New tallest building? Plus, Rock the Shores and trampolines

20:40 – 37:47: The regulars, Corey Polkinghorne and James Ball, discuss the temporary demise of the “Rock the Shores” music festival in Colwood. Are we a victim of an over-saturation of music festivals? Plus get an update on  a new trampoline park in Esquimalt and a new burger joint downtown.

37:47 – 44:38: Netflix reviews… this week we take on “Riverdale.”

Plus, regular guests Corey and James review the recent Elton John concert, which leads to a conundrum surrounding a spare ticket.
