Episode 80 Art Activism, Gas Masks, and Poop.

Standard

You know it’s going to be a great episode when the guest starts out by saying they will gladly talk about how many times they poop and masturbate in a day. And when Chris tries his hand at an Irish accent. And when Jessica ruins the episode by talking about what we weren’t suppose to talk about.

This week we were honored to be joined by art activist and photographer, Cat Palmer! You may know her as the artist that re-created Leonardo’s Last Supper, but with amazing people in Utah. This past weekend you may recognize her “Go Home Trump” and “Dump Trump” installation from the Utah State Capitol pre Trump visit. Let’s help her make it viral by sharing and crediting her work!

Cat gave us insight to her inspirations, her love of gas masks, an upcoming project that she has been working to make happen, and of course, her rad mom!

Oh, and in case you were wondering, she doesn’t shoot landscapes.

Here is a list of some of her favorite locals:

Olio Skin and Beard Co.

Tin Angel

Frida’s Bistro

Zest Kitchen and Bar

Blind Dog

Two Bit Street Cafe

Water Witch Bar

Lake Effect

CM Ceramics

Jimmi Toro

Cat also let us know that she doesn’t attach her name with organizations, even though she is very active in the activist community. However, she is very passionate about Salt Lake Clean air. They have their Winter Solstice Salt Lake Clean Air Fundraiser on Dec. 17th

You can pick up Cats work on her website CATPALMER.com, at the Urban Arts Gallery, and the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art. You can find her on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter!

And a big thanks for James for letting us use his house!

Episode 79 Driving your feel goods with the Dude.

Standard

Episode 79 was filled with SO much information it is hard to pick where to begin.

This week we had activist/volunteer/former Mayoral candidate/veteran and just a dude, Josh Cameron, sit down and have an in-depth discussion with us. We trampled on politics, the political climate, his service in the military, why he leans the way he does politically, his activism throughout Utah, and of course his Jay and Silent Bob drinking game! What more could one ask for in a visit?

**DISCLAIMER: If puke stories gross you out, you might want to skip this one. Between Josh and Chris’s hot car drinking stories, well, maybe just don’t eat before listening?

Josh’s passion for politics haven’t been jaded by his drinking games. He is doing what many protestors out there are not doing and that is acting. He ran a campaign for West Valley Mayor, he is involved in the WOLF-PAC (and we don’t mean like the kind in the movie, The Hangover), he is a precinct chair for the Democratic Party in his district, and he is strategically thinking about his next role in our community. He does have a day job too, doing research with USTAR. Josh is currently volunteering with a new app called, Our Voice Initiative, which is a space where candidates anywhere in the country can get their policies, ideas, and issues uploaded. Voters can then take a quiz based on policies and then they can make a more educated vote, versus just voting for a candidate. You can find Josh on Twitter, his YouTube channel, and on Facebook

We look forward to having Josh back as the mid-term elections roll around. Our reminder, it is super important to vote for local candidates over our POTUS. Start small.

Standard

Music by local Utah Band:Last year we had so much fun going through all the picks for City Weekly’s Best Of Utah edition that we are back at it! This year’s magazine is gorgeous! We loved that it was a separate magazine from the actual publication.

This week we went through our personal favorite’s on the staff picks list for 2017! Even if you don’t agree with the places or people that were picked, the write-up’s alone are worth reading!

There are WAY too many favorites for us to post, so you will just have to listen this week!

Utah’s One Thing: Chris Provost Dad Joke Teller and Salt Lake Comic Con MC

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?”

Episode 60 we had the honor of hosting the host of all hosts, Salt Lake Comic Con and dad joke teller, Chris Provost! Chris had a couple of things in mind when we asked him what the one thing he would tell people visiting Utah would be. First he said you have to try fry sauce. Fry sauce is a Utah staple! Sometimes it is just ketchup and mayo mixed together. Sometimes there might be a little pickle juice or spice added to it. Chris also said do donuts in the winter in an empty parking lot, and in the summer time go down “I Street” in the Avenues as fast as you can. He promises you will get some air. His final thing that someone must do while visiting Utah would be, is to visit Zion. He said seeing it for the first time will make you lose your breath.

Episode 75 Utah Anime Banzai Adventures

Standard

Wrapping up our visit to the Utah Halloween Expo, we share our interview with Demented Design Studios this episode! They came all the way from New Orleans to the Utah Halloween Expo and they brought some of their amazing props. From clowns, to big old slabs of meat (which were used in Constantine), and hanging flesh, to face pies!!! We loved talking to them while they were in town and we sure hope they come back because they were an amazing asset to the expo!

