Fireweed Podcast

Fireweed, BCIT’s first branded podcast has launched

In British Columbia, fireweed is the very first plant to grow back after a forest fire. Humble and tenacious, bright and prolific, fireweed is a symbol of hope, resilience, and adaptability – things the world could all use a little more of right now. Fireweed, consists of six 20-minute episodes, which celebrates stories of people who have persevered and re-written their story in the face of disruption.

During an unparalleled period of profound adjustment in the way we work, learn, and socialize, the stories of Fireweed will provide a unique educational experience for listeners that features guests on topics including accessibility, sustainability, cybersecurity, shifting careers, advancing education, and the future of transportation.
