Update from Peter Regarding our Heritage Radio Network Audio Podcasts

Hi All,

As many of you have already figured out, not all of the interviews we do here on Pizza Quest make it onto this website. We only post the Zoom video interviews here (and also on YouTube) because they are, well, videos.  But many of our shows are conducted on audio tape only, such as when we go to Pizza Expo and the Atlantic City Northeast Pizza and Pasta Expo. We don’t post them here because they are, well, audio only. The amazing thing about Zoom, however, is that we can separate the audio track from the video track and use the audio track on our HRN (Heritage Radio Network) broadcasts. So, those who follow us on the audio broadcasts get to hear every show, but it doesn’t work in reverse if you only follow us here at   This week, for example, there is a fascinating conversation with “Slow Rise” pizza genius Noel Brohner and a micro-biologist colleague of his, James Gaffney, who describe their project to create a dried instant yeast packet that also produces true sourdough bread. It post on HRN on Sunday, April 21, so check it out, as well as all the other episodes you’ve been missing.

So, for those who have been missing out, here’s a link to our HRN page so that you can check out all the shows. Here it is:    or here

While you’re there, feel free to explore the other superb podcast shows also hosted by HRN, the only podcast network dedicated exclusively to shows related to food and food issues.

Thank you for all of your continued support on any of our platforms and may your pizzas continue to all be perfect!!

Vision Statement

Pizza Quest is a site dedicated to the exploration of artisanship in all forms, wherever we find it, but especially through the literal and metaphorical image of pizza. As we share our own quest for the perfect pizza we invite all of you to join us and share your journeys too. We have discovered that you never know what engaging roads and side paths will reveal themselves on this quest, but we do know that there are many kindred spirits out there, passionate artisans, doing all sorts of amazing things. These are the stories we want to discover, and we invite you to jump on the proverbial bus and join us on this, our never ending pizza quest.
