Andrew DiPaolo of WFMJ

One of the major bonuses of moving the studio downtown… being in a central location for awesome people like Meteorologist Andrew DiPaolo at 21 WFMJ to easily walk over to say hi. It was a great time catching up with my friend over some delicious BIRDFISH BREWING CO. beer.

Elisha of Babcia’s Lunchbox and Sarah of Modern Methods

A new trend that I only see growing in popularity… Food and Beer, pairings that are spot on! Collaborations and creativity are key. As Elisa Veon of Babcia’s Lunchbox best stated what she is doing is being a “cultural evangelist” sharing the culture and sharing the history of her heritage through food. And Modern Methods Brewing Company has the same mindset, from the name of their brewery to the flavors of their beers. So these two together are the perfect pair through food, beverage and podcast guests. Thank you Sarah Keck and Elisha Veon for sharing your history and bringing to us a way to enjoy our history and learning other cultures through taste.

Ep.43- Steve Vesey, WFMJ

From on the air at WFMJ anchoring your morning news with Christa Amendola to joining Lisa Resnick in the podcast studio, Steve Vesey loves a good microphone and reason to talk the Valley. He has a unique perspective, growing up in Vienna, going to Ohio University, and starting his reporting career out of state before returning here five years ago. They talk about what’s changed since they were growing up, all our area has to offer, and where we’re going. And of course, some opinions about our local craft beer scene and some cool stories from his time covering the Buffalo Bills. Enjoyed over some cold ones from Noble Creature and Modern Methods
