Sure, this Memorial Day weekend will be a little different than years past, but we have compiled some of our favorite podcast episodes to keep you company. We might be biased, but we think these are a great accompaniment if you are driving out of town, working on your house or even exploring the city on a long walk.
Ep. 19 – We talk to Christine Iksic, co-owner of Three Rivers Outdoor Co., about camping for beginners and we learn that Western PA is a great place for whitewater kayaking.
Step up to explore Pittsburgh neighborhoods
Ep. 15 – Laura Zurowski is climbing all of Pittsburgh’s city steps and documenting them with a Polaroid camera. If you plan to take an urban hike, this episode is a perfect accompaniment.
Ep. 20 – We talk to historic preservationist Justin Greenawalt about old houses, the Pittsburgh potty and Bellevue.
Ep. 21 – Meet Scott Kowalski, the organizer of the Pittsburgh Underwear Bike Ride. The bike ride is on hold for the time being, but you can learn more about this community and some of the places to ride in the city.
Ep. 28 – In our most recent episode of The Slaw, we talk with two members of the Pittsburgh Circus Arts Collaborative. Curious about what it is like to be a circus performer? Take a listen. Plus, they are still finding creative ways to perform during a pandemic.
A Collaborative Beer
Ep. 06 – Pink Boots Society is an organization of women who work in the beer industry. The Pittsburgh chapter has just released its 2020 collaboration beer, Virago’s Fury, which is available at Penn Brewery, Roundabout Brewery and The Independent Brewing Company. Last fall, we talked to Lauren Hughes, who is the assistant head brewer at Penn Brewery, about Pink Boots and some of her favorite local beers.
