Recently frustrated with far too many issues not getting the coverage needed in traditional and large media outlets serving the province of BC, I tossed out the idea of doing a weekly podcast to friends and followers on twitters and facebook – to say the response was incredibly positive would be an understatement!
I’m not alone in looking to start that venture for the fall-at this point it’s not certain whether I will be doing the podcast as part of a collective or on my own strictly for this site, but stay tuned over the summer as details are worked out behind the scenes. Many readers were thrilled at the thought of having something they could download and listen to while they worked or took part in other activities and I think the time is ripe for this kind of expansion. So this is the first bit of news for you!
Second, when I tossed that idea out on social media, an opportunity knocked that allows for greater exposure and exploration of the issues and of my work here, as we head into BC Election 2017.
After a week of working out the details,I’d like to invite you to listen to CKNW every Wednesday morning from 9am to 9:30am, as Martyn Brown and I join host Jon McComb as panelists on a new segment dedicated to BC politics.
There is no contractual obligation for this segment to avoid any conflict with the independent work I do here or anywhere else, but it does open the door to engage new readers, cross promote and expand the audience for this blog and others. If you aren’t local to Metro Vancouver, you can listen online at http://www.cknw.com/
Simple click on the Listen Live button at the link above to hear the segment, and I would love to hear your reactions as we ease into this new segment starting tomorrow, Wednesday June 29th!
