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 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!

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?
