WR Podcasts is CKMS-FM Radio Waterloo’s showcase of some of the podcasts produced in Waterloo Region. Each week we air one or two episodes from local producers to give you a taste of what’s available in Waterloo Region.
Changemakers Without Borders is not currently on the schedule.
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.
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.

You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for any suggestions for people to interview, or if you would like to come on the show as a person who is making a positive influence with your work. You can also write to me about a particular episode you want to ask about, or give me feedback or comments on!

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.
Zero 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.
Zero Waste Countdown airs on Thursday mornings from 5:30am to 6:30am.

“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!
“It’s a Vibe” with Sherice airs on Friday from 9:00pm to 10:00pm.
At For The Wild, we discuss the critical ideas of our time and parlay them into action for the defense and regeneration of natural communities. Key topics include the rediscovery of wild nature, ecological renewal and resistance, and healing from the trauma of individualistic society. We will travel deep into ancient forests, align with the struggles and ways of Earth-based people, and rekindle the mysteries of intuition. We will join today’s brightest visionaries in this momentous work of reimagining a world where humanity can find its way back into the web of life.
For The Wild airs on Wednesdays from 5:30am to 6:30am.
Ayana is a lover and protector of wild nature. She was studying Ecology at Columbia University when the Occupy Wall Street movement began. Amid the burgeoning resistance in Zuccotti Park, she created the Environmental working group with March Young to help orient the movement to the realities of a suffering planet. From there she moved West to her beloved Cascadian bioregion, starting an organic farm and wild foods cartel on an Oregon mountaintop. In Portland, she had the fortune of learning from the herbalist Cascade Anderson Geller. Ayana is currently creating an ecological research center and native plants nursery in the Southern tip of the Cascadian bioregion. She teaches about empowered earth stewardship and leads biodiversity enhancement workshops across North America.
