    S1E17 Maryann Kmet is The Ladle Lady

    Check out MKE LOVE here.

    The Ladle Lady makes Milwaukee taste great, I can attest. Maryann Kmet is the Ladle Lady, an MKE business that began with soup and has quickly burgeoned to include a number of tasty, healthy dishes. Maryann talks about her connection to Milwaukee, how fitness flowed into healthy cooking (namely soup to begin with), and the impact that this global pandemic has had on her business.

    S1E16 Kevin Wondra of the Walkers Point Association

    Check out MKE LOVE here. 

    The Walkers Point Association (WPA) has, for years, been helping Milwaukee look, sound, and taste great by partnering with the community and business owners to enable their success. Kevin Wondra has led the association for the past several years. I interviewed Kevin on Wednesday, June 3, 2020, when we discussed... Kevin's background, the history of the WPA, and reflections on what's going on in our world today with the pandemic and Black Lives Matter.

    S1E15 Marko Knezic of MKE Bar Dice Co

    Check out MKE LOVE online via our site (http://mkelovepodcast.com) and linktree(http://linktr.ee/mkelove).
    Also, check out the Experience Milwaukee Podcast, who also published an episode with Marko in April, 2020.
    It could be said that Marko Knezic, founder of MKE Bar Dice Co, is making Milwaukee look, sound, and taste great. Bar dice, I've learned, is an important part of Milwaukee bar culture. When one engages in a game of bar dice at a bar (inferred... it's in the name), it's assumed the experience is accompanied by unique bar visuals, delicious Milwaukee food and drinks, and the sound of dice knocking about in a fancy leather cup. I interviewed Marko on Friday, May 29, 2020, when we discussed... Marko's background, the Milwaukee bar staple known as bar dice, and the launch of MKE Bar Dice in the midst of a global pandemic.

    Simon McConico, 1 of 3 founders of Vennture Brew Co (5519 W North Ave) is making Milwaukee taste great with brewed liquid of the coffee and craft beer variety.
