Coffee with Creatives (Podcast!): Fried and True

Hey, Coffee Fiends.

I write this dispatch from a hotel “business center” which is really just a bench behind where they serve the free coffee. It’s 7AM (I’m in San Francisco) and they just ran out of coffee, so I don’t know what’s real anymore.

Never mind. They replaced the coffee. We’re good. Back to the task at hand.

Coffee with Creatives is a podcast now. As you may recall, it seemed early on that this was the better way to go. Also, some people wrote in directly stating that a podcast version would make it easier for them to absorb the interviews. I do want to make things easier for you.

This week’s inaugural podcast episode is with Street Chef Sang Hoon “Heezy” Lee, of Zhà Pan Asian, winner of the 2014 Best of Market Vendy Award. We’re best buds, and had some fun, but we also talked seriously about the process of creating a quality product, and how to strategically grow while maintaining that quality. It’s a good conversation.

Don't let this fool you. Heezy is actually totally cereal about cooking.

I believe Coffee with Creatives is now on iTunes. That may be the best and most efficient way to listen right now. The show may not come up in search for a few more days, though, while it’s still new.

You can also listen right here:

Please share the episode if you like it! I would love to keep growing Coffee with Creatives, and that’s the number one way it’s going to happen.

One last note — I am already having a blast doing this, but running a professional podcast like this does cost a bit of time and money. I am covering costs, will continue to do that, and the show will always be free…

…but if you enjoy the podcast and can afford it, please consider becoming a monthly supporter of the show on Patreon. Alternatively, you can make a one time donation by heading over to the Coffee with Creatives tab above, and contributing via PayPal.

Here’s a fun video about the whys and hows of all that:

I’m technically on vacation now, so I’m going to go drink more coffee and try to find a non-hotel option for breakfast. You’re all beautiful flowers. Yes. Even you, dude.
