Strudl Haus - Restaurant of the Week

It's been some time since we've checked in with the folks from The Strudl Haus so we made them our Restaurant of the Week. Because Chef Michael Leo is off in Austria we get to visit with Sous Chef and Kitchen Manager Jake Schneider. Who, before he started at The Strudl Haus knew...NOTHING...about the restaurant business. He's come a very long way in nearly two years with Chef Leo. Here is his story and more about our Restaurant of the Week.

Abuse, Business and Larry James, Sr.

By any metric, the war on drugs in America has been a colossal failure. The U.S. has the highest per capita incarceration rate of any developed nation in the world. Millions of men and women are languishing behind bars because of substance abuse. According to Larry James, Sr. of Bridges of Iowa this is not sustainable. And, when it comes to business the link between drugs, employees and productivity is well documented. Here we talk about that, some ideas to combat the trend and more. Worth a listen!

Cycling, Economics, RAGBRAI and The Bike Expo

We pack a bunch of information and fun in this interview with Mark Wyatt from the Iowa Bicycle Coalition and Scott Garner from RAGBRAI (Register's Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa).