Episodes 75 also took us, a bunch of noobs, to the Utah Anime Banzai in Layton, Utah! This was their 13th year as Utah’s premier anime convention. We were super excited to be there and wasn’t quite sure what to expect! To give you a lay of the land, the convention center is rather small, which is nice because it makes it an intimate event. There are panels, a gaming room, an artists room, rooms where they are showing anime films and shows, and a huge cosplay contest just to name a few of the events.

We had a chance to talk to one of the head volunteers/staff to get an idea of the size and why they do what they do. Walking around the event we noticed that about 85% of the patrons were dressed up! So awesome to see a community so tight knit, even though all the anime they were there for is different. Lo and behold we also ran into our favorite cosplay-er, Victor Sine! It was fun to chat with him for a minute. Having a podcast room at the Anime Banzai made us feel super important. We tested out some Japanese treats like mochi, some custard buns, and gummie candies. Last year we met the super talented and busy movie/tv script supervision and prop designer, Crit Killen. We finally got to sit down with him for a moment and talk to him about some of his projects! With over 85 film projects under his belt, we can’t wait to have him back to go more in depth. We are so excited he is local!

Episode 73: Our Adventures at the Utah Halloween Expo 2017 Part 1

Standard

Welcome to part one of our adventures at the Utah Halloween Expo and Show 2017! We were so grateful we were asked to come back to podcast at the show for their second annual show. This year the floor was bigger, our favorite SY-FY Channel Face Off guests were back, and we even went on a paranormal investigation with local team M&L Paranormal! (that episode will air soon)

Local Utah Author, Eliza Crosby, gave us some of her time. She talked to us about her first book, “Murder on the Pitch.” How she wrote two paranormal books based on local lore, “Whispers of Minersville” and “Curse of the Lost Love: Return to Minersville.” Eliza also gave us a glimpse into writing “The Eyeball Mysteries” and following her son around to get a feel of a pre-teenage boys life.

Some of our favorite highlights this year included David Ace’s Faces. David is a local custom mask maker based in northern Utah. Make sure you check him out, and yes, he does take orders on his Etsy Shop!

We sat through hair battles, local FX make-up competition, and our favorites guests from Sy-Fy’s Face-Off! This year Mel Licata, Ben Peter, and New Utah Podcast alum Yvonne Cox sat down with us and talked about coming back to Utah and being part of the UHE again. Of course we can’t forget one of our all time favorite Germans, Robert Lindsay! He did his interview with us in full make-up! Robert talked to us about his trip to China to teach special effects make-up and his love for karaoke!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We will be getting our investigation and the rest of our interviews up over the next couple weeks! STAY TUNED!

Episode 68 Non-Alcoholic Beer… No one wants it.

Standard

First of all, we at the New Utah Podcast, do NOT endorse giving booze to homeless.

This week we got to take a tour at Sugarhouse Distillery! We started off our night with owner, James Fowler, giving us a tour through the process of production for their vodka, rum, and bourbon/whiskey. Then he sat down with us in his shop and chatted with us. Did you know that Sugarhouse Distillery was one of the first 3 distilleries to open in Utah after the prohibition!? They are also a grain to glass distillery. What is that you ask? Take a listen. James gives a list of other local distillers that are also on the grain to glass list. He does apologize if he left anyone out. Mic pressure you know.

Sugarhouse Distillery is very unique in Utah. James outsources his grains from local farmers down in Delta, up in Brigham City, as well as other cities. If he has used all local he can then he reaches out of state. The farmers have even developed a relationship in that they have started to grow in the off season for him as well.  We love that this distillery understands the importance of local and the importance of the purity of their product.

Sugarhouse Distillery is in the process of going through a re-branding and bottles are starting to leave their production line this week! Hopefully they should be on shelves in the liquor stores soon. This also means it’s a good time to scoop up the old flat bottles! (collectors items you know!)

Follow them on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter to stay up to date with new product releases and specials.

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!

Utah’s One Thing: Producer/Set Designer, Hraefn Wulfson, On The Day That I Died.

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?”

Although Hraefn has previously (episode 20) been a guest, we decided for episode 55 to give him another One thing!! This time Hraefn said that his one thing he would tell people visiting Utah to do before leaving is to “take a holistic approach to Salt Lake City.” He suggested to rent a bike with the SLC bike share program. Hraefn says to go through each of Salt Lake’s communities; City Hall, Pioneer Park, Liberty Park, etc.
