We just couldn’t help ourselves and did a deep dive into Blockchain technology and Cryptocurrency related issues with Kyle Mackenzie, Metrics Chartered Professional Accounting Partner and Global expert on Cryptocurrency and blockchain technology.
Well, we last interviewed Adam Olsen in Jan - 2015 - (http://johnpaulandmic.ca/e/adam-olsen-interim-leader-bc-green-party/)...clearly the man knows how to dress! So a few things have changed...have a listen to Adam Olsen - MLA talk about "recent" activities...LOL...this interview was conducted at the leg before the 2pm announcement between the Green & NDP parties.
Well...after several decades of inactivity...Paul Holmes & I slapped together a podcast...it appears and feels like we'll be getting off the couch & start regular podcasting again...it also appears that months of inactivity & massive aging has facilitated a complete lack of inhibition...so listen today for the chaos, tomfoolery and general disruptiveness that we call the John, Paul and Mic podcast...anyways...
GREAT discussion about next week's (May 4th-5th) Social Media Camp...Paul Holmes is co-founder of Canada's Premier Social Media Conference
we focus on the seemingly absolute lack of civility, ethics, morality in today's social media discourse...trolling...bots...meanness, anger...
Both Paul Holmes and Kalen Harris represent the finest of an emergent new digital media trend that I will characterize as the "Community Commentator". Good politics and fair, objective public policy are manifestly the result of robust and balanced community input and dialogue. John Paul & Mic intend to feature these community connectors and the profoundly human experience that they represent.
Today Kalen, Paul & I chat about Social Media content and we try to figure out why it"generally" turns into such a mean and offensive sandbox in which to play in. Plus we talk about a bunch of other stuff.
Well, it's been a while since our last broadcast...we've both been busy...nonetheless, missed doing the broadcast with Paul...so we're gonna try hard to get back to once a month...today's JPM is all about Social Media Camp 2016, an extra-ordinarily successful digital media conference in beautiful Victoria, BC. Paul is co-founder...
Paul sits down with Chad Moats, proprietor of Raven Herbal, one of the many medical cannabis dispensaries that's opened recently in Victoria.
The conversation meanders around current and historical marijuana and drug laws in Canada, the U.S. and abroad. They also chat about the state of affairs in Canada today, particularly around the impending end to prohibition, and all the legal, moral and societal complexities involved with these changes.
"Weed be remiss not to do an episode about this." -- Paul's pun
John and Paul are hosting a LIVE election night broadcast at 7:00pm on Monday, October 19th. This will NOT be on this channel, but through a social platform TBD (Livestream, YouTube or the like). Please hit up our Facebook or Twitter to find information about where to tune in.
If you like this post, we'll update it with details once they are available:
Paul was delighted to finally host a full contingency of all the party points of view on this week's podcast. Other than Elections Canada-related issues (and accusations involving tinfoil hat wearing), most of the discussion was around the Vancouver Island ridings, with lots of great info and points of view that every Vancouver Island voter should find helpful, with a dash of inside baseball to make it a bit more fun.
Thanks to our guests:
Bruce Hallsor, Conservative activist
Sheldon Kitzul, NDP activist
Sonia Théroux, Green activist and Campaign Co-Chair for Jo-Ann Roberts, Victoria
Andrew Reeve, Liberal activist and Campaign Manager for Luke Krayenhoff, Cowichan-Malahat-Langford
