V.I.A. podcast Ep 4 – Seafood on the West Coast


We released Episode 4 of the Vancouver Is Awesome podcast today!

Each week Lindsay William-Ross and Bob Kronbauer bring you awesome things happening in your city that we think you should know about. In the middle of each episode we bring in a guest, and our hope is that we provide you with inspiration and smiles, connecting you to Vancouver.

This week’s guest is Ocean Wise Executive Chef Ned Bell, author of the new sustainable seafood cookbook, Lure. We talk about fish farms, the past, present and future of sustainable seafood as well as what to look for when buying fish to cook at home.
