Utah’s One Thing: New Utah Host, Chris

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?”

The New Utah Podcast celebrated our 1 year anniversary recently. During episode 52 we each thought we should do our “one thing” someone visiting Utah should do before leaving! Chris said that someone visiting Utah should head to The Chocolate. They have two locations, one in Orem and one in West Jordan.

Chris was very specific that you must visit the West Jordan location. He also said that you need to try skiing and/or snowboarding, cause Utah!

Utah’s One Thing: New Utah Host, Bre

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?”

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

Bre had a hard time coming up with her one thing. After a little poking and prodding, she came up with the perfect one thing! While someone is visiting Utah, Bre said they must make it to a Real Salt Lake game! This is perfect because Bre and Chris spend their soccer season cheering and supporting Utah’s own MLS team, win or lose.

So if you believe, just stand up on your feet… we’re here for RSL!

Utah’s One Thing: Melinda Meservy of Thyme and Place

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?”

Of course we get a lot of the same answers on the one thing that people should do in Utah before leaving, because yes, we are known for Temple Square, our National Parks, and the mountains. When Melinda of Thyme and Place joined us for our year end episode 52, she brought to the table that someone visiting Utah needs to try some High West Whiskey! We couldn’t agree more. If you get a chance head up to the distillery, but if not you can get it at most, if not all, local restaurants and bars that serve alcohol! She did also throw in there to head south as well, but we know that is a given!

Utah’s One Thing: Tami Steggell of RubySnap

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 50 we had the extraordinary Tami Steggell, the owner and cookie architect, at RubySnap. Of course the one thing you should do when visiting Utah is to visit her shop and have some cookies! However, Tami said her one thing is to head to Emigration Canyon.  We guess that can be second best to her cookies!

Episode 52: ALL Roads Indeed Lead to Peter!

Standard

Happy Anniversary to Us!

000f7deb0a3f507e3b15d8765c8aab02

Episode 52 is the end of our first year. We can’t say thank you enough to everyone that has participated and been excited to be part of The New Utah Podcast. We have so many amazing people in Utah and we look forward to a new year of meeting more!

For our end of year show we were joined by the lovely Melinda, who is the owner and brain behind Thyme and Place. Melinda chatted with us about her journey from the corporate world (literally) to a passion for plants. If you need to incorporate plants into your home and are afraid of killing them, don’t worry, she offers air plants and succulents that need little attention. Maybe you need a place to just meditate and  get your hands dirty, Thyme and Place should be it! Melinda was even so kind to bring us a beautiful Rubber Tree as an anniversary gift! And Melinda gets full credit for our show title this week, it’s true… the roads do all lead to Peter.

You can find her at 362 E 900 S in Salt Lake City. Keep up with her events and workshops on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram

Every episode we ask our guests, “what is the ONE thing you would tell someone visiting Utah that they must do before leaving.” This week we each went through what our “one things” are.

Chris said The Chocolate.

Bre said go to a Real Salt Lake game.

Jeremy said hit up some local ghost towns.

Jessica said eat local (Hub & Spoke Diner, Grove Market and Deli, India Palace Provo Utah) and finish up with a drive up the Alpine loop and stop at Treasures Antique Mall in Springville!

We recapped of some of our favorite episodes and events we took part in. It was pretty much unanimous that Utah Halloween Expo was our favorite event (episodes 21 and 22)!

We’d love to hear what were some of your favorite episodes? Do you have a favorite show title or guest?

What would you like to see us talk about and do this new year?

Again, we look forward to a stellar new year with more amazing people that represent the heart and soul of Utah! Thank you again to everyone who has made this happen for us.

This is a special edition Utah’s One Thing. In March, Utah was graced with one of Ireland’s top podcaster’s, Peter Donegan, of The Sod Show.

Hidden in the middle of two buildings down 5th south and by 7th east in downtown Salt Lake, that if you blinked you would miss, is the Gilgal Sculptural Gardens. A beautiful outdoor space that is unique to Utah. If you’ve seen a sphinx head of Joseph Smith floating around the internet, this is where you will find it in real life.

It is open to the public seven days a week. There is no admission charge. Walking tour brochures are available at the garden. Visiting hours: April/September – 8 am to 8 pm October/March – 9 am to 5 pm Closed New Year Day; Thanksgiving; Christmas.
