    Delicious Apps - A Conversation with MyPlates.io

    This week on Experience This, we talk to Reza Mahdavi and Aran Goldstein about food access, healthcare, and how those are intrinsically connected. Reza and Aran are the minds behind MyPlates, a platform that connects local chefs with people looking for a good meal. Giuliano also gives us the down low on grilling and chilling in this summer heat and how to step up your game with a next level cocktail. Finally, this is our last episode of Experience This! While we’re sad to go, please know we’ll be shifting to a new show called “Public Hearing” which will focus on broken systems and the people trying to redesign them. Thank you to everyone who has followed us on this journey and we hope you’ll tune in when Public Hearing premieres in September of 2020.

Can't wait for more!

I typically don't listen to podcasts, but this is engaging and really well-edited – not too long but doesn't feel unfinished. I love the topics so far and can't wait to see what you discuss next!
