Former Coast news editor Tim Bousquet joins us to talk about the day the sewage treatment plant failed and what lessons were learned at city hall. Then we get into HRM By Design and Tim's early days live-tweeting council.

Plus Paul McCartney comes to town for what's sure to be a successful concert, chef Ray Bear flees from Halifax after his business partner threatens his life and historic Morris House is on the move.

Tara and Jacob also look at racism in the Halifax fire department, the Chronicle Herald axes a quarter of its newsroom and suspicions of fowl play inside the Public Gardens when a famous goose turns up dead...or was she murdered?

And, yes, we also talk about Brindi.
