  I Am Everything is a music talk show about everything and nothing…. Think The Strombo Show meets CBC Q. Your Punk Father Shyun Atøwn will showcase genres like new indie rock and punk and rap, even throwing in some local rock bands that need that exposure. And sometimes you might hear some cool guests along the way. Shy’s objective for I Am Everything is to profile bands that not many know about but mainly to bring back the next great music show since the days of Much Music. He is everything you need him to be and yet nothing at all.

Changemakers Without Borders

Example is not the main thing in influencing others. It is the only thing.

Albert Schweitzer, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, humanitarian doctor, philosopher and author

Changemakers Without Borders is hosted by May Cooper on Radio Waterloo, CKMS, as well as on Peach City Radio, CFUZ in Penticton, BC. You can also find Changemakers on her home site, where you can even leave a voice message!

What is Changemakers?

Changemakers Without Borders is a spoken-word episodic interview and biographical podcast that explores changemakers in our history who’ve made a positive change in our world, and through these stories, hopefully inspire us to be changemakers in our own lives.

I also interview current community changemakers who are investing their time to better their surroundings, and who take true action to make a positive difference.

My Approach

I take a more personal slant in my show to demonstrate that every leader in our history was, in fact, human. Despite each and every one of us having a difficult challenge to overcome, we can seek encouragement from these personal stories, and allow them to propel us forward.

The knowledge of leader’s triumphs can aid us in our present and future so that we can seek to become more responsible and innovative stewards of our future, and only allow the positive aspects of history’s leaders to shine through.

Changemakers Without Borders airs on CKMS Wednesdays from 8:00am to 8:30am

Harrowsmith Radio

While this is a podcast, show logoHarrowsmith began as a groundbreaking Canadian magazine. It came to life on the kitchen table of James Lawrence in Camden East, Ontario in 1976. Back then it didn’t seem likely that his vision of a national magazine on the virtues of getting back to the land would last.

But before long Harrowsmith took off, quickly attracting legions of fans. Tapping into an urban desire to move to the country, the magazine also appealed to dyed-in-the wool ruralites. What Canada got was its magazine to promote green living and a country lifestyle. It also got the venerable Harrowsmith Almanac.

Over its 46-year history the Harrowsmith name became synonymous with Canadians living sustainably.

In this podcast we proudly continue the spirit of James Lawrence’s vision of sharing useful information for country dwellers and anyone seeking to tread a little more lightly upon the earth.

Harrowsmith Radio airs every other Wednesday from 1:00pm to 2:00pm.

Zero Waste Countdown

Zero Waste Countdown Podcast showing hands holding a green earth with windturbines, solar panels, and buildingsZero Waste Countdown is a 30 minute radio show all about sustainability from a zero waste perspective.

What is Zero Waste?

Zero Waste is a concept that eliminates unnecessary waste from the regular consumer cycle to decrease our impact on the planet as a whole. A countdown to zero waste is a pledge to reduce waste in personal lives, organizations, communities, and even entire cities or nations. While reaching total zero may seem impossible, a countdown to zero waste is a manageable approach to living with less trash.

The Host: Laura Nash

The ocean is on a countdown to 2050, when scientists predict there will be more plastic than fish. Laura is on her own countdown: to get as close as possible to zero waste. Through research, interviews, and personal experiences, Laura is on a mission to produce less waste and leave a happier, healthier planet for future generations.

“It’s a Vibe” with Sherice

show logo“It’s a Vibe” with Sherice plays music that you don’t normally hear on the radio in Kitchener. Growing up with a Caribbean background in Ontario, I always wondered why I could never hear my type of music on the radio and now I want to make that a reality. I will be bringing my Caribbean flow, playing Soca, Reggae, Dancehall as well as some R&B and hip hop to offset it. We will be having live discussions, talking about universal law, the law of attraction and anything spiritual or universal. I would also love to use this platform to bring awareness and education surrounding issues such as trauma, abuse and consent to the forefront, teaching our community to share love instead of hate!
