We’re not alone!

People’s Health Radio will be one year old in September.  We’ve got 20 hours of back episodes up online, and we’ve covered a really wide variety of topics… from fat oppression, to Haiti solidarity, to homeopathy, we’re nothing if not eclectic!  And we’re still learning more with every episode (for example, we’ll never again record in a windy area without a sock over our microphone…)

One exciting thing about being involved in the radio show has been learning about other bloggers and podcasters who are also passionate about health and social justice.   We’re not the only ones!

Three of the health justice blogs and podcasts that I follow are:

* http://globalhealthequity.blogspot.com – this blog is written by three medical students in Eastern Canada and focuses on examples of primary health care and the “distribution and determinants of health” particularly in the global south.
* http://healthjusticeradio.wordpress.com – This is the online home of Health Justice Radio – a weekly radio show that airs on CFMU (Community Radio in Hamilton, Ontario).  Their show airs Monday afternoons – if you’re keeping track, that means three hours week you can tune into Canadian made radio on the topic of health and social justice!
* http://www.healthonearth.net/ The online home of Health on Earth – a weekly global health radio show produced by students of McGill’s faculty of Medicine and Nursing.  Airs Wednesday evenings.
We all have our own unique perspectives and interests, and there is so much to learn.   As I learn of more blogs and podcasts I’ll be sure to add them to this page.

  1. Wow, I just discovered People’s Health Radio and enjoyed the show (musician health) so much that I came here right away — and then saw this shout-out to Health on Earth, a show I help produce in Montreal! And to Health Justice Radio, run by a friend and former radio co-host now at McMaster. Wonderful connections, and an honour to be in such illustrious (and industrious) company. Do feel free to get in touch if you ever want to collaborate on a show, or trade audio. And keep up the great work!

  2. Hi Sasha,

    Thank you so much for your comment!

    PHR has been thinking about proposing a collaboration with you and other Canadian health justice radio shows to correspond with the anniversary of the signing of Alma Ata (September 15)… not sure what it would look like, but I’m sure between all of us we could come up with something. We’ll be in touch.

  3. Sounds great! Do be in touch, I agree that there’s lots of potential there.
