http://thunderradio.mfnerc.com/

Thunder Radio is an online podcast channel of the Manitoba First Nations Education Resource Centre that is focused on First Nations education in Manitoba and in Canada as a whole.  There are currently 16 episodes on the online channel, covering topics including Indigenous Literature, Indigenous Knowledge, and Virtual Learning on Reserves.  This resource provides glimpses into current topics in Indigenous education through the eyes of Indigenous educators, students, and other contributors.  The list of official podcast followers is online, so there is also the potential for listeners to connect with one another across communities.  This oral medium is important for stimulating discussion regardless of time and place, enabling listeners to engage with the information as if they were being told a story or conversing with someone right in front of them.
