This week on the V.I.A. Podcast we keep it hyper local by bringing back one of our favourite segments, a Bob versus Lindsay Vancouver battle, hosted by our very own Adam Nanji.
Public marketplaces, the emotional appeal of quirky hot dogs, beloved Vancouver summer traditions, that thing when you go to White Spot and you eat in your car, fancy coffee culture and more are on the table this time around. Believe it or not, this Vancouver opinion-off actually has a winner. You gotta listen to find out why, though!
Also on the topics list this week are a couple of items we covered about animals in the water, like the shark that was spotted off Kits Beach, and the newborn harbour seal rescued in Boundary Bay. Plus we discuss the story about phoney “Hot Dog Water” (heard ’round the world!) and the B.C. Lions fan who kinda almost sorta streaked on the field and got tackled by a player.
It’s a lot…but it’s a lot of fun!
