There’s a new podcast to check out in town. For those of you Raleigh fans you may want to check out the Neighbors of Raleigh Podcast created by Andrea Wallenbeck. Andrea loves talking to people in Raleigh and uncovering both interesting history and universal truths about life, love and craft. I think you will find this really comes through in the podcast.

We have many foodie friends on so we thought you may want to check out the following episodes:

Episode 4: George Poniris of The Roast Grill
The Roast Grill is a one of a kind place in downtown Raleigh and Hot Dog George is no exception. George is a jack of all trades and full of stories. His family’s immigrant story includes cargo ships and Ellis Island and helps explains why this little hot dog joint serves chili dogs AND baklava. Little has changed over the 70 years of the Roast Grill and that is what makes it so special.

Episode 7: Tami Purdue of Sweet Peas Urban Gardens
Tami is on a microgreen mission to change the world. She unexpectedly stumbled into this calling just a few years ago after a chance weekend class. She quit her long time career managing a patent attorney’s office and became an agro-entrepreneur and founder of Sweet Peas Urban Gardens. Using a new urban growing system developed here in Raleigh, called the CROPBOX, Tami now supplies nutrient rich greens to nearly 50 restaurants across the Triangle, five farmers markets, two CSAs and even a preschool.

You can find the Neighbors of Raleigh Podcast on iTunes, Stitcher or Libsyn.
