Episode 85 Don’t flush those pills down the toilet!

Standard

Sometimes we get to have shows that are just us being silly and talking about the Utah we love. Unfortunately our guest had to have emergency surgery, so we will have reschedule with Herbalist Josh, but we promise when he comes on it will be pretty much amazing!

Our lessons learned this week include that Chris is a total wuss when it comes to pain. We learned about the continued love of LivePD by Chris. We also learned that opiod addiction runs pretty deep in our communities and there has to be a way to change this. We have all be prescribed a pain killer from a surgery, a fall, a broken bone, dental work, etc. When you are done with it, what do you do? Do you know what to do with it? Intermountain Health care has some steps HERE for getting rid of your expired and unused medications. And please, don’t flush them!

Did you know Utah is thriving with YA authors!? We did. We’ve had local authors Eliza Crosby and David J. West on our show. Even Jessica’s cousin Callie Kanno is a YA author and just released her newest book, Flame Singer.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What else did we learn? That in Utah we have an amazing company called “Peaceful Pet Departures.” As you know, Chris and Bre lost their sweet Lia a couple weeks ago. Peaceful Pet Departures were there for their family from beginning to way after. If you are in need of letting go of a pet in a peaceful way, we highly suggest reaching out to them. They are a local Utah company with huge hearts.

For the record, Jessica is NOT making human hand-pies like Sweeney Todd.

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!

Utah’s One Thing: Salt Lake Comic Con 2017 edition

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?”

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…)

Utah’s One Thing: James Fowler founder of Sugar House Distillery

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?”

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. James said, “with visitors every day it is easy to get negative about the laws, but it’s easy to talk about the beauty.

Click on the picture for some great advice if you plan to hike the Delicate Arch in Moab:

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.

Standard

Happy End of 2017! It seemed like this year went so fast but at the same time it was never going to end. Our final show of the year (episode 83) we wanted to attend to part 2 of our City Weekly Best of 2017 recap: The Readers Edition! You can catch our run through of the staff picks on episode 77.

We still stand firm with our statement from last year, We do not approve of people voting for corporate stores that aren’t based in Utah. We have plenty of awesome locals. We also want to add to this; hey readers, there are PLENTY of amazing places and people in Utah that you are missing out on because you are voting for the same place every year. *coughCafeRiocough* *coughCupBopcough* *coughWaffleLovecough* One of the things we really love is that City Weekly includes a cool space in each county in Utah every year.

We at the New Utah Podcast extend a challenge to you for 2018, Expand your Utah horizons! Use these lists as a guide and get to know Utah a little bit more intimately! *covering eyes*

The magazines are not available anymore, however, you can find the link HERE and you can scroll on your phone while you are in your bathroom to get inspired for your next Utah adventure. Use this list to explore a part of Utah you might not have thought of visiting. Restaurants you may have not thought about eating at. Parks you haven’t visited. Artists you haven’t admired their work yet. And so on. Take a listen to this weeks episode, we definitely covered our loves, what we thought should be added, and what we were confused made the list.

We would love to hear what you would add to the ballot!

This week we also said goodbye to one of our podcast buddies, Chris and Bre’s dog, Lia. She joined us for many episodes and waited out the door patiently for us to finish recording many episodes. She will be missed.
