This podcast is designed to give listeners a one-on-one experience with small businesses and people who make up our community.
Chef Joey Maggiore
We sat down with Chef Joey Maggiore, owner and founder of the Maggiore Restaurant Group. Joey is the son of famed-chef Tomato Maggiore – whose restaurant, Tomaso’s, is a staple in the Arcadia community. From growing up in the kitchen, to starting his own cache of eateries, Chef Joey continues to make a mark on the Valley – and has plans to expand beyond – to southwest states – in the near future.
We sit down with our own award-winning columnist Sam Lowe!
Starting with The Jamestown Sun in North Dakota, Sam made his way southwest and kicked off a successful journalism career with several Arizona publications. He’s written more than 3500 columns, 14 books and spent 45 years challenging the rigid world of journalism and making it his own.
Today Sam pens “The Lowe Road” for the Arcadia News – a column about his travels, observations, and the unique people, places and things he’s encountered.
Featured in Arcadia News back in July of 2019, Marshall Shore has become somewhat of a Valley celebrity with his presentations of Arizona’s past. Known as the official unofficial Hip Historian, Marshall shares interesting bits and curiosities from our past: the semi-forgotten people, places, and events that have made us who we are today by using storytelling, film footage, photographs, sound recordings and artifacts. Marshall brings history to life – most recently with his virtual History Happy Hour presentations.
Chef Chris Collins
As a fourth-generation restauranteur, Chef Christopher Collins knows his way around the kitchen. Collins is the owner/operator of Common Ground Culinary, which has Arcadia-area eateries like The Macintosh, The Collins Small Batch Kitchen and Wally’s Pub, to name a few.
