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.
Upcoming Shows & Themes
Passion / February 2017
Sure, it may seem like an obvious choice, but it’s a big subject and what better month to discuss than February. The Hallmark month of love. We’ll chat about passion projects, passion for life and career, and maybe shed a tear or two with our guests.
