To celebrate its 25th anniversary, The Coast is dipping its toes in this whole podcast fad the youths are talking about.

Welcome to 25 for 25, our new weekly podcast.

In each episode, Tara Thorne and I will look back at one year from the past quarter-century and discuss some of the big and weird events happening in Halifax at the time. But that's not all! We'll also have special guests on to share their stories.

Our first episode came out today (subscribe on Soundcloud, Stitcher and iTunes) and covers the exciting days of 1993—when the Blue Jays were winning and Canada had three prime ministers. We immediately get navel-gazey to speak with our boss, Kyle Shaw, about how The Coast started. After that, Sloan's Jay Ferguson drops by to talk about the band's early days and Halifax as “the new Seattle.”

If you like the podcast, please feel free to give us a nice rating or leave a review. Apparently, it makes the episodes easier for people to find.

If you hate the podcast, want to correct something we got wrong or have comments about any events we forgot to mention you can email us at letters@thecoast.ca
