For those of you in rural or northern communities, or wherever you are for that matter, please note this ongoing series of podcasts.

http://ruralroutespodcasts.com/?cat=206 *

Many of these could be the starting point for community conversations held at or facilitated by local libraries.

Here are summaries of three recent episodes:

  1. Rural Media:

“Media industry is in trouble. For a long time now it has been shedding jobs and converging into ever larger corporate entities where profits outweigh any residual sense of responsibility to small communities for whom a local paper is often a necessity. Are there solutions? In this episode we will bring you interviews with journalists working a community owned paper . . .” **

  1. Islands and their universities:

“Islands are often perceived as being at a disadvantage compared to their mainland counterparts. And sure, there are some tough issues that are at least somewhat unique to islands. However, there is also plenty of evidence of the potential for unique successes, partially because island geographies necessitate doing things a little differently. Universities located on islands tend to have a different relationship with their communities, often working together to find new, appropriate ways of approaching those old island challenges. . .” **

  1. Community First Tourism Development

“Developing rural tourism is a complicated process fraught with pitfalls, but, when done right, it provides economic and social benefits to rural communities. In this episode we talk to researchers and practitioners about tourism development in Newfoundland and Labrador, Scotland, Denmark, Alberta, and BC. . .”**

*Rural Routes is a Leslie Harris Centre of Regional Policy and Development and Canadian Rural Revitalization Foundation initiative.

This show is supported through a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada Connection grant.
