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 in Blyth, Ontario and a co-op station in Nelson, BC as well as a conversation with two researchers from the Caribbean islands of Curaçao and Aruba studying journalism practices in small island settings.

S3E11-Rural and island responses to COVID-19
43:43Geography matters. And when it comes to pandemics such as this COVID-19 one that we find ourselves in the middle of, how we respond to pandemics is very much influenced by geography. That curiosity about geographically distinct responses to COVID-19 pandemic is very much behind two research projects we are going to talk about today. The first one was initiated by The Canadian Rural Revitalization Foundation. It looked at rural responses to the pandemic in Canada. The second project was initiated at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow and it looked at how small islands around the world responded to COVID19 pandemic. The guests today in order of appearance are: Dr. Sarah Minnes, the current President of the Canadian Rural Revitalization Foundation and a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Conservation of Change Lab at the University of Guelph. Dr. Sean Markey is a professor and certified planner with the School of Resource and Environmental Management at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver. Ashleigh Weeden is a PhD candidate in the School of Environmental Design & Rural Development at the University of Guelph. Dr. Francesco Sindico is the Co-Director of the Strathclyde Centre for Environmental Law and Governance at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow. He leads the project on island responses to Covid-19 with data from islands in 36 countries around the world. http://crrf.ca/covid19/ https://www.strath.ac.uk/research/strathclydecentreenvironmentallawgovernance/ourwork/research/labsincubators/eilean/islandsandcovid-19/
S3E10 - Rural Trauma
34:33This episode of Rural Routes features Dr. Kathleen Kevany from the Faculty of Agriculture at Dalhousie University in Truro, Nova Scotia. She is the director of the Rural Research Collaborative and a licensed psychotherapist who studies community development, community well-being and social change. We reached out to Dr. Kevany in the aftermath of a mass shooting in rural Nova Scotia to help us understand the impacts such traumatic events have on rural regions and communities and what we can do to help us get through such difficult events. Dr. Kevany also shared some of the resources available to rural communities and especially those affected by the recent events. **Victim Services** Serving: East Hants, Colchester, Cumberland, Pictou & Antigonish Counties 290 West River Road P.O.

S3E9-The Future of Rural Work
56:09This episode features a panel discussion on the future of rural work recorded at the 2019 Canadian Rural Revitalization foundation and North Atlantic Forum Conference in St. John's, Newfoundland.
57:21Bill Reimer, Brian Dabson, and Zita Cobb made for a stellar opening panel of the 2019 Canadian Rural Revitalization Foundation conference this past October in St. John's at Memorial University's Signal Hill Campus. They dived deep into the issues of rural-urban interaction and possibilities of a healthier and more respectful relationship.
S3E7-Rural Innovation in Ireland
35:51A growing population, opportunities in a variety of industries and sectors, focus on experience and food, and a drive to find new and better ways of doing just about anything? If you think this describes a trendy metropolis, think again. Rural Ireland is creating a range of innovative rural development strategies that bring together residents, industry, civil sector and academic institutions on projects that range from implementation of broadband internet access, to agro-tourism, to intellectual capital vouchers. In this episode of Rural Routes you'll hear from Dr. Felicity Kelliher at the Waterford Institute of Technology on rural innovation in Ireland. The Rural Routes team at the Harris Centre also needs your help. We are conducting an evaluation of the show and we would very much appreciate if you could fill out the survey at the link below. It will help us understand how we can make Rural Routes better.

S3E6-Social enterprise and community development
46:45Social enterprises are increasingly a tool in the community development toolbox. In November 2018, Drs. Natalie Slawinski and Blair Winsor from the Faculty of Business Administration at Memorial University of Newfoundland and the Harris Centre organized a workshop and a public forum on Fogo Island to present the final results of a research project on the role of social enterprises in community development. Using the excerpts from that event and the conversation in the studio with Dr. John Schouten, Canada Research Chair in Social Enterprise, and Kimberly Orren, director of Fishing for Success, this episode is your primer on the role social enterprises could play in rural development.

S3E4 - Islands And Their Universities
51:46Islands 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. For this episode of Rural Routes we bring you a conversation between scholars and administrators at the University of Corsica, the University of Prince Edward Island, the University of La Laguna on Canary Islands, the University of Highlands and Islands from Scotland and Memorial University of Newfoundland. We talked about the role of universities in predominantly rural island environments and the innovative ways in which they connect to the islands and islanders they serve.

S3E3 - The Country Mouse And The City Mouse
36:37Everybody knows the old story of the Country Mouse and the City Mouse. In this episode of Rural Routes, Dr. David Freshwater of University of Kentucky and Dr. Kevin Morgan from the University of Wales suggest we better develop some new ways of understanding the differences, and dependencies, between rural and urban populations. In the age of globalization, climate change, and just-in-time deliveries, what do rural and urban need, want, and expect from each other? Our guests both have incredible knowledge and experience, and you might even laugh a couple of times too.
