New Podcasts!

The latest podcasts are now available on our CJSR News Page!

On our second FunDrive show the theme was Resistance! Jocelyn, Laura, Saba, and Derek brought you a little bit of Adamant Eve’s history, including a clip from our first show, talked about the Roman Polanski case, and played part of our interview with prison activist, Vikki Law.  Again, thank you so much to everyone who donated and supported feminist news in Edmonton!

On October 9th, Saba hosted with some awesome spoken word pieces, Sam brought us Radio Eve with Get Together by T. Nile, and we play the first part of Laura’s interview with Vikki Law. This part of the interview is about activist parenting and how non-parents can be allies in activist movements. For more information, check out the blog dontleaveyourfriendsbehind.wordpress.com.

And most recently on Adamant Eve, Laura has the news with information about the Coalition for a Nuclear Free Alberta, Sam brought us an awesome feature, an interview with Esther Kane, author of It’s Not About the Food: A Women’s Guide to Finding Peace with Food and Our Bodies about eating disorders and body image, and Jocelyn had a powerful critique of the recent article in the Edmonton Journal bemoaning the fact that women have begun to out-number men in universities, but failing to mention that women’s enrollment drops in advanced degree programs, women hold few top positions, and women still earn 30 less than men.

Solicitation Laws on Adamant Eve

Listen tonight at 5:30 for an all new Adamant Eve! Tune in to CJSR 88.5 FM or listen online at www.cjsr.com.

This week on Adamant Eve, Ashley interviews Stephanie Laskoski. In 2007, Laskoski received the Roger S. Smith Undergraduate Student Researcher Award and decided to use the award to create a documentary and  research project on prostitution and the laws surrounding soliciting.

Laura Collison brings us the news this week with a story about a new law in Quebec, Bill 34, which will potentially limit access to abortion in the province. The bill has been met with a lot of resistance from the public and the medical community and now the government is rethinking it.

Bringing the show to a close is Sam with Radio Eve. This week she brings us the song African Pride by Souljah Fyah.

Sam has also been busy creating news! She will be featured on the national radio program Groundwire. Sam did an excellent piece on the Charter battle undertaken by women ski jumpers wanting to be included in the 2010 Olympics. Congratulations, Sam!
