This week on the Vancouver Is Awesome podcast we sit down with music reporter/podcaster/author Andrea Warner to talk about her latest book, Buffy Saint-Marie: The Authorized Biography.

We discuss why there are countless books about other A-list musicians in Canada, and why Sainte-Marie has been left behind. Until now.

We also chat about the mayoral debate V.I.A. co-presented, the campfire ban being lifted, a cute vintage bus that’s been rolling around Vancouver and more.
