Tomorrow is International Womxn's Day - perhaps one of my (Ola) favourite days of the year - but in 2018, it feels different. Why not make it International Womxn's Year?
On Thursday, March 8th, Toronto pop-up radio station, Istolethesoul FM launched their second broadcast with a special edition. It's a 12-hour broadcast from 12 pm NOON to 12 am ET, featuring an all-womxn lineup of DJs, hosts, podcasters and creatives from our beautiful city. Istolethesoul FM is both DIY and collaborative, and proves that everyone has a seat at the table. It's an incredible platform founded by friends of the show, Jayemkayem and Paul Chin, who are bringing an innovative approach to radio, while shining a light on the underdogs (like us!). Much like BanTOR Radio's MO of Sonic Diversity & Storytelling, their #IWD2018 edition is inclusive and a clear example of how we can be allies as collectives in the city, and to each other, as we #PushForProgress on a global scale.
BanTOR Radio is honoured to be a part of this lineup, where we'll be hosting an interview with local badass and innovator, Rebeka Dawn, founder of Toronto's popular event series, COZY and FUCK IT. Can't tell you what we'll be discussing, so you'll just have to tune it at 9:00 pm ET, or stop by the DAIS studio for a live listen. The entire lineup is diverse and not to be missed - see all details below.
Istolethesoul is also hosting a drive for Sistering TO, where they will be collecting hygiene products, travel-sized toiletries and unused/unopened makeup. So, take that trip to Shopper's or dig through your closet for that Sephora sample you don't need! Someone else truly does.
Want to attend and learn more? Tune in on Thursday, March 8 at 12 pm NOON ET at Istolethesoul.com, and RSVP on Facebook here.
DAIS is located at 1196 Queen Street West. Drop by...and don't forget those donations!
