Next Saturday afternoon, January 12, please join us at the Brooklyn Podcast Festival.
Hope you’re all enjoying the weekend.
I’m dropping this short post on Saturday as a public-service announcement of sorts for subscribers, or for new readers who may have discovered us this week in the wake of my Splendid Table podcast interview.
One week from today–Saturday, January 12, from 2pm to 4pm at The Bell House–we’ll be staging the first ever LIVE edition of my podcast Andrew Talks to Chefs at the Brooklyn Podcast Festival. If you live in/near New York City, or will be here that day, would love for you to come out and see us.
The headliner guest is Tom Colicchio of Crafted Hospitality and–of course–Top Chef, with whom I’ll engage in a deep-dive, one-on-one interview.
That will be followed by a “Brooklyn: Then & Now” rap session featuring Olmsted‘s Greg Baxtrom, La Vara and Saint Julivert‘s Alex Raij; and Brooklyn O.G. Alan Harding, whose dear, departed Patois helped usher in the modern Brooklyn restaurant scene in the 1990s. I’ll be in the moderator chair for that one, too.
There will also be a live performance of the show’s theme music and other songs by the Brooklyn-based band FaTHERS, including a full set from when the doors open at 2pm until the first interview begins at 2:30.
Tickets may be purchased here; if you use the promo code ANDREW at checkout, they are just $10 each, plus service charge. Not bad for 2 hours of entertainment.
Will be back with a regular post after the weekend. In the meantime, thanks for indulging me, and hope to see you at the show.
