What’s wrong with Mile Zero anyways? Plus, we review “A Long Time Running”

There’s a pitch to change Mile Zero, where Douglas Street (technically the Trans Canada at this point), ends at Dallas Road next to Beacon Hill Park. What are the changes proposed? Why are they being proposed? Let’s dive in through the big orange zero and discuss!

Plus, we review “A Long Time Running,” a documentary about Canadian rock band The Tragically Hip’s final tour in 2016, which heavily features the Victoria show.

Speaker drama in B.C. Politics. Plus, pot shop theories and killer whales

Is this finally the end of the B.C. election saga? The speaker of the legislature is chosen in dramatic fashion (and Ryan gets too excited about it).

Plus, we have a prediction for how legalized marijuana will be sold in B.C., there’s a whale quiz, and trees that decide to discard branches.

What’s up with fish farms? Plus, awkward encounters at B.C. Parks

After a fish farm in the San Juan Islands releases thousands of Atlantic salmon into local waters, we go over the big picture of salmon farming.

Plus, a lively discussion over bridge tolls and awkward human experiences unique to camping in B.C. Parks.

The movie episode

A Johnny Depp movie called “Richard Says Goodbye” has been filming at Hatley Castle, and the latest “Pup Star” movie is shooting downtown. That gets us into our Victoria This Week list of best movies that feature our city.

Also the McKenzie interchange project is delayed, the Commonwealth Games bid seems dead, an Island musical festival gets a new name and new acts, and much more on this week’s show.

What’s the deal with the Commonwealth Games? Plus, birds

We cover Victoria’s attempt to bring the Commonwealth Games to Victoria in 2022, the design for (what could become) downtown’s new tallest building, and… James Ball visits the raptor centre in Duncan and things get weird:


Tall buildings-tiny rooms. Plus, Bob Dylan and Genevieve the Goat

In this week’s show we catch up with the city’s explosive construction and development growth with Mike Kozakowski from Citified.ca, including an update on what’s supposed to be a 30 (now 29) storey building downtown.

Regular guests Corey and James review the Bob Dylan concert in Vancouver and Ryan’s Nature Corner tackles the story of high-tech volunteers who rescue animals… animals like Genevieve the Goat.

Tantrum Etiquette and Army Worms

0:00 – 15:05: Guy yells at a mom and her kids in Langford. Why? Because her three year old threw a tantrum. The story had a happy ending but also caused a lot of discussion about being on both sides of the situation. Special guest Ceara K from 107.3 KOOL FM joins us to discuss tantrum etiquette.

15:05 – 21:26: What ever happened to that casino that was supposed to come downtown?

21:26 – 44:45: The regulars James and Corey discuss camping at Goldstream, Glow on Netflix, and a new edition of “Ryan’s Nature Corner” that covers army worms.
