Utah’s One Thing: Jennifer Jones author of The Dead History

Standard

At the end of every New Utah Podcast interview we like to ask our guests, “What is the one thing that you would tell someone visiting Utah they had to do before leaving?”

Episode 76 we were joined by author and researcher, Jennifer Jones of The Dead History and “Ghosts of Ogden, Brigham City, and Logan.” Jennifer is a transport to Utah and lives in the northern half of Utah so we asked her what her one thing she would tell someone visiting Utah they had to do before leaving! Jennifer said, head to 25th Street in Ogden! She said it is a unique part of history and there is really no place like 25th Street.

We agree! We even head that Al Capone wouldn’t step foot there.

Visit Ogden has a list of 25 things to do on 25th Street!

At the end of every New Utah Podcast interview we like to ask our guests, “What is the one thing that you would tell someone visiting Utah they had to do before leaving?”

From all the amazing cosplayers, the vendors, the panelist, and the celebrities… we took in everything! We asked people what the one thing that people had to do before they left Salt Lake Comic Con was and these were some of the answers that we got;

Utah artists Matt Page of E Pluribus Mormon “Go through the whole thing, it’s going to take a long time, so wear good shoes. The place is big.”

Utah Author, Johnny Worthen “Go to a panel you have no interest in, to find out what you are missing. Stretch your interests… Get outside of your fandom

Mark Avo, Panelist and Comic Book writer for Salt City Strangers, “I like artist alley and meeting the artists. For most people I would say don’t miss out on the feeling of family…”

Author, MichaelBrent Collings, “urinate periodically cause doing it in costume is a real faux pas… drink lots of water… it is a physically draining thing you have to take care of yourself.”

Utah Author, Bob Defendi, “Use the bathroom, it’s a long drive…”

Father and Son Cos-players Dusty and Corbin, Corbin who is an amazing whistler: “definitely get a dragon… a little one.” Dusty, “get a dragon… we have tons of them.

Utah artists, Ben Byrd, “make sure you walk the entire floor, look at all the artists. Make sure you’re looking at all the tables,  you could miss something really cool…

Local wood knot artisan, Shawn Wilson with W.K. Wilson, “...must go down the dealer alley because there is some cool dang stuff here…”

The Truffle Cottage Blair, “come to the Truffle Cottage obviously… eat their favorite super hero or villian…” Jennie, “if you haven’t been by the Truffle Cottage it’s the one place you can get your sweetest piece of fandom…” AND from Blair “go and play Dungeons and Dragons like a cool person.”

Utah Author, David J West, “…i say take in as many of the people as you can.. all the freaks come out at night.” AHOY! (and we don’t think he got Jessica’s cosplay)

ABC 4 Utah camera man, Greg, “…come to comic con in a costume because that is the best part

Utah Artists, Heather Dixon, “… definitely get the candied nuts and take picture of your favorite cos-play because you never know when you’ll see them again

Cosplayer kid, Jake from State Farm, “get Pokemon stuff, cause Pokemon is lit...”

Cosplayers King Arthur and Patsy (which it was actually the DAD that was Patsy and daughter who was the King), “have fun and find what you want and seek it out…” (get it… find your grail…)

Episode 84 We wish we were 12: Stand Wars Comic Book Creation

Standard

Sometimes we get to reach outside Utah and bring people into the fold! This week for episode 84 we were contacted by the artists who did our podcast caricature, Art Dimes. Made up of the team of Emmy-nominated story-board and FX artist Jeff West and entrepreneur/mouth piece/artist Trey McCoy. Both currently based out of Arizona, we were fortunate to have them Skype in with us to tell us about an amazing project they have coming up!

We met Art Dimes at Salt Lake Comic Con a year and a half ago. We were looking for someone that would make us look super fun and capture who we were in a nutshell. We think they did a pretty swell job. We sure hope to see them back again this year and we will make sure to show them around the Utah we’ve all know and love!

Chris, Jessica, Bre, and Jeremy

A year ago, Jeff and Trey partnered up with 12 year-old Ozzy Passin, yes a 12 year-old folks, to help bring his comic book story to fruition! Ozzy is based in NYC and had a vision for Stand Wars to come to life. Stand Wars is about a dream to make it to a video game competition. The journey getting there, the experiences with bullying, and other pre-teen adventures. Jeff and Trey have been assisting in the art work as well as web design, promotion, and the upcoming Kickstarter (which we will add to this as soon as it goes live). We tried to get them to give us some upcoming work but it’s all a secret! So more to come from Art Dimes for sure! We will keep you updated as it comes down the pipeline.

We can’t imagine being 12 and having the support that Jeff and Trey have been offering to Ozzy to make his dream come true by creating Stand Wars.

Plus, who doesn’t love friends that meet through tacos?

If you are looking for animation, art work, story-boarding, etc. you can reach out to them at www.artdimes.com and sign up for their newsletter. Make sure to follow them over on Facebook and Instagram creating art!

While visiting James Fowler, found of Sugar House Distillery, for episode 68 we asked him what his one thing someone visiting Utah should be? James said to visit the Delicate Arch in Moab and hike it. He said that it represents our state.

Utah’s One Thing: Trent Hunsaker founder of Death Ray Media

Standard

At the end of every New Utah interview we like to ask our guests, “What is the one thing that you would tell someone visiting Utah they had to do before leaving?”

Utah is a big place and sometimes we like to go outside the Wasatch Front and find amazing people. Episode 67 brought us Trent Hunsaker all the way from northern Utah, aka: Logan. He is the founder of Death Ray Media, host of the Smodcast, host of Show us your Wits, host of Death Ray wrestling podcast and A Part of Him Podcast Network. Trent said the one thing he would tell someone visiting Utah that they had to do before leaving would be to talk to some Mormon Missionaries. Yep, there you have it folks, we never thought we would hear that. However, Trent says that it gives an abrupt and shocking perspective of the culture.

Episode 64 was full of girl power with activist and attorney, Kate Kelly. The first thing Kate said is that Utah always lures her back no matter where she goes. The one thing that Kate Kelly said someone visiting Utah should do before leaving is to go skiing! She suggested Deer Valley Resort.

Kate also said that if you are visiting Utah you should also stop by Gilgal Gardens, which we did a feature on, and eat at All Chay which is a local Utah vegan/vegetarian eatery. There is a great write up on All Chay on: Amanda Eats SLC and on SLUG magazines food reviews!

Utah’s One Thing: Jeff of Mountain West Cider

Standard

At the end of every New Utah interview we like to ask our guests, “What is the one thing that you would tell someone visiting Utah they had to do before leaving?”

Previously we were joined by Jen of Mountain West Cider in episode 18 but this time, for episode 63, we were able to ask Jeff the other owner of Mountain West Cider what his one thing someone visiting Utah should do! Jeff said to check out the craft brewing scene in Utah. He also said go to church. As in go to the Tabernacle at Temple Square and check out the flowers in the spring or the lights in the winter. Jeff said that Salt Lake City is to the Mormon church like Rome is to the Vatican. We think he has a point. We also love putting brewing and the LDS church SLC temple grounds in the same entry!

Mormonnewroom.org Mormonism in Pictures

MormonNewsRoom.Org Time Lapse Video of Lights on Temple Square

Only in your State has a great list but there are a couple missing like Proper Brewing and RoHa Brewing to name a couple!

We did a list on episode 58 about the Brewery on the ByWay from the Salt Lake Tribune that has many of Salt Lake City’s brewers locations in downtown Salt Lake.
