Episode 60: Hey Chris, I like your jokes…

Standard

If you are a patron of the Salt Lake Comic Con or FanX events and you have been to the main ballroom for celebrity panels, you may have noticed a tall blonde with cool socks telling dad jokes. May we introduce to you, Chris Provost, your local dad joke teller, cool sock wearer, and master of ceremonies!

The New Utah Podcast was fortunate enough to have Chris on the show this week. He gave us some behind the scenes looks into Salt Lake Comic Con from the green room to how fans approach him about his jokes. Chris talked to us about writing the Sy-Fy show Zero’s , which only had a 6 episode run, and being part of the cast of Brigsby Bear with Mark Hamill. It was also fantastic to hear him talk about his love for Star Wars and who his dream guest for Comic Con would be, and there was that one time that Walter Koening played a joke on him. Oh, in case you were wondering… he even tells us how the dad jokes started! You can follow him on Facebook/Twitter or better yet, head over to his YouTube channel, subscribe, and submit your own dad joke to him. Who knows, it might end up on stage at the next Salt Lake Comic Con event!

Happy Pie and Beer Day! Technically Monday, but we all know all of Utah will be celebrating all weekend. Head to the Beer Bar on Monday if you want a fun celebration. Remember, if you are in an area that isn’t restricted on fireworks support Chris and buy from Phantom firework stands. Or better yet, just go to a large fireworks show put on by professionals and don’t set any off. This Friday and Saturday head out to the finals for the Utah Falconz at Cottonwood High School and support our local women’s football team as they fight for their championship.

Episode 59 Red Rover, Red Rover Send Dylan right over

Standard

Episode 59 we were visited by local podcaster and creator, Dylan Mazziotti. Dylan is the creative director (aka the owner) at Lennon Design and the host and producer of Your Cre8tivity podcast. We switched it up a little this time, we had New Utah Podcast alumn, Stephen Hatch, send us the questions! We learned about apartment living, why he wanted to start his own graphic design company (which is very successful and you probably know more of their logo’s than you thought), and how a blog evolved into a podcast!  We even got to be asked a question this time!

Here is the link to the new Japanese Interment Camp museum in Topaz. If you get a chance to go hours are 11-5pm daily Monday-Saturday. There is no admission but please, we implore you to leave a donation. It took a long time to get this museum constructed.

Kids… firework damage is real. What do you think about cities enforcing a firework ban for the 24th of July? This home is a block away from our very own Jeremy and is victim to firework damage.

Events this week include:

Our very own Chris has his birthday on the 19th!!!

Manchester United VS. Real Salt Lake on Monday 17th. Tickets ARE still available.

Fire on the Water is the 15th at Jordanelle.

Halloween in Summer on Main Street in Magna is happening on Saturday.

Episode 58 Hippos are Fast and Dangerous too!

Standard
Since it was the 4th of July, we decided to just have a show to ourselves. Greedy, aren’t we!?

The festivities are done for a couple weeks til we circle ’round to the 24th of  July or Pie and Beer day as we like to celebrate!

This week we talked about marijuana being sold in Nevada legally now. Which not sure what the big deal is, our east side neighbor has already been doing it! Jason Chaffetz is FINALLY out of his Senate seat. Praise the wee baby Jesus.

With many of our Utah breweries recently winning awards, and because we love our local liquor and brewers, episode 58 we did a run through of the Brewers Byway that Kathy Stephenson – The Salt Lake Tribune reported on. We are lucky to have an influx of craft beers in Utah and each of them add something unique to the Utah brewing community!

Here are links to each Brewery on the Byway…
West Side Tavern (Utah Brewers Coop)

And no… Jessica’s vagina still doesn’t talk… as far as we know.

Episode 57 Old Tales of Rick Steadman

Standard
This episode is full of all the feels. Feel your feelings people. Come on, you know you want to! Just for 15 minutes. That’s all we ask.

 

Richie T. Steadman, Rick Steadman, Dick Steadman… by any name he was still our guest this week. You may know him as the executive producer of Radio from Hell on X96 in Salt Lake. You may know him as an actor for many  years at the Desert Star Playhouse. You may know him because he has DJ’d your event. Maybe he delivered to you a singing telegram? You may know him because he is renovating his home and #thehomesteadman is a hashtag to follow. Or you may know him as a creator of the local Utah podcast, The Cultural Hall. However you know him, this interview will hopefully give you a little more insight than you normally get! Richie confirms the story that his brother, Jeffery, told on our show a couple weeks ago in episode 53 about losing his front teeth. He hates chocolate and fruit together. He had to get in touch with his feelings for 15 minutes… alone. He’s been in theatre MUCH longer than we knew and started with the coolest head-shots EVER. Richie T. is just an all-around good guy. Oh, and he isn’t a pumpkin-pie hair-cutted freak.

 

We think we need to see those Scotty Pippen shoes!
And please hire him for your upcoming events!

Episode 56 Tribe Rejects and the Homelessness culture in Utah

Standard
Occasionally we need to ground ourselves and talk on a bit more serious level. We haven’t done that really since the election season.

For episode 56  Aaron Bryant sat down with us for a chat about his past, Salt Lake City’s homeless community and his own personal experiences with that “tribe,” and his new job with Inspiro Recovery. Aaron has taken a job as the clinical director for the upcoming recovery center, Inspiro Recovery, which will be opening in mid-July.

Inspiro Recovery is taking a different approach than other recovery/rehab centers in Utah by focusing on peer recovery services. We think that it will be a great addition to our state which is reported to have one of the highest rates of opioid addiction among other addictions.

 

inspiro recover mission

We have talked a lot about the homeless epidemic in Utah over the last few months because of the rapid increase. Aaron was able to give us a very unique perspective on addiction and Utah’s homeless situation. He shared with us his own story of addiction and recovery. From the lowest low to now carrying two master’s degrees. Aaron is in long term recovery and is the author of the memoir, Synchronous Memoir of Addiction and Recovery, which illustrates his journey in recovery, and his passion to support individuals in making positive life transformations. His book is still available!

 

If you know someone that is in need or you yourself are in need of the services of Inspiro Recovery, please reach out to 888-I-GOT-HOPE.

 

Events This week!
Thyme and Place Concrete Container workshop on the 24th
Utah Arts Festival starts Today through the 25th
Big Shiny Robot Nerd Swap on the 25th
Nick Passey at Urban Lounge on the 25th

Utah’s One Thing: New Utah Host, Jeremy

Standard

At the end of every New Utah interview we like to ask our guests, “What is the one thing that you would tell someone visiting Utah they had to do before leaving?”

The New Utah Podcast recently celebrated our 1 year anniversary! Episode 52 we each thought we should do our “one thing” someone visiting Utah should do before leaving!

Jeremy didn’t hesitate in offering up Utah’s ghost towns as the one thing that people should do when visiting Utah. There are plenty to explore. Some in ruins and some still standing. With a list of over 50 they span the entire state! You can take a day trip or make a weekend of it!
