Episode 88 No One Wants to be Victimized by a Wig

Standard

*Enter pageant wave here*

This week newly reigning Miss Gay Utah and current reigning 2017 Miss Gay Central States America, Miss Gia Bianca Stephens and her alter-ego Ted Nicholls, joined us for a lesson in drag pageantry, cleared up some misconceptions, and gave us some herstory on Gia’s start.

We know that not everyone might be familiar with what defines a drag queen vs say a transvestite, or someone who is transgender. Gia reminded us that the term “drag” comes from Shakespeare “Dress Resembling A Girl,” because once upon a time men played both roles on stage. Also a reminder that drag isn’t a sexual orientation but merely an art form.

Gia Bianca Stephens has made a name for herself in the Utah drag and performance community. Gia was integral in starting Beauties on Broadway Brunch, Ladies of Marmalade with one of our alumnus Indi Skies, she had traveled the country competing in numerous pageants, and she helped start one of Utah’s first drag pageants; Miss Great Beehive State Premier. Listening to Gia talk about Utah’s drag community, it is true, we really do have something special here with the variety of talent. We don’t want to give away too much of the interview, but we learned a lot, so you should listen and learn too!

We can’t wait to see how she does again at Miss Gay America when she decides to compete again. Follow and support Gia Bianca Stephens on her Facebook and Instagram to see where her next performances and pageants lead her! And TIP… THIS… QUEEN!

This week we are so excited to announce the grand opening of The Truffle Cottage’s store front! They will be having a grand opening February 3rd at 11am at 45 S Main Street in Pleasant Grove!

Utah’s One Thing: Jennifer Jones author of The Dead History

Standard

At the end of every New Utah Podcast 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 76 we were joined by author and researcher, Jennifer Jones of The Dead History and “Ghosts of Ogden, Brigham City, and Logan.” Jennifer is a transport to Utah and lives in the northern half of Utah so we asked her what her one thing she would tell someone visiting Utah they had to do before leaving! Jennifer said, head to 25th Street in Ogden! She said it is a unique part of history and there is really no place like 25th Street.

We agree! We even head that Al Capone wouldn’t step foot there.

Visit Ogden has a list of 25 things to do on 25th Street!

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?”

Knowing your cigar heros is what Kendrick is about. Episode 61 Kendrick said that the one thing someone visiting Utah should do would be go to one of Utah’s Microbreweries, one of his personal favorites is the Bohemian Brewery. Of course he also said make sure to find the cigar culture! Beehive Cigars offers events all through the year. You can check out their events on their event page at BeehiveCigars.com.

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 69 Even Al Capone doesn’t want to walk through Ogden Utah.

Standard

Rams, penis cakes, and bad teen drivers… OH MY!

Welcome to episodes 69. *enter inappropriate giggle here* This week we spent some time talking about Utah’s best chocolate based on a list from KSL. We were baffled that our friends at The Truffle Cottage got left out! Good news is, you can find them at Salt Lake Comic Con ALL weekend. We suggest the Harry Potter Vials or the Star Trek Salted Caramels.

We were suppose to be joined by co-founder of the Utah Halloween Expo, Jason Hogan, but life does happen. They are awesome enough that they sent over a run down of all of the events and workshops that will be happening October 13-15th at the Southtowne Expo Center.

We will be there! Get your tickets now!!

This week we also took a walk through old Ogden courtesy of Only in Your State. Did you know at one time it was so sketchy that even Al Capone said he wouldn’t walk through the town? Do you know anyone who has been through the tunnels?
