Through a series of one-hour audio programmes, Canadian Voices presents radio, internet, and podcast listeners the opportunity to hear talks by Canadian authors, academics, activists, artists, and thought-provoking citizens who explore ideas and events that characterize our country. Topics range from cultural diversity, climate change, urban planning and media analysis, to politics, art, education, and literature. The Canadian Voices series is distinct from much public and current affairs radio programming in that each of the featured speakers is a Canadian, the series is produced in Canada, by Canadians, and focuses on topics that are of interest to Canadians.
After 27 chapters of Chinese Feed’s previous cycle about my life in China, I learned that all along I had been broadcasting from the former Laundry of Infinite Achievements – generally referred to as a Chinese laundry. Rather late, also politically dubious but - as I have found since - not surprising, what with Nelson’s official silence about local Chinese, the lack of an officially recorded local history and this non-history not taught in Nelson’s schools. So – Heritage City what. This new closer-to-home cycle of Chinese Feed is my acknowledgment of those Chinese who - against tremendous odds - contributed greatly to putting British Columbia and Nelson on the map! You didn’t know?

www.deconstructingdinner.ca Deconstructing Dinner has been designed to dispense and discuss current food issues. The program assists listeners in making more educated choices when purchasing food either for the kitchen or at restaurants. The syndicated program airs predominantly on radio stations across Canada and also appears on stations around the world. With food occupying such a significant element of our lives, understanding the implications of our food choices can create a real sense of empowerment and self-determination. The media plays a key role in keeping Canadians informed, and the recurring topics we see being covered on a daily basis are increasingly hiding these implications from the public eye. As a result, we are rapidly losing sight of the most important facet of our existence - feeding ourselves. In effect, many of the common themes throughout the media can often be traced back to our need for food, and especially to the lack of attention we pay to this need. We have come a long way in a short amount of time from the age when our days were filled hunting and gathering our sustenance. Conveniences now abound, it has become increasingly possible to put food in our body without barely raising a finger or an eyebrow. This lifestyle of convenience leaves very little time to reflect on the history behind the food we purchase and the impact these purchases have on ourselves, communities, and the well-being of this planet. There are countless numbers of individuals, groups, non-governmental organizations, educational institutions, businesses, and branches of government that are pushing towards creating more sustainable food systems. Yet to this date, the media has played a minor role in tying these people together and broadcasting this important information to the people that matter most - you! Deconstructing Dinner reports on current issues throughout the world of food, with a primary focus on local, regional and provincial issues. The show is not restricted to only current affairs, but probes into the processes and actions to which we have all become so accustomed throughout our daily routine, and “deconstructs” them to achieve a more discriminating awareness.

The year was 1963. In Quebec, the FLQ set off a bomb and killed a guy. In the United States, the Civil Rights Movement was in full swing, Iron Man debuted in the pages of Marvel Comics, and JFK was assassinated. The UK was in the grips of the Profumo Affair, the Beatles released their first two albums, and a small London label called Topic Records released an LP which would prove to be one of their most successful. The album was called “The Iron Muse—A Panorama Of Industrial Folk Song”. and a panorama it was—six different singers singing songs about life in and around the mines, mills, and factories of northern Britain. There were songs of young love and fatal disaster; songs of bitter hardship and nostalgic elegy; songs which told of determined struggle and songs which told ribald jokes. The newest song was three years old and oldest song predated the industrial revolution. And there were instrumentals as well, dance tunes beloved by coal hewers and jute spinners alike. For many folk music aficionados, The Iron Muse came as a revelation, for it showed them that folk song wasn’t restricted to medieval ballads about lovelorn princes and enchanted maidens. Folk songs were still being made by real men and women about the real concerns of their ordinary and sometimes extraordinary daily lives.

Fane of the Cosmos explores the political, social, economic, spiritual and military (if you can believe it) aspects of Cognitive Liberty and the War on Drugs. From Taoist sexual practices to Bill Hicks, Mushroom Tea to Tolkien, this show seeks to blend serious issues with just enough humour to aid in digestion. With its origins in Nelson this radio show seeks to protect and nourish the rich cannabis culture that lives in this area. Fane of the Cosmos was started by Reverand Damuzi as The Church of the Universe Hour back in the heady days of Kootenay Co-operative Radio. With added co-hosts Ian Hunter who had a long run on Vancouver Community Radio and Dustin Cantwell - Co-Owner of Holy Smoke Culture Shop, the radio show expanded many of its themes and radio audience. Following the tragic drowning death of Ian Hunter in Kootenay Lake and the departure of Reverand Damuzi from his senior editorship of the famous Cannabis Culture, the radio show became the sole hostship of Dustin. Over the years the show slowly expanded to a full 2 hour radio show, which allowed more room for modern day speakers like Terence McKenna, who needs more than 10 minutes to explain his brilliant ideas regarding Entheogenic culture. True radio must have an element of desperation to express oneself. With over 70 years of deep seated propaganda regarding drugs this show has sought to break open those myths, to expose them for what they are - mechanisms of control.
