Hey, All! Long time, no see/hear! I hope everyone is doing great! In case you missed our latest episode from the end of last year or hadn’t heard it from me elsewhere, we’ve been taking a bit of a break from doing The NOLADrinks Show. And, we’re making some changes, to boot! I went into this in greater detail during the last show. But long story short, we have made the move to being a podcast-only program! I decided to pull the radio version of the show from the station, as, among other things, its values and presentation were not in-line with mine. This was a long time coming!
But it’s all good! We’re now focusing our efforts on the Nitty Grits Podcast Network – the podcast network of the Southern Food and Beverage Museum, of which, yours truly, is an executive producer. It’s a growing collection of great, like-minded shows centered broadly around food, drink, and culture. If you haven’t already, please check it out – visit SouthernFood.org for more! Of course, you can always get all our past shows at NOLADrinks.com (link in bio) or on your favorite podcast network!
We will be back in action soon on the show. In fact, we’ve got a couple of great shows that were taped earlier this year and will be out soon. This includes our annual Turning Tables show as well as great conversations with cocktail luminaries, Dale DeGroff, Philip Greene, Chris Hannah, and Abigail Gullo. So, be on the lookout for that! After doing a regular, weekly radio show and podcast for several years with only a few breaks here and there, I decided to take some time to chill out, retool some things with the show, and work on the Nitty Grits project. As a last hurrah before getting back to it, I am hitting the road for a couple weeks to visit Spain and Italy (I am sure we’ll share some stuff from the trip…) After that, we will be bringing you more episodes in short order.
Thanks to you all for the ongoing support, listenership, and friendship! It is greatly appreciated, and I look forward to bringing you interesting, important, and fun conversations with great guests that “explore the world of drink, food, and culture in New Orleans and beyond!”
Cheers and Be Well, You All!
