The latest episode of the Best Coast Political Podcast dives into the state of the music scene in Victoria and business models of our local venues.

Hosts Matt Dell (of Court Club, CROATIA, Kincaide) and Jeremy Caradonna spoke to former Copper Owl owner Renee Crawford and musician/producer Neil Cook-Dallin about the challenges music venues and musicians have gone trough both before and during the pandemic, the loss of venues in the city and what can be done to improve the scene and make live music into a more viable business.

The discussion begins at about the 12:30 mark after the hosts talked about the results of the Victoria City Council byelection.
