Meagan Perry got her start broadcasting over a high school intercom in northern Alberta before spending a decade in campus/community radio. She moved on to Toronto and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation where she spent six years directing and story producing for CBC Radio’s As It Happens and Definitely Not The Opera. After heading back North for a position at the Yukon News, she spearheaded a program focused on reporting from remote communities for the independent newspaper.
As a senior communications officer with Indian and Northern Affairs Canada, she was supervising editor for Visions North: Talking about Yukon Land Claims, a tripartite Federal, Territorial, and First Nations government publication focused on educating the public about Land Claims and Aboriginal Self-Government in the Yukon. She also coordinated communications workshops and product development for First Nation government communicators.
Perry is the executive director of podcasts for rabble.ca, which hosts Canada’s first and largest curated network of audio producers. The network is home to some of Canada’s most innovative and challenging audio productions. Her documentaries and audio work continue to be featured on public broadcasters around the world including BBC, CBC, NPR, and RTE.

Mary Pearson – transcription
Mary Pearson is director of Two Main, a recording and transcription service with offices in Canada and UK. She is an occasional willing collaborator with MAP, bashing out audio transcripts to guide edits. Long resident in London, England but hailing originally from the mighty metropolis of Medicine Hat.
Mary has worked with Société Internationale de Télécommunications Aéronautiques, and was the creator, editor, and publisher of South Korea’s Exit Magazine. She was a visiting lecturer at Dong-A University.
Mary, along with Meagan, is living proof that most folks from Alberta are rather nice, not terribly rednecked, and don’t, by and large, involuntarily salivate at the mention of petroleum.
