This week’s conversation is about slowing down. Take it from someone who has worked in the busy hustle of the digital newsroom and has interviewed Justin Trudeau way too many times. We’d like to welcome Farhan Mohamed on today’s episode! For 8 years, he dedicated his time and passion to help build what we now all know as Daily Hive. As the editor-in-chief, he cultivated a digital space for media consumption of all things Vancity, which has since expanded exponentially and globally. Tune in and find out more about what decisions lead up to Farhan’s resignation, why he values community as the most powerful key to success and how we can be socially responsible when it comes to the production and consumption of sustainable media. 



  • A reflection on Farhan’s time with DailyHive
  • On the leadership skills required to navigate any community 
  • What it means to experience the digital newsroom as an insider and why the future should tend towards more sustainable media production and consumption
  • What is Vancouver’s Identity?
