A podcast highlighting life in Whistler, including interviews with locals, expats and transients

We had such a blast with him last time that we thought a sequel was in order. Feet Banks returns to the studio this week to talk all things summer and movies. With this week marking his 12th anniversary as movie reviewer for the Pique Newsmagazine we thought it would be fitting to discuss the highlights and lowlights of the movie releases this summer. Join us as we celebrate Robin Williams' career, the Pemberton and Squamish Valley music festivals and Feet shares an exclusive update on the Heavy Hitting HorrorFest.
