Episode 53 Do You Yelp?

Standard

Welcome, welcome!

First we want to thank Nick Passey and the dudes of Folk Hogan for allowing us to use their music for our new intro! We are proud to use local music.

What better way to start with our new year of The New Utah Podcast than with a company and person who is passionate about Utah?

We got to start our new year by having Jeffrey Steadman in studio. Jeffrey is the Senior Community Director for Yelp in Utah! Not only is he holding a coveted position in Yelp, he is also the author of “The Best In Tent Camping.”  Listen to Jeffrey talk about the impact of Yelp in the Utah scene. Yelp isn’t just a directory site, they are making sure that the people using it are included in activities and VIP parties all around the state! Of course we had to ask him what his favorite restaurants are, we believe his title should be, “Pokemon of Restaurants.” Don’t you think? You can find YelpSLC on Instagram (the best), Twitter, and Facebook! And of course download the app to take advantage of the new reservation feature.

What is your favorite place you have found using Yelp?

It is Pride weekend in Salt Lake! There is plenty to do including Utah’s premier drag impersonation show Viva La Diva’s Show at ClubX and the massive parade on Sunday. We also want to congratulate The New Utah Podcast alum, Misty K Snow, for winning the breaking barriers award from the Pride Festival this year!

Episode 34 Taking a ride on the Ativan…

Standard

The New Utah Podcast met up this week with an old friend, local author David J. West. We met at the Halloween Expo in October and we’re so excited to have him on this week to talk about his new book, “Scavengers (A Porter Rockwell Adventure)” which is being released on January 24th through Amazon. (but you can pre-order now!) David even has a special running next week for the release of Scavengers!! (which you’ll just have to listen to get your deal)  From Montana, to Los Angeles, settling in Utah. David has found a passion and knack for writing historically based western, sci-fi, fantasy and horror (not whore) books! The new release focuses on local Utah favorite, Porter Rockwell!!

Sundance starts TODAY!!! Download the app, and get out to see some great movies and remember to support your local restaurants while you are out and about. The time has come *sigh* and this week we have a transition of power *coughTrumpcough*  This weekend is the Women’s March on DC and there are several Women’s Marches happening in Utah this weekend. The largest are on Saturday the 21st on Main Street in Park City and Monday the 23rd at the State Capitol (which coincides with the first day of Utah Legislature in session).  The beautiful DC to PC poster below is by local artist, Lindsey E. Larsen Myer is available for purchase in Park City (info at the bottom of the picture).
