Episode 41 we were pleased to have British author Tracey Rolfe back with us. It is always fun to hear what people who moved to Utah or are visiting have to say that their one thing that you must do before leaving Utah is.

Episode 48: 4 out of 5 dentists recommend!

Standard

Who is this 5th dentist that didn’t recommend? If you find them, let us know! Also if anyone knows why the UK is notorious for bad teeth???

Episode 48 we were joined by Dr. Nate Tobler of StoneHaven Dental. Why in the world would we have a dentist on? Because they are making an impact in the Utah community! Every year for the past 8(ish) years they have opened their offices up the first Saturday in May and done Stonehaven Smiles. Anyone is allowed to come and wait in line to get one of the following: a cleaning, a cavity filled, or an extraction!  As Dr. Nate said, there are plenty of kids dental programs around the state but this offers opportunity to adults as well. We also gave Dr. Nate the run-through of dental hygiene and dental myths.  By the way, Don’t suck on lemons!

For more details on each restaurant click on the photo.

Ep 46 Even Sen. Jim Dabakis gets kicked out sometimes.

Standard

The new Utah state motto according to Jim Dabakis: “Don’t Be Scared Off” What do you think?

We pride ourselves on talking about progressive Utah, and who is MORE progressive than Senator Jim Dabakis? The New Utah Podcast was incredibly honored to have Utah Senator Jim Dabakis sit down with us this week. We don’t want to give out any spoiler alerts, let’s just say he has lead an amazing life! It is incredibly fascinating and provocative (for Utahn’s) listening to him talk about why he does politics the way he does! Senator Dabakis is passionate about medicaid, education funding, and equality. Jim Dabakis has created a lot of memories and organizations in Utah that you may not even know he had a hand in! Utah is fortunate to have a Senator that is so transparent, has traveled the world, has created great organizations for Utah and loves life! We had many more questions to ask, so we will have to do a follow up interview! DamnDabakis.com will keep you up to date on his fight, as well as his Facebook and Twitter.

Events happening this week. Yes, it is Easter, but perhaps you can step out of your comfort zone and head over to the Utah Cambodian Community Buhddist Temple in West Valley for the Cambodian New Year celebration. Our friend Chanda will be showing off his dance troupe and there will be delightful food!

Thyme and Place is offering a workshop this weekend on moss/mushroom wreath buildling, the Tulip Festival is in full swing at Thanksgiving Point, and if you want to head to Ogden you can experience a Mountain Man Easter rendezvous at Fort Buenaventura. Oh, and mountain goat watching!! There’s Mountain goat watching at the park and ride in Little Cottonwood Canyon!

The New Utah would like to remind anyone who is in need of an ear that we are here for you.  Utah lost two young Transgender community members over the last couple weeks. We need to be there for our youth. If you need to reach out, please know we are here to listen, you can go to suicide.org or you can call the Utah Suicide hotline 1-800-SUICIDE (1-800-784-2433) or 800-273-TALK (1-800-273-8255)

Utah’s One Thing: David J. West

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?”

Utah Author David J West of episode 34 suggested that the one thing someone should do before leaving Utah is just to drive to the middle of nowhere. We definitely have a lot of  “nowhere” here in Utah.  Another great spot that David suggested is the San Rafael Swell located in the south east part Utah.
