This week, on the very first episode of Pizza Party, host Talia Ralph welcomes Colin Hagendorf, also known as The Slice Harvester, to the program. Colin comes on the show as a resident expert in the New York pizza scene by having sought out every non-chain pizza joint in Manhattan and devouring a slice from each. Hence, The Slice Harvester and his blog, rating system, and original radio program were born. Colin shares his background, how he got his cheesy start slice harvesting, and how he was able to use the power of pizza to wield a fun and delicious livelihood. After the break, Colin shares that he is in the process of writing a book about his time spent on the pizza slice journey and how it subsequently affected his life. Tune in for the debut episode of Pizza Party and to learn which, of all the slices, happens to be Colin’s favorite. This program was brought to you by The Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board.
“[Slice harvesting] helped me because I had something to do that was exciting and I also had something to do that was sociable because I would take friends with me slice harvesting. I had an outlet to be social and creative with my pals that wasn’t going to the bar or drinking a forty on a stoop.” [25:32]
