"We Are Strong Podcast"

Published: March 4th, 2022

At it’s inception, We Are Strong began as a BIPOC youth-led podcast that aimed to address the issue of Human Trafficking within our communities. Previously, we did this by initiating an open and honest conversation about the topic by unravelling the layers of shame and stigma associated with violence against women, girls, trans and 2-spirited people. Recently, the theme of We Are Strong has transitioned. As youth and youth managers, we decided to dive deeper into topics affecting youth specifically. By highlighting the voices of community, we hope to address and reflect on the systemic issues that we, as BIPOC youth, resist against every day. Moreso, we hope to amplify the voices of other youth and youth leaders who empower youth to achieve their full potential, uplifting themselves and their communities along the way. We Are Strong aims to embark on a ​journey of learning, knowledge sharing, and rupturing stigma through our conversations with dynamic community members who work both personally and professionally to embolden BIPOC youth in Toronto to become the leaders we know they can be. We Are Strong is safety, it is empowerment, and it is resistance.

Radio Regent consists of numerous programmers that conduct their own radio shows on a weekly basis.

Topics vary from program to program; however, each offers something exciting and unique. In each issue of the Buzz we highlight community programmers to provide a sense of the "who" behind Radio Regent.

In this issue of the Buzz we feature radio host, journalist, storyteller and activist, Murphy Browne.


Buzz: Tell us a little about your cultural background?

Browne
: I am an African woman who was born in South America. I grew up in an African centred community where the elders told stories about our African ancestors and our culture before the Maafa (African Holocaust.) My elders were Pan-Africanists and that has greatly influenced every area of my life, has informed my activism, storytelling etc.,

Buzz: Besides Radio Regent, what other activities or community groups are you involved in?

Browne

I am an active blogger at “Words From Murphy Browne.” I was very active in various groups including the Black Action Defense Committee (BADC,) The Organization of Parents of Black Children (OPBC) Girl Guides of Canada as a Guider and Diversity Awareness Trainer.

Buzz:
What first inspired you to get into radio?

Brown: I was inspired to become involved in radio when I was invited to co-host on Radioactive Feminism at CKLN 88.1 FM, by Oriel Varga who was a member of the collective. In 1998 I began co-hosting Radioactive Feminism on Sunday mornings as part of a collective of women, did a short stint as co-host of The Unheard Voice of the African Woman and began hosting Tuesday Word of Mouth in August 2004.
