Do you believe in the luck of the four-leaf clover?

3:00  Mairin Petrone

Mairin Petrone, Director of the Pittsburgh Irish Festival, talks about the importance of Irish heritage in Pittsburgh and its significance to the new location at Carrie Furnace. Hearty, savory, and strong are only a few ways to describe Irish food, according to Mairin. The music selection doesn’t get any better either! How can you celebrate Irish culture year-round?  

11:53 Johnny Harte

 As owner of Five Farms Irish Cream, Johnny Harte had a lot to spill with the jags. County Cork, home of Five Farms, has a rich history of more than just dairy farms. The grass-fed cows in Ireland are all thanks to the Gulf of Mexico. The influence on his business venture can be traced back to Pittsburgh through a local liquor specialist, Stanley Stankovich.

24:20 Cara Sapida, WPXI

After months of attempts at meeting, the hometown reporter made it to the podcast. No stranger to the blog, Cara reminisces her yoga pose blog post explaining space a car took up as #PeterParkersPic on the blog years ago. From reading to carting kiddos to and from, Cara is A-ok with reporting three days a week.  

41:40 Bow Tides (Ellery Klein, Jessie Burns, Katie Grennan)

After 16 years in the same band but never the same time, the Bow Tides are now touring the country! Even more, they already have a KickStarter to produce their first physical CD! Click HERE to get the deets!
