Episode 1 of the Vancouver Is Awesome Podcast


Co-producers/hosts Lindsay William-Ross and Bob Kronbauer

We’ve launched a podcast! Aptly entitled Vancouver Is Awesome, it’s hosted by V.I.A. Senior Writer Lindsay William-Ross and me, Bob Kronbauer.

Each week we’ll bring you insights and analysis on things happening in your city that we think you should know about. We’ll talk with celebrities, authors, reporters and other people doing awesome things here. We hope to provide you with inspiration and the odd smile, connecting you to Vancouver.

We’ve kicked things off today with a half hour show looking at the hidden polyamory community in this city (it’s like polygamy, but different), as well as some recommendations of places and things you should check out locally in the coming week.
