Maxwell Britten of THIRST is on a mission to educate our leaders... and make sure they keep their promises! He sits down with Sother and Greg to talk about fighting for bars in city halls and state capitals across the country.

In March, HRN began producing all of our 35 weekly shows from our homes all around the country. It was hard work stepping away from our little recording studio, but we know that you rely on HRN to share resources and important stories from the world of food each week. It’s been a tough year for all of us, but right now HRN is asking for your help. Every dollar that listeners give to HRN provides essential support to keep our mics on. We've got some fresh new thank you gifts available, like our limited edition bandanas.
