MidweekThe Radio Show
Bad news for birds, good news for bees, help and a kind word on the streets, and a skeptical eye on politics — all that and much more on this week’s edition of Midweek!
First show of the season! This Midweek took us deep into dark matter out in space, around the corner to the flea market, and to a BeYou workshop to help young girls build confidence. Lots on art that moves, melts, washes away in the rain, or…isn’t real — plus therapy dogs, climate change and lots more!
A new September, so a new Midweek team takes the helm! Our dry-run show was meant as practice, not for airing — but went so well we’re sharing it. Stories on workplace mental health and believing those who report abuse, through to the endangered Rocky Horror Picture Show — with malaria, memory and mass transit along the way. A great start!
Well…here we are again: We’re unable to broadcast our regular Midweek show on CKCU-FM as the contract dispute between Carleton University and its support workers continues, but we do have two more of our great Midweek Podcasts — with our latest batch of stories!read more
We’re still unable to bring you Midweek through the airwaves, but here’s another pair of podcasts with our latest stories: making the justice system more just for Indigenous people, fixing the no-fly list, a “convertsation” on Islam, and days dedicated to fragrance and to happiness. All that and more!read more
For the second week in a row, Midweek has had to improvise: The ongoing labour dispute at Carleton University, where we’re based, means we are without the vital support staff who get our shows to air on CKCU-FM.
Instead, here are two podcasts to bring you this week’s terrific Midweek stories. Enjoy!
