Love This Is Vancolour

I love this show. Mo is an excellent interviewer and he has interesting guests who I enjoy hearing from. Plus, the episodes are a good length to listen to while walking to work.

Excellent insights and intrepid questions

I’ve quite enjoyed learning about different perspectives and issues within the city I was born and raised in. I’m hearing many from many angles, lenses and people I otherwise wouldn’t have known about, at least in in-depth and objective ways. Mo asks sincere and at times, perhaps uncomfortably direct questions, and persists without being obnoxious. A fine balance that he strikes naturally, conversationally.

Why haven’t I found this sooner?

Great podcast - if you live and love the lower mainland then you should partake. Interesting. Fresh and funny.
