Episode 71 How do YOU apply your oil?

Standard

This week for Episode 71 we took a field trip! We love when we get to go on site and visit our guests. Olio Skin Co. invited us into their new shop to record. They had their grand opening last weekend at 2157 E 2100 S in Sugar House. You can also find Aimee’s Home Cookin Spice Blends sharing a shop with Olio.

By the way, this episode is probably NSFW. Not that any of our episodes are, but this one was a slippery slope. Ha … see what we did there. Now you will have to listen to see what we mean. We loved sitting down with Jen and Derek of Olio and talking about their product line, what is coming up, bringing it other Utah’s own products into their shop, and of course their grand opening!

The plan for the future is to start offering cold press soap classes, meditation classes, perhaps a barbering day, and so on. Make sure to submit your videos to Olio on Facebook and tag them on Instagram and show how YOU apply your Olio oil!

   

 

They also gave us a code to hand out which is good until November 1st for 25% off their products online at OlioSkin.com or in their store. THENEWUTAHPODCAST is your code.

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 …

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!

Episode 50: Utah’s Own RubySnap. You KNOW you want her cookies!

Standard

The Big 5-0. No one even got any gold…. We feel cheated. Good news is, Jeremy’s bees are thriving and Chris & Bre have been planting/cleaning. Does anyone need a basket?

The New Utah was fortunate to be joined this week by none other than cookie maven, Tami Steggell. Owner and innovator behind those cookies you can’t get enough of, Utah’s very own, RubySnap! Listen to Tami’s journey from architect designer to cookie architect! We chatted about how she has stayed true to herself and her brand, and her vision for offering a memorable experience for every person that steps into her doors. Her cookies have and will continue to travel the world.

Without giving the WHOLE episode away, Tami gives us a history of why the pin-up girls and why the WWII facade is important to her. Each cookie is named after a friend, family member, or guest that has visited her store. Tami also talks with us on the importance of building relationships in the Utah community.  She may even be cool enough to tell us HER personal favorite!

If you ever wanted to know how much butter is used in a year… she knows! Find them at 770 S 300 W in Salt Lake City or in local Harmons stores. Also on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!

RubySnap IS the epitome of Utah’s Own.

Episode 34 Taking a ride on the Ativan…

Standard

The New Utah Podcast met up this week with an old friend, local author David J. West. We met at the Halloween Expo in October and we’re so excited to have him on this week to talk about his new book, “Scavengers (A Porter Rockwell Adventure)” which is being released on January 24th through Amazon. (but you can pre-order now!) David even has a special running next week for the release of Scavengers!! (which you’ll just have to listen to get your deal)  From Montana, to Los Angeles, settling in Utah. David has found a passion and knack for writing historically based western, sci-fi, fantasy and horror (not whore) books! The new release focuses on local Utah favorite, Porter Rockwell!!

Utah’s One Thing: Kerry Jackson

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 17 visit with Kerry Jackson, of x96 Radio From Hell, suggested that you must find a cool bar and talk to locals. Go to Bar X or Whiskey Street. Just hang out and talk to a local.
