If you love Vancouver Island you need to read this new book

This week on the V.I.A. Podcast we’ve got an interview with Jack Knox. He’s a columnist of the Times Colonist (a sister publication of ours) and the author of three books about Vancouver Island.

Bob interviews him at the newspaper’s office in Victoria, when Jack then reads a story from his latest book, ‘On The Rocks’, which has a number of stories about eclectic Vancouver Islanders. This particular chapter he reads is about a prisoner of war who survived the bombing at Nagasaki, who then went on to become on of British Columbia’s most generous philanthropists.

On either end of the interview, Lindsay and Bob talk about some things happening in Vancouver, as well as some of their favourite things about visiting B.C.’s capital city.
