There’s so much we can all learn, if we just talk to each other. Here’s CHSR’s line-up of spoken word shows, aimed at entertaining, informing and engaging you.

Shows marked with a icon are produced within the Capital region. If you’re interested in producing your own show, consider volunteering at the station. It’s fun and you’ll get a chance to grow your ability to tell the world things you think it should know!
