Baked-in Brilliance: A Baker and a Word Wizard—3.2.19


Brian Noyes and Adam Nemett

We speak to baker-in-chief Brian Noyes whose life is as delicious as his baking. His Red Truck Bakery is one of 13 Condé Nast Traveler Destination Bakeries. We’ll hear the tale of how President Obama came to love Brian’s sweet potato bourbon pecan pie and many highlights equally as fascinating as that. Cue John Wayne, Robert Duvall, Mary Chapin Carpenter and yes...others.

And we chatted with Adam Nemett, award-winning writer about his critically acclaimed debut novel We Can Save Us All. Author Clara Bingham says Adam Nemett is both an exciting new voice and a master storyteller. "We Can Save Us All is a gripping tale of pre-apocalyptic Princeton students who organize themselves as radical renegades...." We covered much more including Jewish superheros, his musical nonprofit MIMA, and his film The Instrument. Tune in for a very fun conversation.
