On October 2nd, catch Terra Informa live! We’ll be in the booth this week in support of FunDrive: CJSR’s annual fundraising week. Terra Informa is produced by CJSR 88.5 FM in Edmonton, a campus and community radio station at the University of Alberta. You’re just as likely to catch us playing dance beats and Somali rap as environmental news. We rely on listener donations to support the independent reporting you hear from your community on Terra Informa every week.
Help us reach our fundraising goal of $885 on October 2nd and you can get great CJSR swag! Tune in online or at 88.5 FM at 5 pm MST for our hour-long show. Then donate to FunDrive by calling in during the show or by going to CJSR’s website.
Inspired by the live show, we’ll bring you four new stories of Life and Death. This week on the podcast, you can hear a preview of our story about how one young man’s death has shifted the debate on cycling in Edmonton. Then we’ll ask a cattle farmer how birthing baby calves has affected her. We’ll talk to Edmonton filmmaker and poet Anthony Goertz about how he uses art projects like his new film Dump to bring new life to environmental issues. And hear the Terra Informa team debate whether the Northern Gateway Pipeline will bring new life to BC towns like Prince George.
It’s going to be a fun show. Thanks for listening and thanks for your support!
