On the latest show, successful internet entrepreneur Jason Calacanis joins BIV co-hosts Kirk LaPointe and Hayley Woodin to discuss angel investing, Vancouver's startup ecosystem and product-founder fit. In a special two-part interview during his visit to Vancouver, Calacanis shares why he wrote Angel: How to Invest in Technology Startups, how he knew it was the right time to invest in Uber, and how he got his hands on the first Tesla Model S.

Later on, Jeff Rubin, former chief economist of CIBC World Markets, offers bold recommendations for Canada’s rapidly decarbonizing economy. He'll argue why the National Energy Board needs to change how it re-evaluates proposed pipeline projects.

BIV’s weekly technology discussion focuses on whether Toronto-Montreal will see the world’s first Hyperloop One tube transportation system, Facebook’s push to safeguard Canada’s elections, and Slack’s latest $250 million round of funding.
