Episode 66 Gender Equality. Dead Last. Thanks Utah.


Episode 66 brought to you by Chris and his gambling tips.

Did you read that Utah ranked on WalletHub DEAD LAST, yep you read that correctly, dead last in gender equality. But of course, we’re not totally surprised. They ranked Utah based on 1. Equal treatment in workplace environment, 2. Education and health, 3. Political empowerment. You can read HERE about the rankings and where else Utah falls on areas such as share of lawmakers, doctor affordability, and math scores. If you could only see us shaking our heads, but this is a podcast so of course you can’t.

Sometimes we like to find lists of awesome things about Utah, and sometimes not so awesome. This week we ran down (ha, see what we did there) the most dangerous intersections for pedestrians. Good thing Jeremy and Bre made it out alive!

We also found a great list of 60 Cool and Unusual things to do in Utah! We said, count us in! So we started breaking it down for you. We will make sure to do a few until we run out.  What is your favorite unusual thing in Utah? How many of these did you know about! We love these lists always have some new Utah treasures. And many of them could be something to do if you’re visiting Utah.


Halloween EXPO tickets are on sale!! Join us and them on October 13-15th at the Southtowne Expo center for a fun pre-Halloween show. Events such as the hair battle, cast from Face Off, and cosplay contest are BACK! (PS. this is NOT A CONVENTION)

Utah’s One Thing: New Utah Host, Jeremy


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?”

The New Utah Podcast recently celebrated our 1 year anniversary! Episode 52 we each thought we should do our “one thing” someone visiting Utah should do before leaving!

Jeremy didn’t hesitate in offering up Utah’s ghost towns as the one thing that people should do when visiting Utah. There are plenty to explore. Some in ruins and some still standing. With a list of over 50 they span the entire state! You can take a day trip or make a weekend of it!

Ep.16 Every day is Halloween…


Episode 16 is buzzing into your ears… 16 means we missed celebrating our quinceanera! There wasn’t even cake…  This past week there was an adventure in apiculture and it proved to be quite bounteous for Josh and Jeremy!


Last weekend we were honored to be invited into the DINK studios owned by Kerry Jackson. Kerry is one of the hosts of Radio From Hell on local station x96. He is also one of the founding members of Geek Show podcast. It was great to talk to him about chickens, toys, and crazy family members. Part 1 of our interview is in this weeks podcast. Kerry, Thanks for letting us listen!!

We highly suggest that you Do NOT “Fuggedaboutit”(enter gratuitous eye roll here)… that is the Festa Ialiana! We may be in Utah but we have some amazing Italian restaurants and traditions that will be represented this weekend at the Gateway on the 16th and 17th.

Another groundbreaking event that is going into its 4th year, is the Provo Pride Festival. We were joined by the sassy pin-up,  Miss Feral Ann Wilde, who was a former member on the board of trustee’s and was the first reigning Righteous Miss Provo in 2013! This event was created in the super conservative town of Provo to create inclusion for a community that often feels excluded. Events kick off on Friday the 16th and the festival continues Saturday the 17th. This weekend also brings your monthly Drag Brunch at Club X on the 18th!


Ok, now come in close and listen up! We promise that it’s not to early for Halloween talk! The New Utah Podcast was excited to be joined this week by the creators and minds behind Utah’s first Halloween Expo and Show. We are telling you now, this isn’t your mom’s Halloween craft show AND to add on top of the awesomeness, we got a “you heard it first” moment when they announced that contestants from SyFy’s FaceOff would be joining their event! This Halloween event will bring animatronics, Halloween hair battles, workshops, paranormal guests, and MORE! We can’t even begin to tell you the magic that Jason, Ryan and their team  have been putting together for Utah. We cannot wait to have them back!

The event runs October 14-16th and tickets are on sale now at UtahHalloweenExpoandShow.com
