What is Cited?
Cited is a documentary radio show about ideas that change the world, sometimes in troubling ways. Each week we tell stories about higher education and research; the birth, life and death of academic ideas; and expertise–who has it, what are they doing with it, and what are its limits?
- Listen to Acey Rowe, host of CBC’s The Doc Project, interview Cited hosts Sam Fenn and Gordon Katic telling exciting stories about academic research.
Our work has played nationally on the CBC Radio shows The Doc Project and Podcast Playlist as well as on NPR-affiliate station KUOW and over 100 campus and community radio stations across North America. We have won national radio awards in Canada for three consecutive years.
In the 2016/2017 season (September to May) we will air weekly interviews with academic researchers, as well as news and analysis about higher education and radio documentaries produced in partnership with media partners and research institutes. You can read more about our method, our partners, and our funding here.
When does Cited air?
We post our podcast on iTunes every Thursday. We also air on terrestrial radio at CiTR 101.9FM in Vancouver, CJSF 90.1FM in Burnaby, and CKDU 88.1FM in Halifax. If you like our program and you don’t live in one of those three cities, you should tell your local campus or community radio station to air Cited (we’ll give it to them for free!).
Who makes Cited?
Our leadership team includes Allen Sens (principal investor), Kathryn Gretsinger, Amanda Cooper, and Philip Savage. We are also advised and supported by faculty at the Michael Smith Laboratories, including Dave Ng and Joanne Alison Fox. Our funding comes from UBC and by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
We produce the program out of the Michael Smith Laboratories at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver.
