Episode 64 Kate Kelly is not her struggle…

Standard

You’re not your struggle. You can engage but you are a separate person.” –Kate Kelly

This week we were joined by attorney, activist, feminist, and all around phenomenal person; Kate Kelly.

You may know her as the former head and creator of Ordain Women who was violently ex-communicated from the LDS (Mormon) church. BUT we wanted to delve deeper because frankly she’s talked that subject to death and she has SO much more to say. We had an opportunity to talk to her about her upcoming law firm she will be opening(G.I.R.L.), her wiki page, her continued work on a book about slave breeding and how it shaped our country, her definition of being a feminist, and we got pretty passionate about Planned Parenthood with her. Excuse the emotions.  Kate has so much on her plate and her passion runs deep. And if the politics of it all are too much, you  may just love someone who loves mid-century modern, she’s fun to follow!

Oh! And we’re all in agreement that Orrin Hatch will be dying in office. Wah-wah…

You can follow her and get involved through her Twitter , her Instagram, or her Facebook. You can also find her at http://www.katekellyesq.com/

Episode 63 Hard Cider in Utah

Standard

The New Utah Podcast was honored to be invited to record at Mountain West Cidery this week! It seems like it was just yesterday that Jen, co-owner, joined us for episode 18! This time we got Jeff, also an owner, and Jess their marketing guru!

First things first. Did you know that in Utah cider is classified as a wine? Yea, we didn’t either and it’s kind of dumb. The only way to change these silly laws is to get in with the legislative sessions like Jeff has been doing! If you are interested in helping, just reach out to them. Mountain West Cider is heavily involved in the community, which we love, and are currently wrapping up their second year of Gay Ruby for Utah Pride celebration. After we spoke to Jen last year they introduced Desolation to their line up, proceeds from bottle sells support the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance. This bottling brings them to four; 7 Mile, Ruby, Desolation, and Cottonwood. They are working on a second release of Stillwater, which is their hard cider aged in High Whiskey barrels for 6 months! Yum! They are getting ready for their second annual 4th West Oktoberfest at the end of September, doing quarterly gallery strolls with local artists, an upcoming partnership with Subaru, and a third Thursday of the month exercise and cider night! They also book events at their space if you are interested.

Partnering again with Green Urban Lunch Box, look for their bottling this fall of their second edition mash up of apples! You can find them on ALL the social media’s; Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and now SnapChat!

Utah’s One Thing: Stephen Hatch, Hatch Family Chocolates

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 besides visiting his chocolate shop in the Avenues… Stephen Hatch, of Hatch Family Chocolates and Your Cre8tivity Podcast, said in episode 54 he is tired of people that think Utah is boring. He loves our locally owned restaurants and said to head to Garage on Beck! Southern Food and live music. There is nothing possibly wrong with that. Also learn that not everyone fits a stereotype and so there is something for everyone.

Utah’s One Thing: Jeffrey Steadman of Yelp Utah

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?”

Jeffrey Steadman, author and creative operational director at Yelp Utah and guest of episode 53, said that the one thing someone should do while visiting Utah is to meet a local. Jeffrey said to roll up to any brewery, restaurants, whatever … but engage a local because we have some of the most amazing people in the world. Jeffrey also said if it is just once that you are visiting Utah, the only reason you’d leave is to get your stuff to come back.

Episode 61 Cigars for Idiots 101.

Standard

Bad news guys… toxic algae has arrived…. What isn’t toxic is this week Jessica shared with us about her aerobatic flight that she took with local Heber company, Utah War Bird Adventures, in a Pitts Biplane. Great news, firework season is finally over for Chris. Thank you wee baby Jesus.

They always say don’t meet your heros… However, we think there are exceptions… always.  Kendrick Woolstenhulme, owner of Beehive Cigars, joined us this week. We should have kept the cigars hidden until the end of the episode because it was like kids at Christmas waiting to open presents. Yes, you may be familiar with that other cigar shop across town BUT we are here to make sure that Beehive Cigars becomes a Utah institution!

From dueling pianist at Keys on Main to a cigar shop owner, we were able to talk to Kendrick about his journey of walking in and buying a cigar shop, creating blends specifically for their house cigars at Beehive Cigars (you’ll want to listen for the historical significance on each of those), and of course future events and plans for Beehive Cigars.  You can visit their website, follow them on Twitter, or on Facebook to keep up to date.

We want to wish our New Utah Alumn, Nick Passey, a Happy Birthday and if you want to head to his birthday show, it is TONIGHT (27th) at the Green Pig on 4th South in SLC.

Melinda at Thyme and Place is hosting a cement containers workshop this Saturday.

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 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.
