A\J 39.3: Interviews with Giles Slade and Franke James

A\J Alternatives Journal podcast logo

Podcast for the Art & Media issue of A\J, Canada’s Environmental Voice.

Daryn Caister of the Green Majority interviewed Giles Slade, author of Made to Break and The Big Disconnect (3:00). A\J has an excerpt of The Big Disconnect in the Art & Media issue and online, Bubble of Solitude. Daryn and Giles chat about the way our society disposes of anything we don't like anymore, from stuff to people.  

Franke James realized the hard way that our government does not like dissenting voices. Daryn Caister speaks with Franke (26:04) about having her tour funding pulled and how that inspired her latest book, Banned on the Hill. Order the magazine online or find it on a newsstand near you to check out an essay from the book, "Franke James is your fault?"

Music in this podcast is by Richard Garvey and Janice Lee. Both can be found playing around southern Ontario this summer, and in other parts of the country throughout the year. 

 

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
