On this episode of Your Right to Speak Salvatore and Christopher continue the conversation they started from the previous episode. This episode main focus was on advocacy. Both Salvatore and Christopher share what they have learned in the field and some challenges to advocacy. Let's Raise Awareness Together! 

This conversation with Michael Furdyk and Jennifer Corriero introduces an exciting new pilot partnership between CYC Podcast and Rising Youth (https://www.risingyouth.ca/) a project of TakingItGlobal (https://www.tigweb.org/). Jennifer and Michael introduce  #Rising Youth & TakingItGlobal, speak about some of the projects they support, and why we are doing this collaboration. We also talk about the politics of language when creating podcasts in a multi-lingual country. 
 
Starting in January, CYC Podcast will start doing a French language podcast each month, we will also be doing bilingual podcasts, and will be working towards providing transcripts of the podcasts in at least two languages. By February we will increase our schedule to deliver a podcast every Wednesday, hosted by a variety of people. Salvatore will continue on the 2nd Wednesday of the month and Wolfgang will still be on the last Wednesday. We will be adding new hosts on the 1st, 3rd (and when there are 5 Wednesday’s, the 4th) Wednesday of each month.
 
We are excited about these changes and look forward to developing new, diverse, and engaging conversations in the coming months.
