Love this podcast

Jaime is a very food interviewer whole lets people speak and tell their stories. My favorite podcast. I used to live in SD and listen to the Happy Half Hour food podcast with Troy Johnson et al. This compares favorably as a one person show.

So consuming ,

Great California Central Coast food/beverage/life story podcast!

I can’t even remember how I found this podcast, but I’m glad I did! Super interesting local creators of food, beverage, social movements, etc with a focus on California’s central coast, but enjoyable wherever you are.

The perfect podcast does exist

I can’t say enough good things about this podcast. Jamie is such an smart and thoughtful interviewer. Food, drinks, and then central coast are the themes of this podcast; however, Jamie and all of her guests openly talk about achievements, struggles and failures in such a beautiful and human way, that I think “life” is a better way of describing it. I have learned from and related to each guest/episode. I believe the central coast is the most perfect place in the world, which this podcast reinforces. Thank you to Jamie and the sponsors for keeping this show going, especially during these uncertain times.
