Kishwer Vikaas and Gino Barrica are the geniuses behind the Philly-centric podcast called Talkadelphia. Inspired by Terry Gross’ Fresh Air, they’ve set out to talk to every single Philadelphian that fascinates them. Their podcast provides insight into the lives and projects of people like IshKnits, Eric Smith and Tim Quirino, Leah Kaufmann, and Tim Whitaker. Their classic episode features Mayor Nutter with a surprising and lovely twist at the end (I will not spoil it, just listen).
Kishwer and Gino were kind enough to invite me onto the show to talk about the Philly Love Notes project. For those readers who don’t know, people send me love notes written to their favorite place in the city. We then meet, chat, and take a few pics. Most of these meetings are pseudo-interviews, or my attempt to learn about all the fascinating Philadelphians. I rarely have the chance to talk, at length, about the project. It was enlightening to prepare for the interview and realize just how much I’ve accomplished since the site started in the spring. So thanks Talkadelphia (aka Kishwer and Gino)!
