28 – Hospitality and Politics in Chef Kevin Shinn’s Backyard

On this episode of Pints & Politics with Dan Parsons (during the COVID-19 health emergency) we retreat to the beautiful backyard of Chef and Author Kevin Shinn to talk about how politics could learn a thing or two about the hospitality of the restaurant industry. And we wash it all down with several locally sourced craft beers. Pull up a bar stool, or lawnchair, and join us.
