Mostly good guests, annoying delivery

Some top chefs and personalities interviewed however the sound quality and delivery have much to be desired. The host sounds like she’s bored and her voice is super annoying. Not sure why people would listen to this apart from the sometimes well known guests...

I love Manhattan ,

All in the industry

I have been listening to All in the Industry since it began 5 years ago and have learned a lot about the hospitality industry. All the podcasts have been interesting and informative.

Each show starts off with Shari saying: “well hello!

Shari has a sweet voice and makes her guests comfortable so they tell us of their background and how they became a force in the hospitality industry.

The show’s format is wonderful. Each show starts with a PR Tip that applies to public relations, the show’s guest and all the listeners. We then listen to a discussion about the career and current activity of
an intriguing guest telling his or her story.

Next comes Shari’s speed round game, which simply asks the guest to quickly choose between dining choices. It is funny how often guests can not select between eating in and eating out, or cheese plate or dessert.

Industry news discusses timely topics in the hospitality industry.

Shari’s solo dining experience is a review of a restaurant with Shari’s insights and fun facts.

And then Shari says: “and that’s the show”!

Shari has now completed 222 shows. I continue to look forward to a new show each week. I give All in the Industry 5 stars.
