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.
