Urbanist Matt Hern in conversation with author and comedian Charlie Demers In 2011, Simon Fraser University?s Department of History hosted a lecture series, Think you know Vancouver? Think Again. On January 27th, local authors Matt Hern and Charlie Demers addressed the question of whether Vancouver, as it is often branded, is indeed the best place on earth. Their humorous discussion provides a critical take on Vancouver, its history (or perceived lack of history), and why we need to think about Vancouver with a bit more honesty. In a March podcast, we heard from local author and comedian Charlie Demers. In this podcast, Matt Hern provides a short commentary on Vancouver and then Charlie Demers joins him in discussion.
