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!

Ep31. Drag Queen’s selling Tupperware in Uncle Rico’s van!

Standard

The New Utah decided to break down 2016 Utah news stories and what we remembered. With everyone’s lists not out yet, we built our own. From Utah tornado’s, Bears Ears (which at the time of recording hadn’t been announced), the loss of some great Utah Officers, flooding in southern Utah, and of course the toxic algae… I think we survived 2016 okay! (hopefully Jessica doesn’t get poisoned)

New Years is just around the corner and there are events up and down the Wasatch Front. That includes Viva La Diva Dinner show at ClubX Friday AND Saturday.  (yes, you can have omelettes for dinner, but our events mistress won’t be cooking them this time) and local comedian and podcaster, Jay Whittakter doing two nights at Wiseguys in Ogden. Who doesn’t want to bring in the new year with a good laugh???

Guess What!!! Our guest this week we finally snagged the incomparable Miss Harry-It Winston!!! Former Miss City Weekly, Tupperware sales lady, and creator of SLC Drag Brunch. Harry-It talks to us about moving from small town USA, coming out to parents, and getting into drag! We were so excited she was finally able to join us.

Episode 26: Small Business Saturday Utah Version

Standard

Welcome to 26 friends! We hope everyone had a tasty and peaceful Thanksgiving, and we hope your political conversations were civil and kept to a minimum. (and if you had good heated conversations, we want to hear about it!)

The New Utah Podcast was so excited to finally snag owner/sales/marketing guru and photographer, Steve Conlin, of Utah’s very own… Ogden’s Own. Yep, you know them as the producers of Five Wives Vokda, Underground, and the new Porters series (peach and fire) Forget the fireball you are shooting at the bar kids… Porter’s Fire is what you need in your life. It was awesome to hear him talk about the psychology of alcohol marketing, the laws of tailgating at the University of Utah and alcohol, and he even gave us an exclusive of upcoming product!

You know you’re excited!!!
