The Vancouver Podcast Festival lives on virtually, and this year’s lineup has something for everyone: think cultural drama, secret CIA experiments, workshops, and politics. On November 20 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., Sandy Hudson and Nora Loreto (of Sandy and Nora Talk Politics) will be chatting about the impact of—you guessed it—the U.S. election here at home.
This livestreamed show is exactly what it sounds like: Craigslist personal ads set to music. If you’ve taken a look at the personals, you know they’re full of quirky characters—and if you haven’t given that section a look-see, you’re a liar.

Food for thought.
You know the ones! St. Paul’s Foundation’s Lights of Hope are making downtown a little brighter this Thursday. The 4,000 feet of lights marks the beginning of the hospital’s annual fundraising campaign. There’s a virtual event at 6:00 p.m. with musical performances by Treble 5 Music and the Vancouver Bach Choir (and of course, an early visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus)—and you can walk by or donate anytime.
2020 marks the 20th annual Chutzpah! Festival, and they’re serving up a healthy (virtual) heap of comedy, music, theatre and dance to keep your calendar full. Opening the festival from straight out of Ottawa is Ben Caplan, the folk-rock singer-songwriter who’s been pulling off quarantine hair since before it was mainstream—that’s not a dig, we love it.
