Meet Harbinger

We're a community of progressive podcasts challenging right-wing and corporate media dominance, in French and English, from coast to coast.

Our cohort of comrades are sharing skills, resources and talent and working collaboratively to build an alternative to corporate and mainstream media. We’re coming together across culture, language and geography in mutual support as we intentionally cultivate a shared vision for a better Canada and a better world.

Harbinger is a registered non-profit coordinated by Executive Director Andre Goulet and a Board of Directors with representation from around the country. We’re also working with the Left journal PASSAGE as a founding partner to build a media ecosystem challenging centrist and far-right narratives and creating space for left and progressive voices in Canadian discourse.  The network is an advertising-free space and we don’t accept commercial or corporate funding. Harbinger depends on the support of listeners like you.

The Harbinger Media Network is home to many of the most widely listened-to shows in Canada, including OUT OF LEFT FIELD in Victoria, Charlie DemersFull of Chit-Chat in Vancouver, and The LB Podcast on North Vancouver Island.

There’s THE ALBERTA ADVANTAGE in Calgary and the socialist film crit show KINO LEFTER and THE PROGRESS REPORT in Edmonton. Nashwa Khan’s HABIBTI PLEASE is in Mississauga and Umair Muhammad‘s OATS FOR BREAKFAST is in Toronto, Christo AivalisLEFT TURN, CANADA is in Kingston and the anti-capitalist sketch comedy of WORK IT is in Hamilton and Paris Marx’s TECH WON’T SAVE US is in St. John’s in Newfoundland & Labrador. The feminist pop culture social critique of LES FICELLES and Rob Rousseau’s 49th PARAHELL are in Montreal and the Paris Podcast Award-winning Indigenous storytelling series FIL ROUGE is in Wendake and Unamen Shipu along with many, many more.

Watch for exciting new projects later this year as Harbinger expands with more shows from around the country including a left economics explainer launching in mid 2021.

THE HARBINGER MEDIA NETWORK is a national community of dozens of podcast creators imagining a better, more just world and we’re just getting started. Thanks for joining us.
