ILYSM Ep. 46: Home Slice’s Jen Strickland and Terri Hannifin on their new location

A pizza field trip to New York sounds like a once-in-a-lifetime dream, but for Home Slice Pizza workers, pizza camp is an integral part of their training. In this week’s episode of “I Love You So Much: The Austin360 Podcast,” co-hosts Tolly Moseley and Addie Broyles interview co-owners Jen Strickland and Terri Hannifin at their new North Loop restaurant about why they’ve chosen to invest in their staff with these annual trips to New York, why it took them a decade to open a second location and the importance of neighborhood restaurants in a quickly growing city.

Austin photographer Scott David Gordon, whose images you might have seen from his many years shooting at Johnson's Backyard Garden, has turned his love of art into Austin Art Talk, a podcast featuring interviews with local artists and gallery owners. He sat down with Addie to talk about what he's learned about what inspires them and the ups and downs of the creative life.

Food lovers are still mourning the death of Anthony Bourdain last week, and in a remembrance segment, Addie and Tolly talk about the legacy of his storytelling and what other food writers continue to inspire us.

In A Toast, our recommendations segment, Omar L. Gallaga shared a story about his daughter recently taking kayaking lessons through the parks and recreation department in New Braunfels. Addie explained why she sometimes makes a trek to Ikea just to buy groceries and Tolly recommended a new Netflix show called "Evil Genius: The True Story of America's Most Diabolical Bank Heist," a four-part true crime docuseries about the twisted tale of the 2003 murder of Brian Wells.
