Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Robert Tercek, Ingmar Lee, Janine Bandcroft Dec. 2, 2015

Do you ever get the feeling things are disappearing around you? Afraid to turn your attention away for a moment, in case you look back to see the world you knew irreparably altered; gone forever?

You’re not mad. Our world has become ever more ephemeral; a lot less “reality” based lately. Whether “the cloud,” or other digital technologies emerging to nudge our familiar hardware existence aside, it’s all a part of what my first guest calls being, “Vapourized.”

And, this is not only happening in media, where the last decade has seen the newspaper, magazine, and music business rocked by new digital habits, but is also moving into the electronics industries.

Robert Tercek is a 21st Century Renaissance man whose nearly 23 year career pre-dates most of what makes up our modern world.

Tercek has created breakthrough entertainment experiences across digital platforms, including: satellite television, game consoles, broadband Internet, interactive teevee, and mobile networks. His expertise includes too working the executive suites; most recently serving as President of Digital Media at OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network, a Senior Vice President of Digital Media at Sony Pictures, and as Creative Director at MTV. Robert also co-founded five startup ventures, including 7th Level, Inc, and is the author of the book, ‘Vaporized: Solid Strategies for Success In A Dematerialized World.’

And; last month, barely a week into his mandate, Canada’s new prime minister, Justin Trudeau ordered Transport Canada coordinate with the Fisheries, Natural Resources, and Environment Ministries to put in place an oil tanker moratorium along BC’s north coast. It’s a stunning reversal of federal policy; but what does it mean in real terms?

Ingmar Lee is a long-time, BC-based environment defender whose latest effort is ‘10,000 Ton Tanker’ campaign to clear BC’s inside passage of dangerous tanker traffic currently flying under the radar. His past efforts to save the forests and watershed ecosystems of Vancouver Island include being among the few who took to the trees in the iconic Cathedral Grove, and remaining for two years while the law, loggers, and Weyerhaeuser threatened them every day in every way they could. The fact the Grove remains at all is due in great part to he and his “outlaw” cohorts.

Between campaigns like Cathedral Grove, fighting the destruction of the suburban forest to make way for highways in Langford, scaling the BC Legislature flag pole to garner press in opposition to the Enbridge pipeline scheme, and dismantling seismic explosives in the heart of Sandhill Crane nesting grounds, Ingmar earned an Asia Studies degree from the University of Victoria, with a minor in Environmental Studies.

And; Victoria Street Newz publisher emeritus and CFUV Radio broadcaster, Janine Bandcroft will join us at the bottom of the hour to bring us news of good doings and otherwise planned for the streets of our town in the coming week; and beyond there too. But first, Robert Tercek and ‘Vaporized: Solid Strategies for Success In A Dematerialized World.’
