Rank #9: Ep 150: Chocolate milk is good live show

Podcast cover
Read more

We’ve made it to 150 episodes!

Thanks to everyone who’s listened, shared and donated to help make this show what it is. Special thanks as well to BC Today for their continued support.

For our 150th live show, we recorded with Nicola Spurling and Zoe Ferry at Creative Coworkers in Vancouver. We look back at the state of the BC Government after two years and then look ahead to how the election is shaping up.

And as Ian announced in the show: He’s expecting a baby in September! Which means he’ll be taking a hiatus for a few weeks but Scott will keep the ship going with some guest cohosts. It also means your support is more important then ever to help keep the show going. Our goal is to contract out a lot of our editing and production to let us focus on producing more and better content. So it’s never been more important to sign up to support the show on Patreon.

Speed cameras are now active at five intersections across Metro Vancouver and another 30 are on the way. Should the federal election be moved to accommodate a Jewish holiday? And the province passes the buck to the federal government to crackdown on conversion therapy.

Final reminder: Our live show is next Thursday, August 8, 2019.

Shout out to our beer sponsor: Strange Fellows.

And our guests: Former BC Green candidate Nicola Spurling and Majority of BC contributor Zoe Ferry.
