Chris and Bre’s run down of the mind-set of a new teenage driver may have you holding on to the keys of your next driver.  Jessica headed to the Topaz Museum and Japanese Relocation camp in Delta last week. If you didn’t know, Utah has a sordid past, which includes an internment camp during WWII for Japanese Americans. Also, Did anyone know that Dr. Seuss is racist?

Without a guest this week it was great to talk about fair season which is coming up throughout the next couple months. Jessica’s has major grievance with a local farmers market. And Chris’ garden is finally growing!

Utah’s One Thing: Melinda Meservy of Thyme and Place

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?”

Of course we get a lot of the same answers on the one thing that people should do in Utah before leaving, because yes, we are known for Temple Square, our National Parks, and the mountains. When Melinda of Thyme and Place joined us for our year end episode 52, she brought to the table that someone visiting Utah needs to try some High West Whiskey! We couldn’t agree more. If you get a chance head up to the distillery, but if not you can get it at most, if not all, local restaurants and bars that serve alcohol! She did also throw in there to head south as well, but we know that is a given!

Episode 52: ALL Roads Indeed Lead to Peter!

Standard

Happy Anniversary to Us!

000f7deb0a3f507e3b15d8765c8aab02

Episode 52 is the end of our first year. We can’t say thank you enough to everyone that has participated and been excited to be part of The New Utah Podcast. We have so many amazing people in Utah and we look forward to a new year of meeting more!

For our end of year show we were joined by the lovely Melinda, who is the owner and brain behind Thyme and Place. Melinda chatted with us about her journey from the corporate world (literally) to a passion for plants. If you need to incorporate plants into your home and are afraid of killing them, don’t worry, she offers air plants and succulents that need little attention. Maybe you need a place to just meditate and  get your hands dirty, Thyme and Place should be it! Melinda was even so kind to bring us a beautiful Rubber Tree as an anniversary gift! And Melinda gets full credit for our show title this week, it’s true… the roads do all lead to Peter.

You can find her at 362 E 900 S in Salt Lake City. Keep up with her events and workshops on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram

Every episode we ask our guests, “what is the ONE thing you would tell someone visiting Utah that they must do before leaving.” This week we each went through what our “one things” are.

Chris said The Chocolate.

Bre said go to a Real Salt Lake game.

Jeremy said hit up some local ghost towns.

Jessica said eat local (Hub & Spoke Diner, Grove Market and Deli, India Palace Provo Utah) and finish up with a drive up the Alpine loop and stop at Treasures Antique Mall in Springville!

We recapped of some of our favorite episodes and events we took part in. It was pretty much unanimous that Utah Halloween Expo was our favorite event (episodes 21 and 22)!

We’d love to hear what were some of your favorite episodes? Do you have a favorite show title or guest?

What would you like to see us talk about and do this new year?

Again, we look forward to a stellar new year with more amazing people that represent the heart and soul of Utah! Thank you again to everyone who has made this happen for us.

The New Utah was so excited to finally have Genevra Prothero on the show as a guest by herself. Campaign manager to Misty K Snow and now Davis County chair for Utah Women Unite, this woman is standing up and fighting the good fight. We don’t want to give too much away about the interview, but we can’t wait to hear what is in the works for both Genevra and Misty.

This weekend is Salt Lake Comic Con 2017 FanX! Make sure to stop and visit our friends at The Truffle Cottage and buy some mind-blowing chocolates. Then get a book from David J West. Go to one of Kerry Jackson, Travis Tate, and Aaron Burton‘s panel’s. AND get some delicious licorice from C&C Candies.  Of course in no particular order.

St Patrick’s is the weekend. Per Chris, don’t be a douche!!! Head to Mountain West Cidery for their second annual 4th West Fest with Red Rock Brewing!
