HowChow Chat

In our continuing quest to have a wide variety of guests on our podcast, this week we were joined by HowChow. In a little over two years his blog has become the preeminent voice of all things food in HoCo. It will come as no surprise to anyone who has read his blog that he once was a reporter. If you live in HoCo and you like food you’ll probably enjoy this show.

This show marked the end of our seven month run at the Lakeside Café. The owners said they had received some “concerns” from certain patrons and it was felt that we should probably find somewhere else to do the show. It was a good run at Lakeside and I’ll miss the place but as they say, when one door closes another opens, or something like that. The show will go on and for now at least it will stay in Town Center. Our next show will be out on the street as the Columbia Festival of the Arts three day LakeFest gets underway on June 11th. We shall endeavor to stay out of the way.

And speaking of the street, we decided not to do the café walk around segment at the end of this show. We’ll probably drop it all together. It has always been the most difficult part for us because at two o’clock on a Friday afternoon there just aren’t that many people in the café. After listening to the show last night I’m convinced we need something at the end to replace it. One thought was to have an “open mic” where anyone could sign up for five minutes with us to talk about whatever is on their minds.

It’s a work in progress.

You can listen to the latest episode of “and then there’s that…” here.
