Episode 10: Underdogs With An Attitude: A Ric Orlando Profile With Mary Darcy

So for something a little different, in this podcast I am the subject of the interview! Back in 2018, Mary Darcy, owner of the website All Over Albany interviewed me for a profile piece. Since then, All Over Albany has shut down so she sent me the interview, and I thought what the hell... I'll share. We discuss my early career, music, my business philosophy, Albany, and small cities in general. It ends with a great rocking song "U Flip 4 Every 1" from my Boston Band SKIN, circa 1987.

Episode 9: She’s The Queen Of The Machine! Maria and Buddhapesto

The interviews are BACK! This week's cast features my dear friend, former New World server and artisanal food producer, Maria Gandara, owner (with her family) of the Hudson Valley's beloved Buddhapesto. She will rant, giggle and plow her way through about 40 minutes of convo! (and that was after a thorough edit).

Episode 8: Straws Are Just The Tip Of The Iceberg

"I want a revolution, there's too much hate pollution"
Episode 8 of One Million Stringbeans is a solo show! Yeah, I am good with cutting back on straws but there is so much more to it. I rant on about the environmental impact of our convenience food culture and offer some ideas on how to change it!
The recipe of the week celebrates the peak summer harvest with a great Greek Country Salad ( No Lettuce!) and I even offer a trick to make Feta vegan.
The closing song this week is a poignant and (sadly) timely number from my Boston Band SKIN called Beating Me Back, written in 1987, the lyrics foretell the era we live in today.
