The Coast presents: 25 for 25. A year-by-year audio archive. Through the lens of the city’s alt-weekly, editors Jacob Boon and Tara Thorne bring you the stories that shaped Halifax over the past quarter-century. From the first issue of the free newspaper—published June 17, 1993—to the latest blog post, The Coast has had a clear mission: to cover Halifax better than any other media organization on the planet. Founded by six friends from King's College who were inspired by New York's Village Voice, The Coast has remained independent and locally owned even as other Nova Scotia papers (not to mention the iconic Voice) surrendered their independence to the disease that is corporate chain ownership. The Coast's weekly mix of award-winning news, arts and entertainment listings earned it membership in the international Association of Alternative Newsweeklies in 2003, a sure sign that outsiders think The Coast is on the right track. But external validation will always come in second-place for The Coast, where connecting with Halifax readers is most important. The Coast is a controlled-circulation newspaper, distributed free every Thursday at over 610 locations around HRM. The highest concentration of papers can be found on the peninsula, around the university campuses and downtown. https://www.thecoast.ca/

Tara is so great and talented.
An anniversary present for Halifax
I love the idea of one episode per year, in honour of The Coast's 25th anniversary. I love that it's about Halifax. I love The Coast. And I love that Coast newspaper guy Jacob Boon and occasional CBC Radio guest Tara Thorne are actually great hosts of a radio show/podcast.
This podcast feels like a hilarious warm Halifax blanket reminding me of days gone by. Tara & Jacob's love for this city shines through in delightful banter.
