Episode 72 Talk Your Crazy with Ry from the Sky

Standard

IT’S HERE! This weekend is the 2nd Annual Halloween Expo and we are excited to be part of it again!

What do you get when you mix three water signs with a fire sign?

Last year at this time we had Ryan Butterfield with us representing the Halloween Expo as one of the producers. This year we invited him to talk about his brand new website and his new venture into readings and as a reiki master. Ryan walked us through the technical terms of a psychic vs. medium. Ryan shared with us some experiences he had over the years that have encouraged him to pursue honing his gift as a medium. We learned that pet reiki exists. Ryan has recently launched a website, RyFromTheSky, and has plenty of events booked the next few weeks, including the Halloween Expo, which he will be making an appearance with M&L Paranormal Investigations.

Ryan is available for events, parties, and personal readings. Ryan did take some time to read us, for as much as you can in an hour with 4 people!

For what it’s worth, he does NOT want to be your life coach.

We are still wondering… how does one leave a 3 year old behind in a corn maze and not realize it til 12 hours later? We took some time to discuss this madness. Yes, this little Utah story has officially made national news. *hanging head in shame*

Episode 67 Trent Hunsaker hates circus peanuts.

Standard

The world might be on fire, flooding, and without power but we’re still here!

The New Utah Podcast was honored to have veteran podcaster/producer, Trent Hunsaker, on the show this week. You may know him best from his Pub Trivia podcast, Show Us your Wits, which is Utah’s only pub trivia podcast! Trent records Show us Your Wits at the Beehive Pub and Grill in Logan (with the best gelato in Utah). Perhaps you have seen him on a panel or moderating a panel at Salt Lake Comic Con. Or maybe you have been to his comic book store in Logan Utah, Death Ray Comics, which has unfortunately closed. Regardless, one thing we know, Trent hates circus peanuts.

Trent gave us an insight to being part of panels at Salt Lake Comic Con. With the event so close, it was pretty rad to hear what he would like to see more and less of. The idea of having more one on one panels and a greater range of fandom topics were definitely on our list of improvements for Comic Con as well. Trent also broke it down for us for how he got involved with Kevin Smith’s Smodcast. Sometimes picking up a phone and making a call is what you need to do. We also learned that he loves wrestling, Popeye’s chicken, and fried cheeseburgers from Wyoming. He and Chris are bonded for life. Trent is involved in many different projects. You can go to Trents panels at Salt Lake Comic Con September 21-23rd. You can hear him on Show us Your Wits, Death Ray Comics, Death Ray wrestling, and on NetHeads On-Air Podcast ! Besides his podcasts, Trent is best found on the Twitter and on Instagram and at Death Ray Media.

Episode 59 Red Rover, Red Rover Send Dylan right over

Standard

Episode 59 we were visited by local podcaster and creator, Dylan Mazziotti. Dylan is the creative director (aka the owner) at Lennon Design and the host and producer of Your Cre8tivity podcast. We switched it up a little this time, we had New Utah Podcast alumn, Stephen Hatch, send us the questions! We learned about apartment living, why he wanted to start his own graphic design company (which is very successful and you probably know more of their logo’s than you thought), and how a blog evolved into a podcast!  We even got to be asked a question this time!

Here is the link to the new Japanese Interment Camp museum in Topaz. If you get a chance to go hours are 11-5pm daily Monday-Saturday. There is no admission but please, we implore you to leave a donation. It took a long time to get this museum constructed.

Episode 58 Hippos are Fast and Dangerous too!

Standard
Since it was the 4th of July, we decided to just have a show to ourselves. Greedy, aren’t we!?

The festivities are done for a couple weeks til we circle ’round to the 24th of  July or Pie and Beer day as we like to celebrate!

This week we talked about marijuana being sold in Nevada legally now. Which not sure what the big deal is, our east side neighbor has already been doing it! Jason Chaffetz is FINALLY out of his Senate seat. Praise the wee baby Jesus.

