VREP #246 | A Complete Guide to Vancouver's Peat Bog Areas with Jeff Langford
Did you know much of Vancouver used to be swamp land? Perhaps that accounts for a couple of things: first, our city's brutal rat problem which rivals New York City on a per capita basis and, second, the uneven streets, sidewalks and even homes that form part of our neighbourhoods.

VREP #245 | Did Covid-19 Kill Vancouver? with Tiffany Chu
Does the global pandemic signal the death knell for global cities like Vancouver? The short answer is that may be the wrong question. The CEO of Remix, Tiffany Chu, sits down with Adam & Matt to discuss why the death of the city has been greatly exaggerated and instead outlines a decidedly positive take on the impact of Covid-19: the rise of the neighborhood centre. The re-focus on neighborhoods, with "slow streets," "streateries," and bike and pedestrian networks has supercharged the somewhat stalled desire for change among planners looking to make urban spaces more livable and resilient. The future is here if you know how to look!
