Fun discussions on local food scene, but…

Got introduced to this podcast via Paul Guglielmo’s podcast and Stromie’s Food About Town, and have really been enjoying it. I’ll personally never tire of hearing from local food entrepreneurs and others connected with the local food scene. The guys have great personalities and obviously a fantastic sense of humor. If I had one piece of constructive criticism, it’d be to ask your guests to talk into the mic. I listen in the car and I find myself turning the audio levels all the way up to hear (usually) the guests. Otherwise, great job!
