After two weeks live on air on 101.5 UMFM (Wednesdays at 5:00) you will soon be able to hear Shaking the Tree Radio whenever you want by listening to our podcast, coming soon to environmentalconservationlab.ca.
In case you missed it, what have we been talking about on air? In our first show we addressed the theme of food justice – what is it? how can it be addressed in Manitoba? what are the barriers that are preventing it from happening? We were joined by Kreesta Doucette and Raquel Koenig of Food Matters Manitoba and by Kimlee Wong, an activist on indigenous issues, particularly regarding food and children.
Our second show took on the topic of environmental justice. Our guests included Jeff Masuda (a professor at the University of Manitoba with extensive experience working in urban contexts in Vancouver and Toronto on environmental justice issues), Misty Potts-Sanderson (a PhD student from the Alexis Nakota Sioux Nation in Alberta), and Colin Anderson (a PhD student from rural Manitoba, currently living and researching in Oregon).
The coming weeks include many exciting topics: the northern fishery, hydro development, the Growing Local conference, and much more! So take some time, give us a listen on air or online, and let us know what you think! We’re always open to suggestions for new shows.
