Francis Plourde (he/him) is an award-winning journalist from Quebec. He co-produced the podcast Recall: How to Start a Revolution on the rise and fall of the FLQ, Quebec’s radical movement of the sixties. Since Francis joined Radio-Canada in 2007, he’s worked across the country - mostly in French, sometimes in English. His work has appeared on investigative programs such as CBC's acclaimed series, The Fifth Estate. Plourde is the host and producer of CBC Podcasts The Village: The Montreal Murders.

The Village: The Montreal Murders - in the early 1990s, as AIDS tightens its grip on major cities around the world, the relative safety of Montreal’s nightlife becomes a magnet for gay men. But when they start turning up dead in hotel rooms, beaten lifeless in city parks, and violently murdered in their own homes, the queer community has more to fear than the disease. While the city’s police force dithers over the presence of a serial killer, a group of queer activists starts making connections, and rises up to start a movement that would end up changing thousands of lives. Hosted by Francis Plourde. *This season, Radio-Canada is producing a sister podcast in French, titled Le Village hosted by Marie-Eve Tremblay.


Martina Petric (she/her) is a Chilean singer, songwriter and producer. In 2018 she released her first solo album “VELVET” which led her to win Best New Artist for the Indigo Awards (2018) and be nominated for the Pulsar Awards (2019) in the same category. Martina has continued to release material since then, standing out as an active artist in the female and LGBTIQ+ scene. She’s currently living in Barcelona and preparing her new EP.

Percy Richter (he/him) Born in Chile and now living in London, Percy Richter has been mesmerizing audiences with his powerful lyrics and chilled pop, finally ready to take centre stage and leave his mark on this industry.
