Victoria Fenner

Victoria Fenner is on a rich journey of sound discovery which she shares with all ears in attendance.

When many members of the nation-wide National Campus and Community Radio Association (NCRA) gathered for the NCRA Conference in Ottawa in 2006, Lynn Thompson met Victoria and joined in with a group walking silently in the sound of the city.

Following Victoria's lead, the group followed along, listening to the sounds of the city scape that she was recording: sounds that are often missed due to the distraction of conversation and mind chatter.

Recently appointed as executive producer of the Rabble Podcast Network where she has long been a prolific podcast producer, Victoria is enthusiastically sharing the wealth of her 30+ years of experience in listening, teaching, recording, editing and presenting, for the benefit of podcasters here and everywhere!

This brief review of Victoria's sound journey was recorded by phone in mid-September 2014, following Victoria's conversation with Lynn about Living on Purpose beginning in 2004 and joining the rpn in 2007, which is included in a recent episode of rabble radio.

Thanks for listening to Living on Purpose and supporting all aspects of rabble.

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.
