V.I.A. Podcast Ep. 24: Michelle Eliot from CBC’s BC Today


This week on the Vancouver Is Awesome Podcast we bring you a thoughtful conversation about CBC’s revamped weekday radio program, BC Today.

Hosts Bob Kronbauer and Lindsay William-Ross are joined in studio by the call-in show’s host, Michelle Eliot. She talks about the show, her process and where she draws patience from.
