Back Porch Bluegrass is hosted by Paul Trenwith, a founder member of the Hamilton County Bluegrass Band, playing banjo and occasionally singing harmony parts. From the mid-70’s to the mid-90’s, Paul and his fiddle-playing wife Colleen played as mostly gospel music, bluegrass-style, with a group of friends, and often featuring songs that Paul had written. He has become something of a musical ‘jack-of-all-trades’, playing banjo, dobro, pedal steel and rhythm guitar. He also plays double bass in the Hamilton-based Irish band. Paul has always been an enthusiastic advocate for and promoter of bluegrass music, and the show includes tracks from the classic bands, the traditional stylists and contemporary groups as well as some ‘roots’ bluegrass and new-grass. NZ and Australian bluegrass gets an airing, and every show includes some of his personal favourites.

In 2019, She Is Your Neighbour was launched in the form of a blog series and social media campaign. Women’s Crisis Services of Waterloo Region (WSCWR) asked community leaders to share their perspectives on domestic violence and explain why they are invested in ending it. These community leaders became ambassadors of the She Is Your Neighbour project. Together, WCSWR and these leaders explored different types of abuse and challenged the misconception that domestic violence refers only to physical violence. Many ambassadors shared stories of emotional, psychological, and financial violence that they have witnessed or experienced.
In fall 2020, the She Is Your Neighbour podcast was released! In the podcast, WCSWR takes a deep dive into domestic violence. Through thought-provoking discussions WCSWR addresses hard topics like domestic violence and the drug trade, violence against Indigenous women and girls, challenges for transgender youth seeking support, and more.
She Is Your Neighbour airs every other Wednesday from 12:01pm to 1:00pm starting 27 January 2021 to 2 June 2021, and is hosted by Jenna Mayne.
WCSWR encourages you to get involved! Read a blog story, tune into the podcast, buy a book, start conversations, and use the hashtag #SheIsYourNeighbour. We can’t do this without you! We all have a role to play in ending domestic violence.

Deep Threes — Music Beyond Boundaries is the weekly radio show that brings you eclectic instrumental soundscapes that fuse jazz, electronica, soundtracks, modern classical, experimental music, and more… “Deep” is a nod to the deep tracks of heard on freeform radio. “Threes” refers to the MP3s that fill up our hard drives and computing clouds.
Since going on the air in 2010, Deep Threes has brought the listener long pieces that take music beyond boundaries. New releases from independent artists. Rediscovered gems from the past. Compelling pieces from with room to breathe. Music with bite, passion and depth.
Themes are not chosen so much as they emerge. Long jams and instrumental tracks create a sense of flow. Light touches of spoken word, found sound, and subtle remixes bind the music into sets.
A Deep Threes mix can float over the clouds in the night sky, or gradually take you across terrain that is radically different than the starting point. Your destination: an oasis of deep listening and discovery.
At the heart of this process is the music. The synergy of math and physics, mechanics and electronics, infused with the human spirit, rising up in a river of feelings alongside all the glistening gems we found along the way. The Deep Threes.

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.
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

While this is a podcast, Harrowsmith 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 fourth Wednesday from 1:00pm to 2:00pm.

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.
