We've had great response to the rabble radio pilot. Thanks everyone. We're pleased to announce that on August 15 rabble radio will go live and we'll be bringing you a fresh show every two weeks. Stay tuned for some of the features you told us you loved in the pilot, and listen for some fresh ideas we hope you'll like.
Two things. First, rabble radio is your show, we're just bringing it to you. We'd love your contributions (soundseeing tours, music etc.) If you scroll down this page, you'll see who to contact to get your content into rabble radio. Second, rabble radio is a volunteer effort. There are a half dozen of us working on it now. If you'd like to contribute some time to making it the best damned progressive left podcast on the planet please get in touch with lisa@rabble. You don't need to know how to podcast to help. There are lots of jobs to do.
Thanks for listening. See you in August!
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.
