    Episode 15: Riley Redfern – The Un-Sustainability of the Hospitality Industry Pt.2

    Trigger Warning: This episode discusses sensitive subjects such as self-harm and is not safe for work.
    This week Chefs Chris and Juice are joined by Chef Gerard Kenny to interview Riley Redfern, ex-3-Michelin starred pastry chef turned software engineer. We chronical her journey from a teenager with a copy of Anthony Bourdain’s Kitchen Confidential to becoming one of the top pastry chefs in the country. We discuss her battle with depression and alcohol, how the hospitality industry contributed to the problem, and how the pandemic exposed the foibles of the hospitality industry.
    Sustainability doesn't always mean your buying solar panels, composting, or cooking on induction. Sustainability also means taking care of yourself and your mental health. Riley exemplifies this and is an incredible person, her story should serve as a cautionary tale and an inspiration to us all.
    If you or someone you know is struggling with thoughts of self harm and substance abuse please reach out for help. There are people who truly care and want to help.

    Episode 10: Brady Seals of RMI: "Stovers", Harvard & Samantha Bee?

    Episode 10: Brady Seals of RMI: "Stovers", Harvard & Samantha Bee?

    This week we sat down with Brady Seals of the Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) as we discuss her career as a "Stover", her experience on the Full Frontal with Samantha Bee show. We dive deep on the landmark Harvard Study and how it works hand in hand with the growing electrification and decarbonization movement.
    Brady comes to RMI with a decade of renewable energy experience within the global household energy sector. Her interest in energy access began at a nonprofit promoting biofuels-based cookstoves. She has commercialized clean technologies and fuels by directing programs within the nonprofit and corporate sectors in more than 16 countries. Brady most recently worked as a consultant advising nonprofits, corporations, and multinationals on energy impact strategies and investments. Throughout her career, she has contributed to several research efforts to study, quantify, and communicate the climate and health benefits of air pollution-mitigating technologies and strategies.

Chef_Galarza ,

Can’t wait!

I can’t wait for this podcast to drop. Finally there’s something out there that can explain what the heck is induction and why are cities banning gas?

This is definitely something I’m going to tune into.
