Until Dec 2008, this episode didn't have an audio track. Now it does, as I sift through the episodes following the Rabble.ca site upgrade. I've posted the short piece I put together for the Radio Ephemera (ThirdCoastFestival.org) radio awards in the summer of 2008. The point was to blend the themes from two of 5 on line books they presented (I chose Sex Ed for Teens and The Social Significance of Trees) along with the voice of a 'stranger' who can be a famous person......(this was fun to put together, altho I didn't receive an award!)

As ever, your visits to Living on Purpose on the Rabble Podcast Network are appreciated. During this breather for your host, Lynn Thompson, there are many Episodes to check out if you haven't yet listened to all of them. The time has arrived for Lynn to visit Florida in April to meet people involved with the Radio Ear Network project, for whom she's been remotely producing a weekly two hour show of Living on Purpose since February 2007.



Thanks for listening, and see you in May, right here on the Rabble Podcast Network.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca 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, while striving to make it sustainable as well. 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 main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