With many of our Utah breweries recently winning awards, and because we love our local liquor and brewers, episode 58 we did a run through of the Brewers Byway that Kathy Stephenson – The Salt Lake Tribune reported on. We are lucky to have an influx of craft beers in Utah and each of them add something unique to the Utah brewing community!

Here are links to each Brewery on the Byway…
West Side Tavern (Utah Brewers Coop)

And no… Jessica’s vagina still doesn’t talk… as far as we know.

Episode 56 Tribe Rejects and the Homelessness culture in Utah

Standard
Occasionally we need to ground ourselves and talk on a bit more serious level. We haven’t done that really since the election season.

For episode 56  Aaron Bryant sat down with us for a chat about his past, Salt Lake City’s homeless community and his own personal experiences with that “tribe,” and his new job with Inspiro Recovery. Aaron has taken a job as the clinical director for the upcoming recovery center, Inspiro Recovery, which will be opening in mid-July.

Inspiro Recovery is taking a different approach than other recovery/rehab centers in Utah by focusing on peer recovery services. We think that it will be a great addition to our state which is reported to have one of the highest rates of opioid addiction among other addictions.

 

inspiro recover mission

We have talked a lot about the homeless epidemic in Utah over the last few months because of the rapid increase. Aaron was able to give us a very unique perspective on addiction and Utah’s homeless situation. He shared with us his own story of addiction and recovery. From the lowest low to now carrying two master’s degrees. Aaron is in long term recovery and is the author of the memoir, Synchronous Memoir of Addiction and Recovery, which illustrates his journey in recovery, and his passion to support individuals in making positive life transformations. His book is still available!

 

If you know someone that is in need or you yourself are in need of the services of Inspiro Recovery, please reach out to 888-I-GOT-HOPE.

 

Events This week!
Thyme and Place Concrete Container workshop on the 24th
Utah Arts Festival starts Today through the 25th
Big Shiny Robot Nerd Swap on the 25th
Nick Passey at Urban Lounge on the 25th

Episode 55. On the Day that I Died.

Standard
Sometimes it’s nice to get out of the studio and go record off-site! This week we joined producer, Hraefn Wulfson. Director Chuck Waagen, and actor Dutch Van Der Laan at McGrew Studios to talk about their upcoming film, On the Day that I Died.

On the Day that I Died is a passion project for Director Chuck Waagen. They have been working on filming for the past year and a half. Their budget is minimal (on purpose) and they are utilizing the mad skills of set designer, Hraefn Wulfson and Jen Mcgrew, and of course, the beauty of Utah. Without giving too much away, On the Day that I Died “follows a desperate man who, as a result his own selfish impulsive action (suicide) finds himself in a foreign and surreal world which he doesn’t understand; challenging him to make sense of this strange realm, inhabited by even stranger people, and come to terms with the reason he decided to end his life in the first place.

And who doesn’t love a life size armadillo? We are excited to see this movie come to fruition and if you would like to donate, or be part of the film, please reach out to us and we can get you in contact with the crew!

McGrew Studios is know for its paranormal activity and Hraefn took us on a tour of the studios after the show and we may have a lot to talk about next week!!

Utah’s One Thing: Nick Passey

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?”

Local Utah solo artist and guitarist for Folk Hogan, Nick Passey, visited our studio for episode 37. Nick suggested that the one thing that people visiting Utah should do is get into the sub-culture and find like minded people. Visit clubs, find the music scene, and drink Utah Alcohol.

Episode 38 We are NOT talking Republican, we promise.

Standard

Our show started with FINALLY getting to try Jessica’s famous omelettes!

This week on The New Utah Podcast we didn’t schedule a guest because sometimes we just like to hear ourselves talk. We spent some time talking about our legislature and what is going on up on “the hill.”Are you aware of the bills that are being talked about and going through session? We are trying to keep you up to date on as many as we can. What ones are important to you?

Do you think Utah can keep the Outdoor Retailers?

We also touched, with a 10 foot pole, the Jason Chaffetz town hall. That is the only kind of pole he should be touched with. Have you sent your invoice to him for your wasted time at the town hall?
