    #141: The Best Gelato in Jenkintown

    #141: The Best Gelato in Jenkintown

    Carminati Creamery makes delicious gelato from scratch and their long-awaited Jenkintown location just opened in Yorkway Place. The PIC stopped by, ate some gelato, and have some thoughts. We remember the history of Carminati in Jenkintown from its humble beginnings as a Summer Music Series gelato cart to the pandemic hustle of home delivered cold treats, to the Glenside location, and finally now back home to one of the coolest areas of town. Plus, updates on Jenkintown 150 events, Chrissie's yoga studio, and the story of how a pallet of floor tiles destroyed Steve's shoulder. It's a short and sweet episode. Listen to it while you walk to Carminati Creamery for some gelato!

    #140: A Soundtrack of Togetherness With Joe Montone

    #140: A Soundtrack of Togetherness With Joe Montone

    Joe Montone has been bringing live music to communities for over 14 years. With a soon-to-be-launched nonprofit called Stage United on the horizon and the third year producing the Abington Art Center's Summer Concert Series about to begin, Joe is making waves in the regional live music and performance scene. In this episode, we talk about concerts, air guitar competitions, the amazing Tile Works venue, creating a nonprofit, and more. Joe is doing fantastic things for the Doylestown and Jenkintown/Abington communities and we think you'll be as excited as we were to learn what cool events he has cooking this summer. You'll want to watch until the end for a fun A Game Called Something that will finally reveal why Steve would be a terrible Walmart greeter.
