Living on Purpose the radio show launched on CHLY in August 2004 and as a podcast on the Rabble Podcast Network in March 2007. Now it is time to complete a decade of almost 250 episodes on the RPN, with thanks for this platform, and to you, each of my listeners. One podcast channel closing, and another one opening. Today's farewell podcast includes spontaneous monologue and dialogue recorded while sitting on a bench in the sun at Hogs Back Falls in Ottawa. Please keep in touch and thanks again for your ears, with best wishes in life for you and for all, from your host, Lynn Thompson.

Thank you for reading this story...

More people are reading 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. But 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 only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.

If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.

We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing.
