Released Friday, 17th August 2018
Good episode? Give it some love!
What if you followed your dream, no matter how unlikely it was and how many people told you it was crazy? Joshua Bingaman did it twice, creating two uniquely Austin businesses, Progress Coffee and Helm Boots. On this episode, Joshua discusses what inspired him to start each of them and why the creative synergy of around 2008-2010 in Austin led to so many successful offshoots from some of Austin’s best artisans. PLUS: Austin360 restaurant critic Matthew Odam talks about the blowback from his article about the state of BBQ in Lockhart, Texas; he says the meat mecca has missed a step as Central Texas brisket has evolved. AND: In this week’s Webb Report,  Eric Webb gives us the lowdown on the upcoming FieriCon, a pub crawl happening in Austin this October for fans of “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” host Guy Fieri. And in a “A Toast," we recommend a documentary you can find on Netflix, “The Last Laugh,” Michael Chabon’s recent book of essays about fatherhood, “Pops.” And Addie suggests “Daughters of the Dust,” Julie Dash’s 1991 film about the Gullah community of coastal South Carolina, which visually inspired Beyoncé’s “Lemonade.” More info: http://austin360.com/loveaustin360
