Welcome. In this episode we bring you unreported local surprises and an exclusive sit-down with Shakey Graves.

[37:50] The Goldfish Escapades pitches in as we bring listeners to the Seaplane Base grounds in Ukee for Otalith Music Festival. Hope you get a true reflection of what has become the best party of the year.

[47:08] Listen to our backstage interview with Shakey Graves (@shakey-graves-official), following an utterly rousing performance. Alejandro Rose-Garcia talks about how balls-to-the-wall the gig turned out to be. Plus he divulges how intensely these horizons have impacted him, and shouts out my friend Rachel for an epic whale-watching tour(www.spy-hop.com/).

“The whole experience has kind of been surreal,” he said. “This was just a little bit more intense than I was expecting.”

[19:07] Is our hyper-tourismified resort municipality of Tofino, B.C. ready for real investment and development beyond catering to the masses passing though over the summer months? One consultant says “No” and didn’t mince words. We’ve got the skinny on it, as well as the reaction of local community leaders.

Interesting this comes out right as a pair of NHL players who’ve worn the Vancouver Canucks orca on their chest came together to purchase the main marina and bar in town. Will our caller get the trivia question about it right?
