Brandon Smith, Food & Champagne

Food is a way to communicate without words. What we eat says a lot about who we are and who we want to be. We show our appreciation. We share honor our heritage. We commune with our friends and loved ones. It's also generally delicious. 

In this week's episode, Brandon Smith of BrewHouse Music talks favorite foods, death row meals and what food means to him.


Every month, I deliver 4 (sometimes 5, depending on how many Thursdays there are) episodes of Champagne & Snark. I say “we” a lot, because I like to think big…but this is a one. woman. show. We’re going to get to “we”, but right now it is me and Figaro. 

If you pledge $1/month, that’s like 25 cents an episode, but don’t think of it like that. The money that you pledge as a patron is going to help Champagne & Snark grow into something big. I’m looking to buy better equipment, do more live shows, offer merchandize and eventually make this my full time thing. You’re basically helping to hire me so that I can make more of the things that you love and get better equipment so that the thing that you love sounds better.

Depending on the amount of money that you pledge as a patron, I’m offering all sorts of fun stuff, like an opportunity to come into the Champagne Room for a live recording of the show and secret links to online afterparties. 

Check out some of the goals we have for Champagne & Snark and what fun stuff I’ll send you for becoming a patron at
