Who doesn’t like a little laughter while they eat?

If you do, tune into BrunchBurgh – a podcast entirely devoted to Sunday Brunch conversations in Pittsburgh. Each week, host Mary Stewart chats with local comedians, business owners, and Pittsburgh enthusiasts while delving into some of the best food Pittsburgh has to offer.


So far, the podcast has produced four episodes – all covering different types of food and talking points. Episode 1, entitled “Salmon Benedict and Shrimp with Karen Forney,” gives listeners a lively discussion from Bar Marco in the Strip District. The conversation discusses the growing comedy scene here in Pittsburgh as well as the ethics of eating oysters, the practices of Australian Buddhists and what makes a “Pittsburgh moment.”


In the second episode, BrunchBurgh visits Coca Café in Lawrenceville to talk with Row House Cinema about their single screen movie theater currently crowd funding on indiegogo. Also featured is owner Brian Mendelssohn and general manager Geoff Sanderson. The discussion includes small movie theater culture, appreciating craft beer and the importance of community-driven small businesses. And last but not least, tacos.


Eprisode 3 – Breakfast Burritos – celebrates National Bacon Day by taking a trip across the river to Cornerstone in Aspinwall for a chat with blogger, lawyer and self-proclaimed Pittsburgh expert Elizabeth Collura. Some discussion topics include the early days of the Pittsburgh food scene and favorite restaurants.


Last week’s episode returns to the Strip – to Marty’s Market – with an unrestrained and hilarious conversation with local comedians Derek Minto, Krish Mohan and Ray Zawodni.


Listen for where they will go next! The show airs every Sunday and can be followed by checking out their Twitter, website, or by subscribing on iTunes.
