Tasting The Heat is currently the best media show ANYWHERE that does hot sauce reviews, interviews and live shows for small batch gourmet hot sauce and spicy food makers. I consider Tasting the Heat host Kendall Stadler to be the man who is most suited for picking up the mantle once held by people like Brian & Marilyn Meagher and also myself with our various fiery foods industry podcasts and YouTube videos.
Kendall is currently raising money to help cover the costs of attending the New York Hot Sauce Expo, April 22 & 23-2017. This is one of THE premier fiery food events on the planet! If your’re a fan of Tasting The Heat, we’re sure you can easily imagine the excitement of being able to deliver live interviews with sauce and fiery food makers, as well as showcasing some of the products…
I wish creating a new podcast episode would be as easy as pushing a button.
I get messages and emails every week about it. People want to know, “Scott, are you going to start up with Firecast Podcast episodes again?” The short answer is, I don’t know.
The long answer is that there is still quite a bit more I want to accomplish with having a fiery foods and BBQ podcast. I have slam-dunk ideas swimming around in my head, such as special guests to bring on to interview, more compelling conversation topics with my co-hort Ken Alexander, and concepts and subject I’m itching to cover.
The “problem” is…well, it’s messy and complicated.
I could very easily place blame on things that are going on in my life. Adjusting to a new job, spending more time with my woman and my boys, and a plethora of other little things honestly have taken more of my time.
But it would be unfair to make them all instant scapegoats. To be fair, I would also have to point the finger right back on little old me. If I really wanted to, I’m sure that I could “make” more time. Yet a certain level of apathy and lack of drive exists. I just don’t have the desire and motivation right now to sit down in my home office and recording room and crank out and edit a fresh few episodes.
