Yellow Dog Coffee & Okie Baking Co

Co-housed together in Downtown Norman, Okie Baking Co, and Yellow Dog Coffee complement each other to provide tasty treats and drinks. Robert Wilson from Yellow Dog Coffee and Shannon Hanchett from Okie Baking Co talk about their origin stories, their passions, and what they offer.

Visit them at 109 East Tonhawa Street (facing Jones Avenue) in Norman. Parking Tip: The best place to park your car is a little south, in front of The Foundry on Jones Avenue, where there are stips of free parking. Don’t park in front of the building on Tonhawa as that’s reserved for a law firm housed there.

I filmed this story before the whole COVID-19 pandemic shutdown. I want to share that people can still visit their drive-thru location, Cool Beans, to purchase coffee, muffins, and cookies. People can also email Shannon directly to order half dozens or bakers dozens at shannon@okiebakingco.com or call her at 405-213-2896. Yellow Dog Coffee is also offering curb-side pick-up of drinks and roasted beans.

OVF: Donna Miller and Liz Charles

For the Oklahoma Venture Forum, I interviewed Donna Miller and Liz Charles about their ventures in Oklahoma. The Oklahoma Venture Forum is a non-profit organization providing entrepreneurs and growing ventures in Oklahoma access to capital and management development through education, networking, and other resources. I’ve partnered with The Golding Group to record and host the podcast series. 

Donna Miller with Purse Power uses her platform to inspire women to use their enormous economic power to buy from companies that actively create opportunities for women and shatter the glass ceiling in a matter of quarters rather than decades.

Liz Charles fights for women’s rights in her position as Executive Director of the Oklahoma Women’s Coalition. The coalition’s mission is “to champion the collective power of Oklahomans to advance gender equity and justice.”

John McGaha and the Stir-Crazy Sisters Live Show

With all of the various St. Patrick’s Day events canceled, on a spur-of-the-moment, I put together this live show in my living room featuring music from John McGaha and the Stir-Crazy Sisters. Enjoy some Irish/Celtic music from the comfort and safety of your own home. The band had COOP Ale’s Works’ Will & Wiley hard seltzer on hand to support a local business too.

Oklahoma Pies Vol. 1

In this first installment showcasing Oklahoma Pies, I visited five places in the Oklahoma City area. This episode hears from owners of chefs from Caeli’s Sweets, Eats & Bar, Heifers & Hens, Ingrid’s Kitchen, Pie Junkie, and Whole Latte Pie about the pies they offer.

For this episode, I let the owners/bakers talk about themselves and their pies. I filmed at least two takes and took the best parts for their segment. With this being a montage video, I spent about an hour at each place and most of Monday editing it all together. I love how well it turned out and how each segment stood out on their own.

If this episode does well, I got more to feature in a future installment.

Broke Brewing Company

Broke Brewing Company in Oklahoma City near Route 66 is all about the juxtaposition of broke and decadent, modern and classic. Charn Langford, Mike Groshong, Andrew Whitney talk about their drink selection, which includes and mix of modern and classic beers, as we as other fermented beverages like kombucha.

Visit Broke Brewing Company inside Project 3810 at 3810 North Tulsa Avenue in Oklahoma City.

I got to have some fun on the edit with this story, giving a unique flair for the episode. I hope you all enjoy it and get to check them out if you’re into craft beer. I’m working on a pie episode for next week and I’ve filmed four pie places so far, with one more scheduled for Saturday. I’m also doing some interviews in Norman with Yellow Dog Coffee and Sergio’s. Client work has been keeping me busy hence last week’s event recap videos. I do hope to share the stuff I’ve been working with Oklahoma Contemporary with you soon. The new building and upcoming opening exhibition are amazing.
