A long cherished objective of GMCR is creating a way that individuals can speak to the community at large. It is part of what we mean when we say that GMCR offers

A Voice & A Choice

Now that we offer Hearing Voices, we hope that it serves the needs of not only the individuals or groups that speak but those who listen and the entire community in the sense that it contributes to the “marketplace of ideas.”

You are invited to submit short commentaries on a range of issues.

Due to the irregularity of submissions, Hearing Voices does not presently have a fixed timeslot. Thus – though they may be time sensitive – circumstance may not allow advance notice of their broadcast. But as time and humane (! We can always hope…) resources allow, their broadcast times may be noted – and podcasts of their submissions will be archived for all to listen to at their convenience – on their respective pages..

The opinions expressed are those of the speakers – and not necessarily those of GMCR. We encourage our listeners to be thoughtful and clear in their presentations and we hope that they will expand and enhance community dialogue. Think of Hearing Voices as you would for Letters to the Editor or the Opinion pages in typical news outlets. Submissions are subject to GMCR’s Editorial Policy – which includes our discretion – regarding submissions.

If you wish to address an issue, please submit your request using this form…
