Focused Conversations

Join Host Kim Slater in a Vital Podcast

In 2019, Whistler’s Vital Signs introduced the Vital Café concept which has invited community members to toss the small talk and break into conversations about the BIG issues affecting our community — but in a worldwide context.

Whistler’s Vital Podcast was born of the idea that, whether you were able to join the community at the table or not, you could still be a part of that conversation.

Each podcast is a focused conversation with podcast host Kim Slater and a presenter from each Vital Café topic.

Episode 1: Thinking Like A Mountain with Guest Leslie Anthony

Episode 2: No Community Without Learning, No Learning Without Community

Episode 3: Yes, There IS Poverty in Whistler with Sara Jennings

Episode 4: Turning Climate Change into A Climate Of Change With Mike Douglas And Claire Ruddy

Episode 5: Whistler, Do We Consume Too Much? With Guest Sue Maxwell

Episode 6: How Inclusive Is Whistler, Really? With Guest Carole Stretch

Episode 7: How can we fill Whistler’s empty stomachs? with Dawn Johnson

Episode 8: Truth & Reconciliation – Whistler, how engaged are we? with Linda Epp
