Grits and Grids podcast on restaurant beverage marketing branding and creative

As a frequent podcast listener I enjoy some great shows on the topic of design and creativity. My one bugaboo has been that a lot of them are simple short question and long answer formats. It’s great to hear the stories – don’t get me wrong – but I wanted to spark conversations on key topics in the world of creativity as as well as the restaurant, food and beverage marketing industries.  Grits X Grids is the perfect platform to launch a podcast of this nature.

Every month features a theme based loosely on common issues faced during that time of the year (or we simply have a good idea). Every week we chat with someone in the creative, restaurant, food or beverage space on a specific topic pertaining to that theme. The conversations are short, but mighty – we keep things to 30-40 minutes. About the same time it takes to finish good food and drink. In fact, that’s the core of our podcast’s focus: Good talks over good food and drink.
