Brilliant host; very engaging podcast!

Mo, stay the course, you’re killing it. You are a natural host and interviewer. You’re erudite, kind, diligent, professional, and eloquent. You are getting noticed, make no mistake about that, and it will continue and grow. Trust your instincts because yours are solid, authentic, and honestly earned. Fiona is absolutely right, keep your hopes up for the Trevor Linden interview (and Whitney Cummings)! Both would love it. Bravo!

Keep up the good work.

This Is Vancolour. This is worth subscribing to.

Insightful podcast that delves into various trends in Vancouver through some of its better known politicians, artists, comedians, writers, broadcasters, and personalities.
Host Mo Amir as host has a knack for moving through the interviews typically covering a lot of different subject, but it never feels rushed or that he has any particular agenda, other than a curiosity about people, and some of the issues that are the most talked about subjects and and ideas about the city, and where we’re heading.
Worth your time. And worth your subscription.
