One of our favorite parts of making Seasoned, is YOU, our listeners. Once a month, we open up the phone lines and talk with you about food stuff you’re passionate about: apple picking, barbecue, breweries, ice cream. This week on Seasoned: A look back at fun and informative moments from a year of live shows. You really do give the best recommendations. And, you ask great questions, too.
