My Fare Story + Eat Your Words No. 5

By

Being in this unspoiled landscape taught me so much about food and culture. This was the first time I understood what fresh fish meant as the local tribe speared it daily and to our pleasure, it was prepared for us.

Today’s Show was about Living Life Happily and Expressive: The Theatre, Comedy, Food + Wine, Travel, and Humanitarians that change the world through the Arts.

Sadie & the Blue Eyed Devils

I’m a big fan of music that surprises me and the first time I learned of Sadie & The Blue Eyed Devils, I knew I was about to experience an entirely different sound. And it didn’t disappoint. Since then, I have become a BIG fan so it’s no surprise how excited I was to have them in the studio playing live for me and all of my listeners and viewers! With an interview and glimpse into what inspired the songs played in the studio, all I can say is – this band is all heart. Seriously. Beautiful, open, willing, and authentic.

We are at a pivotal point in time where there are so many potential positives amidst the insanity.
