Welcome to Season 2 of the podcast.
I have a go at talking to myself this episode in an attempt to outline the future of the podcast.
The podcast feed seems to me to be a broadcast platform with about 20 hours a month of uploadable audio content. I hope to have different themed shows on the platform and hope that it becomes like a radio station for the village. I briefly discuss the potential shows and possible community involvement. My lonely rambling is followed by a speech given by Corky Evans at the Salmo Watershed Streamkeepers societies 20 year anniversary gala. I hope you enjoy.
Gareth Roberts flips the script and asks Kyle what its been like creating the podcast since he appeared on the first episode.
Episode 10 stirred up quite a bit of engagement since its release. Jen came on the podcast to share her perspective on local politics and her experience on council. She made some important points about the village office and the need for civic engagement.
Thanks for listening and keep the feedback coming. Also there has been a problem with the mailing list so if you want to be notified about new shows please email the podcast directly at PodcastSalmo@gmail.com so I can ad you to the list manually. Thanks again.
I sit down with Diana and talk about how she would like to steer the village if she gets the chance as Mayor. It was an interesting interview, I hope you enjoy.
Jennifer shares some of her story and her hopes for the future of Salmo. I really enjoyed talking with her. Thanks for listening.
I sat down with village council candidate Jacqueline Huser. We talked about her career history and extensive volunteer experience. We spoke about village council and how she hopes to improve communications and transparency from the Village to the public. I enjoyed this conversation and I hope you do to. Enjoy
Susan is running for school board trustee in School District 8, the seat she is running for represents Salmo, Blewett and Taghum.
We had a good conversation about her qualifications in the field of education. Discussed how she came to Salmo in 1996 with her husband and two daughters. I enjoyed talking with Susan and appreciate her coming on the show. Enjoy!
I sit down with the mayor and talk about his time in office, some of the workings of civic governance and his life before moving to Salmo.
