‘Eagle-Eyed’

Observe clearly, report accurately.

This is Eagle-Eyed, a new podcast from The Heights

We’re living at a time with so much happening around us, both in and out of the BC Bubble. There’s more news, more entertainment, more dog Instagrams, more Steve Addazio clips, more excessively long videos our friends posted from five different Walsh parties last night. And it’s all coming at us faster than we can swipe on to the next thing.

We’re here to sort through all of that, and provide you with the stories you need to hear most. As part of our transition to a once-a-week print publication this fall, our entire editorial staff is committed to redoubling our efforts to report stories in a prompt, engaging, and truthful manner. It’s our foremost goal to observe clearly, and report accurately — that’s where we’re taking the name for this show.
