Ryan Price, James Ball and Corey Polkinghorne explore the news of the week… eventually.
Ryan Price, Corey Polkinghorne and James Ball chat about the week’s events… or in this case not really.
This week’s discussion twists and turns through Black Friday and Christmas holiday busyness, the lack of progress on getting something done on the E&N rail line, rescue dogs and beaver facts.
Ryan, James and Corey cover a lot of ground in this week’s chit-chat about news and events in Victoria, B.C.
This week’s topics include: the future of the Juan de Fuca lands past Sooke are a major point of contention, we talk about why; we use Remembrance Day and the 100th Anniversary of Passchendaele to learn about the man whose name adorns Pearkes Rec Centre; the Eagles of Death Metal are coming to town, and…. trying to get our heads around the never ending barrage of sexual misconduct stories in the news.
The gang’s back together for the first time in a while, riffing on the week’s news. We also learn about Sea Lions with a new “nature corner” and hear the latest concert announcements.
Ryan and James are joined by special guest Ceara K from 107.3 KOOL FM for a conversation that’s all over the map.
We recorded this show a few hours after learning that Gord Downie, singer and front man of The Tragically Hip, died of brain cancer at age 53. All of us on the show are life-long fans so we scrapped whatever was planned and dedicated this week’s episode to the memory of this great Canadian.
Victoria This Week theme episode on our city’s ghost stories.
Ian Gibbs, co-host of the “Ghost Story Guys” podcast and author of the book “Victoria’s Most Haunted,” joins Ryan to share stories that, yes, are spooky but that also provide a colourful look at the city’s history.
The new B.C. Government is rolling out a plan to build modular homeless housing in any community that wants it. The Ca[ital Region is poised to jump on board. So, we think it’s time to figure out what the term modular homeless housing even means and why we’re doing it.
Plus, we investigate why our houses are filling with spiders at this time of year, we discuss how this year’s weather reduced the apple crop to the point that Sea Cider is pleading for apples, and we profile Canadian rock band “the Sadies” after their recent show in Victoria.
