The Story

PolitiCoast is a politics podcast from the West Coast. We cover Vancouver, British Columbia, Canadian and some international politics from a BC lens.

PolitiCoast was launched in October 2016 by Ian Bushfield & Scott de Lange Boom, just two guys who liked talking politics in the pub. Ian edits and produces the show.

Startup costs came out of Ian & Scott’s pockets and we’re now supported by our generous Patrons (although we both have full-time jobs to pay our bills). You can also make a one-time donation through PayPal.
