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*

Utah’s One Thing: Dylan Mazziotti of Your Cre8tivity Podcast and Lennon Design

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?”

Dylan Mazziotti of Lennon Design and the Cre8tivity Podcast joined us for episode 59. Dylan said that the one thing that someone visiting Utah must do before leaving is to check out Utah’s local comedians at the WiseGuys Comedy Club.

Episode 70 Even Salt Lake Comic Con is lit… or something like that.

Standard

While Jeremy is enjoying some Disneyland magic…

Episode 70 Chris, Bre, and Jessica give a recap and share some interviews that The New Utah Podcast did this week at Salt Lake Comic Con with our new fancy mic!

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 MormonGo through the whole thing, it’s going to take a long time, so wear good shoes. The place is big.”

Utah Author, Johnny WorthenGo to a panel you have no interest in, to find out what you are missing. Stretch your interestsGet 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…)

The Cosplay was unreal as always, we have an amazingly creative community! Here are some of the highlights …

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 66 Gender Equality. Dead Last. Thanks Utah.

Standard

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.

Events:

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)

Swiss Days in Midway 1-5th

Sheep Dog Championship at Soldier Hollow 1-4th (make sure to go early in the weekend, everything does sell out!)

Folk Hogan Friday night at the Ice Haus with Murphy the Giant.

Righteous Miss Provo Pageant 3rd in Provo. Go support the local drag community in Provo!

By the way.. Jessica still might hate kids, just a little bit.

Utah’s One Thing: Aaron Bryant, Clinical director at Inspiro Recovery Utah

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?”

Aaron Bryant, clinical counselor, author, and boxing instructor, joined us for episode 56! Aaron’s one thing he said someone visiting Utah should do before leaving is to go rockhounding! Head out to the middle of nowhere and you will be able to find old rocks and old mines all over Utah! Here is a list from the Utah Geological Survey (click on the picture for the links). You can also find sites through Google as well. Utah is known for topaz, geodes, quarts, obsidian, and gypsum just to name a few!

Episode 65 When Cosplay goes Viral: The Real Finn

Standard

The force was strong with episode 65! Victor Sine, AKA The Real Finn, joined us to talk about moving to Utah, a bit of white privilege, and of course what happens when you go viral because your cosplay is SO ON POINT!

A year-and-a-half ago Victor, Julianne, and her little one dressed up as Finn, Rey, and BB-8 (aka Baby8). Before they even got to the convention people were taking pictures and dropping their jaws. There was not one moment at Salt Lake Comic Con that year that they weren’t busy taking pictures. Then they broke the internet and went internationally viral. Covered by everyone from Entertainment Weekly and StarWars.com to Buzzfeed. Victor has continued to do cosplay including: The Black Panther, Green Lantern, and his upcoming Static Shock appearance as well as a few others in the works. He had some great up’s and downs of doing cosplay for us. When Victor is not being nerdy and a viral superstar, he is being a real life superhero by doing research for Alzheimer’s.

Episode 64 Kate Kelly is not her struggle…

Standard

You’re not your struggle. You can engage but you are a separate person.” –Kate Kelly

This week we were joined by attorney, activist, feminist, and all around phenomenal person; Kate Kelly.

You may know her as the former head and creator of Ordain Women who was violently ex-communicated from the LDS (Mormon) church. BUT we wanted to delve deeper because frankly she’s talked that subject to death and she has SO much more to say. We had an opportunity to talk to her about her upcoming law firm she will be opening(G.I.R.L.), her wiki page, her continued work on a book about slave breeding and how it shaped our country, her definition of being a feminist, and we got pretty passionate about Planned Parenthood with her. Excuse the emotions.  Kate has so much on her plate and her passion runs deep. And if the politics of it all are too much, you  may just love someone who loves mid-century modern, she’s fun to follow!

Oh! And we’re all in agreement that Orrin Hatch will be dying in office. Wah-wah…

You can follow her and get involved through her Twitter , her Instagram, or her Facebook. You can also find her at http://www.katekellyesq.com/

Episode 63 Hard Cider in Utah

Standard

The New Utah Podcast was honored to be invited to record at Mountain West Cidery this week! It seems like it was just yesterday that Jen, co-owner, joined us for episode 18! This time we got Jeff, also an owner, and Jess their marketing guru!

First things first. Did you know that in Utah cider is classified as a wine? Yea, we didn’t either and it’s kind of dumb. The only way to change these silly laws is to get in with the legislative sessions like Jeff has been doing! If you are interested in helping, just reach out to them. Mountain West Cider is heavily involved in the community, which we love, and are currently wrapping up their second year of Gay Ruby for Utah Pride celebration. After we spoke to Jen last year they introduced Desolation to their line up, proceeds from bottle sells support the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance. This bottling brings them to four; 7 Mile, Ruby, Desolation, and Cottonwood. They are working on a second release of Stillwater, which is their hard cider aged in High Whiskey barrels for 6 months! Yum! They are getting ready for their second annual 4th West Oktoberfest at the end of September, doing quarterly gallery strolls with local artists, an upcoming partnership with Subaru, and a third Thursday of the month exercise and cider night! They also book events at their space if you are interested.

Partnering again with Green Urban Lunch Box, look for their bottling this fall of their second edition mash up of apples! You can find them on ALL the social media’s; Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and now SnapChat!

EVENTS:

Hang on to your beards!! Our friends from Olio Skin and Beard Co. are presenting this years 4th Annual Beard and mustache competition at Snowbird to kick of Oktoberfest!

Craft Lake City will be in full swing at the Gallivan Center this weekend.
