Our Shows

Grounded Futures

The second and third seasons of the Grounded Futures Show are hosted by carla joy bergman and Uilliam Joy.

Uilliam and carla discuss topics that are important to our collective survival and thrival… They also dig into ways youth (and anyone really) can gain new skills to thrive amid current and ongoing disasters. The third season’s meta theme is all about Trust, trust in ourselves, trust in our work and art, and trust in each other. The show will take a deep dive on these issues, and be in conversations with incredible guests. We are a Gen-X and a Gen-Z, and we are keen on tearing down the walls between generations together and on our show!

The music for our show is by Sour Gout.

Thrivistance: when anyone, but especially kids find ways to thrive through acts of resistance.

Mentorship in Motion is a Grounded Futures audio series that delves into the relationships between mentors and mentees. Through storytelling and conversation, co-hosts Melissa Sharp and Jamie-Leigh Gonzales and their guests will explore the dynamics of mentorship — in particular how women, gender non-conforming folks, and folks of colour use mentorship relationships to break into their fields.

Curation and production for Mentorship in Motion is supported by Peer Mentees (and guest hosts!) Rebecca Peng and Nadya Geta

Resonant Rest

Resonant Rest is a Grounded Futures podcast series about musicians and creative practice, rest, sustenance, dreams, and community. Through a series of conversations, we will explore these topics with musicians living on stolen Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and xwməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam) lands (so-called Vancouver). We are interested in collective learning, starting conversations that create real change, and imagining futures where everyone can thrive.

Resonant Rest is hosted by Grounded Futures’ Solo Together Podcast Resident, Oceaan Pendharkar.


Still Walking, Still Waking

There are forks in the road, but they all lead us home – to the fight, to the build.

Silver Threads: Still Walking, Still Waking, is hosted by carla bergman and Eleanor Goldfield. They interview long term organizers and radicals about their watershed moments, what they have learned along the way, and how they maintain their hope on this path; dreaming and building emergent worlds for a present and future that is anchored in justice and freedom for all.
