We were just going to call this “30. The Boring Episode”, but then some of you, like us, have an interest in B.C. and municipal politics. So we’ve split this out, and that’s why you’re getting not one but TWO episodes on the same day! And they are a little shorter than normal, for those of you from Coquitlam requesting that.
In a very civic minded Episode 30, the Shed Dogs attempt to wrestle to the ground and subdue the amorphous mass that is the Electoral Reform Referendum - what is it, what might it mean, how might it work, what did we look at? As if that weren’t exciting enough, we then extend our longest-ever political conversation to review how we did at the recent municipal elections, talking about how well our votes scored and how the process went in OUR municipalities. And before all that, we consider what constitutes a good podcast length.
Please note: this week RJ explains that you can navigate our episodes using chapters with most podcast apps. However, Apple Podcasts only added chapter capability for our format in iOS 12. So if you can’t see the chapters yet, maybe it’s because you haven’t upgraded yet.
