This week on Snacky Tunes, hosts Darin and Greg Bresnitz welcome Heritage Radio Network’s own Talia Ralph to the show! Talia is the host of the new Thursday show, Pizza Party, and starts this episode with the guys off with a bang – talking pizza and bagels. Hailing from Montreal, Talia talks about her food memories growing up, complete with her grandmother’s matzo ball soup. Talia admits that her family was a big source of inspiration for her to head into the food world and having nearly completed her Graduate Degree in Food Studies at NYU, the guys dig deep into her obsession with various American chain restaurants. In the second half of the show, the guys welcome musical guest Nullsleep to Snacky Tunes. Nullsleep is an electronic musician whose musical style could best be described as post-cyberpunk; a combination of distorted synthpop, electro, and industrial produced with repurposed low-bit electronics. Delving into his musical influences and writing process, Greg and Darin chat about more 1980s inspirations before hearing a few brand new, unnamed tracks, live in the studio. This program has been sponsored by Cain Vineyard & Winery.
