elements on NPR
Colin Shearn of Philadelphia’s extremely good Franklin Mortgage & Investment Co. was interviewed yesterday on WHYY’s Radio Times with Marty Moss-Coane along with Jason Wilson; author of Boozehound: On the Trail of the Rare, the Obscure, and the Overrated in Spirits. Covering many different aspects of booze from defining specific spirits and liqueurs to bartending life, it can be listened to here.
I have not yet read the book though I’ve heard very good things. And to anyone who has not yet been to the Franklin: stop playing around on your damn computer and head to Philly now. It’s a bar that should not be missed.
For those who don’t have the time to listen to the whole broadcast, here’s a bit of shameless self-promotion where Colin gave me a quick shout-out.
