    It’s Parade Week In Evergreen Park!

    It’s Parade Week In Evergreen Park!

    The big Evergreen Park Independence Day Parade returns this Friday, and we have a few of the participants on this episode. Frank Murray of the Evergreen Park Public Library has magicians, stuffed animals that come to life and spy training this month. Just don’t ask him to throw out free library books at the parade! John Brand of Open Outcry helps out our youngest local entrepreneur with some tips this week, but the biggest question is what his brewery will be handing out on the parade route. Join us for ”30 Minutes of Good!”

    So You Want To Make Beer?

    So You Want To Make Beer?

    On this Weekend Edition of The EP Podcast, we go deep into what it takes to start a local business. After Mayor Kelly Burke recently told us that residents were very interested in seeing a brewery come to Evergreen Park, we have John Brand from Open Outcry candidly breaking down the good and bad of brewing beer for a living. Plus we talk about the new craze that may be following craft breweries...local distilleries.

Thank you!

A few of the other podcasts I listen to skipped last week. I was out there on Sunday and Monday, and a little normalcy when I get off is needed. Thank you for going live and posting! Always like ur show!

Two Trustees and 1 White Sox pitcher

Maybe just a little bit more attention should be given to a local girl “Who just won the Silver Medal in the Olympics. Do we really need to know what Donn Paul thinks of the White Sox upcoming season? Next time Norm is on the show make sure you have plenty of bird food for his his pet parrot!😂King of the one liners “Absolutely”

Great Local Podcast!

The EP Podcast always provides great insight to local businesses with a side of comedy. It's nice to see something like this for a small Chicagoland suburb!
