Ep.12 Chris 2.0 is the *beep*


This week for Episode 12 Chris, our podministrator, was out and was swiftly replaced with Chris 2.0, AKA the very funny and talented, Travis Tate.

We were fortunate to have Travis sit in as co-host this week and talk about his comedy career here in Salt Lake City. Listen to Travis talk about his creative process, who his favorite comedians are (nationally and locally), and we promise, it ISN’T Dane Cook. We can’t wait to have him back to hear about his upcoming web series! Find him on The Facebook and The Twitter for upcoming events (like Salt Lake Comic Con which he will be a panelist, stay tuned on the SLCC page for schedule) Josh even had a great idea for a future “clean” set… Maybe it *bleep* would work, maybe it *bleep* won’t?


Did you know that West Jordan is fighting to keep the Book of Faces (aka. Facebook) out of the city? After a city council meeting on the 16th, the discussion only became more heated on whether or not a data center for the social media site would be allowed. What do you think? Like or Comment. . .

This weeks events in Utah seep into next week as well! Zoo Brew is happening on the 24th on August but it is SOLD OUT. You might be able to find a ticket on KSL.com and then you can drink and hang out with the animals… you know talk with the animals… learn their languages.

It is also State Fair season! This weekend is the Salt Lake County Fair in South Jordan and The Utah County Fair in Spanish Fork! Demolition derbies, fair food, and animals… oh my! Mmmm fair food….

And it’s that time again… Drag Brunch at ClubX downtown Salt Lake City! Come for brunch and Mimosas/Bloody Marys, and stay for the show! Including our past guest, Indi Skies!



August 19th is the start of the 1st Annual Wasatch International Food Festival at the Utah Cultural Center in West Valley. Don’t even question it. Just go and eat ALL the foods! And coming up next weekend on the 27th, we are forewarning you to get your tickets now, is the City Weekly Utah Beer Festival! This event is being held at the Utah State Fairgrounds. With 150 beers from around the world and proceeds going to the Humane Society, it seems like a win-win don’t you think?


Also a HUGE congrats from the New Utah Podcast to Salt Lake City Mayor Jackie Biskupski on her nuptials this past week! Utah is leaning towards progressive and she is a great example of that in our community!
