This richly reported podcast, led by award-winning filmmaker and artist Vicki Chau and funded through Telus Storyhive’s inaugural Podcast Edition, is complemented by striking visuals of Chinatown’s streetscapes, murals and buildings. So, watching the podcast (rather than just listening to it) is highly recommended. Hosts Gabriel Yee and Raymond Lau sit down with local business owners to explore all the ways this community is evolving, covering its transition from an enclave for Chinese immigrants into a diverse hub of culture, art, food and more.

Views from Chinatown is available through Telus Optik TV, Storyhive’s YouTube channel or on Spotify.
