate food. People across Canada have some of those solutions which are culturally appropriate and help combat climate change.

Research from PROOF on national food insecurity: https://proof.utoronto.ca/food-insecurity/

Waterloo Region on food insecurity in the region: https://www.regionofwaterloo.ca/en/living-here/affordable-food.aspx

Discussing how climate change affects people’s food supply, affected by stewardship of the land. Through the Handpicked Podcast researchers are sharing information across communities in new ways.

Talking about reslience at the Centre for Sustainable Food Systems, including dealing with Covid-19. Dr. Theresa Schumilas and the Open Food Network offers a new way to participate in food markets, allowing people to pivot and respond to the pandemic. It’s totally Open Source and socially just. Allows both producer to retailer, and direct to consumer, eg. Bailey’s Local Food.

Talking about researchers in the field, eg. Dr. Schumilas, looking at food sovereignty, people’s right to food, and linking that with technological sovereignty, the right for people to control their own data. Building trust relationships with communities, determining what research will meet their needs. Working in “Participatory Action Research” or “Community Driven Research”; the Centre works on several projects, amongst them FLEdGE (Food: Locally Embedded, Globally Engaged), international projects in Brazil and Kenya, as well as policy work at the national and global levels.

28m16s The UNESCO Chair on Food, Biodiversity, and Sustainability Studies with chairholder Dr. Alison Blay-Palmer of LCSFS. Amanda lists the wide network of organizations in international areas.

Talking about the City Region Food Systems toolkit, including pandemics and Covid-19 response. Using the UNESCO chair to build more robust networks in Waterloo Region.

Working with the Waterloo Region Food System Round Table.

Urban encroachment on rural areas? Perhaps in the more food-insecure areas.

35m56s Cold Nights Busty And The Bass Eddie (solarized image of people on the side of a red mountain)Eddie
38m27s Sustainable Food Systems as both a cause and a solution to the global climate crisis, a lever for change. Also, Covid-19 is a window into interesting solutions.

Dr. Alison Blay-Palmer is working with CC-UNESCO, other universities, on how to recover from Covid-19, keeping the environment and food systems in mind. The Building Back Better task force, and position papers in iPolitics. How/where to spend recovery money to have the biggest effect. Prioritizing equity, social justice, and the environmental in the recovery.

Funding for LCSFS comes from Laurier University for operational costs; research is funded through grant writing, some from SSHRC (Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council), government support (some international). No industry funding, so no conflict with research.

Handpicked: Stories From The Field is the LCSFS podcast. There are six episodes in the first season, hosted by Amanda Di Battista and Laine Young, available on all the regular podcast outlets. Telling the stories of the researchers at the LCSFS. This is a way to get the research out into the public, directly from the researchers themselves. Quick synopsis of some current episodes, and next season. Talking about Season 1, Episode 6, the Open Food Network, activist coders, Open Source Software, and the Free Software resources in Waterloo Region.

Talking about Hold The Line celebrating municipal legislation and protecting rural areas from urban encroachment. How other municipalities imagine their roles in sustainable food systems.

Podcasts as a research tool, provides open access to research. Podcasts bring research to life.

CKMS Community Connections for 6 July 2020

Because of Covid we’re still not having any guests in the studio, and this week’s there are no phone interviews either, so it’s another show packed full of new Canadian Content music.

There are new tracks from Kingston’s Willy Nilly, JC Townsend, station favourites The Soviet Influence, local Cambridge group Shy Harry, and from Storry, whom we hope to have on the phone for an interview in the next few weeks.

But if you’ll indulge me for a few minutes, we’ll end the show with a bit of comparative musicology. I’d heard about the Vocaloid musical voice synthesizer before, but finally found something worthy of radio airtime when I read Vocaloids: Our Friends Electric by Mariana Timony writing for Bandcamp Daily. In the last 10 minutes of the show you’ll hear Offend In Every Way played by Beam Morrison using a Vocaloid synthesizer, followed by the original by The White Stripes, and finishing off with a bit of, um, old-fashioned synth music. Not new, and not CanCon, but this week that’s what caught my ear.

–Bob.

    CKMS Community Connections for 1 June 2020

    Another week, another hour of Canadian Content music. We would have had Woody Woodburn as our guest for an interview and a Live, On-Air, In-Studio performance, but the studio is still closed for the Covid pandemic. Happily, Woody has released an album Woody Woodburn | Better Man Today (stylized W)Better Man Today, so we’ll be playing some of those tracks.

    The studio is being prepared for re-opening — we’re equipping it with hand sanitizer, cleaning wipes, and mic socks. In a couple of weeks we can have our programmers back in the studio, and we’ll open to studio guests some time after that.

    In the meantime, here’s an hour of old and new CanCon for your listening pleasure!

    CKMS Community Connections for 18 May 2020

    Chris Sherren at the microphone
    Chris Sherren
    Today is Victoria Day, a statutory holiday in Canada, and a day when Chris Sherren who fronts Deaf By Design would have been available for a Live, On-Air, In-Studio performance and interview. But we’re still in the middle of the Covid pandemic, and the studio is still closed. So there’s only recorded music today, and we start off with a few tracks by Chris.

    Be sure to check out Chris’s show Into The Void, which airs Fridays from 10:00pm to 11:00pm, with a replay on Sundays at 6:30pm.

    And we have Canadian Content music at two extremes of the genre spectrum: Technical Death Metal, Black Metal, Progressive Death Metal, and Alternative Metal, all followed by Alternative Rock, Synth Rock, and maybe some Folk.

    There have been no podcasts for the CKMS Community Connections music shows; podcasts will resume once we have guests back in the studio.

    CKMS Community Connections for 11 May 2020

    Bel-lig-er-ent | belijerent / (adjective) 1. hostile and aggressive (album cover by Kwazzi) I would have had Toronto Hiphop artist Kwazzi in the studio today, but we’re still closed for the Covid pandemic. So I’m playing a brand new track Handouts, as well as some tracks from his Belligerent album. Say it with me: “Kwa-Zay”! He’s addicted to Instagram, so check him out at @therealkwazzi.


    Attract Hazard | Sam Nabi (album cover) Sam Nabi  crouches in front of some plants an dhis stereo I’m also featuring local Kitchener Hiphop artist Sam Nabi, with some tracks from his new album Attract Hazard. You can find Sam and his music on Bandcamp.

    And to round out the hour, there’s a bunch of new (to me) CanCon music from Indigenous artists in the Nikamowin catalogue.
