Text of introduction by Joseph Planta:

I am Planta: On the Line. This is THECOMMENTARY.CA.

Once again, I am joined by Global BC’s Mike McCardell. He has a new book out, Getting to the Bubble: Finding Magic Amid the Urban Roar. It is his fourth book and full of wonderful stories about the people he meets every day in the course of filing his regular reports on Global’s News Hour, which he’s reported for since 1976. His previous books, Chasing the Story God, Back Alley Reporter, and The Blue Flames That Keep Us Warm, have all been bestsellers, as has this one I might add, and all four have raised money for the Variety Club. Retailing for $32.95, it is a delightful book, and is from Harbour Publishing. Please welcome back to the Planta: On the Line program, Mike McCardell; Good morning, Mr. McCardell.
