We kicked off the week with a quick recap of Newport Jazz Festival and with an interview with musician Estar Cohen that I had a chance to record over the weekend.

Nick Garrison, Owner and Founder of Foolproof Brewing Company, then joined me to chat about this weekend’s Augtoberfest up at the brewery and more.

Finally, we went to the good ol’ mailbag and caught up on what was happening and new out there.
