The Breakdown:

A guest or caller from around the industry joins the show to talk about their recent work.


Jack and Erin speak with Allison Hamlin, Deputy Director of Heritage Radio Network. Allison talks the Charleston Tinder game, an app for which she values the use of “nuance and tact.” She also shouts out to The Whisky Bar in Charleston for its well-curated selection of scotch and whiskey, previews her upcoming talk “Wasted: Drinking Stories and Trash Talk” that airs Friday at 2 pm, and provides some anti-hot mess advice for long days of drinking.



 Jack and Erin “big up” people, places, and things they’re totally digging right now.

JACK: The whole team at Heritage for making this live broadcast possible

ERIN: The lovely, talented, gracious, super super competent Laura Kate Whitney at Charleston Wine + Food

ALLISON: The formidable Catherine Lamb and Christine Lowe (also co-author of Farmer & Chef South), who both made the HRN experience at Charleston Wine + Food such a success
