Sweet Tater Talks

Uh oh...

As if having written documentation of my almost-every thought, action and F-bomb weren’t enough to ruin my reputation for the rest of my life, I’ve decided to delve into the world of internet video… not THAT kind of video, you dirtbags.

Fully clothed!

Sweet Tater Talks will (ideally) be a once-weekly rundown of the latest food happenings from policy to reality TV, blogs, product reviews and everything in between. But since this mother took me a good 4 FRIGGING HOURS to complete last night… Let’s just say I’m not making any promises.

I’ve always been a writer, not a speaker. My public speaking professor (who was also my journalism professor) told me to stick to writing. I’ll take that as a challenge, kind sir. Let’s not forget I hold in my possession a trophy for my instructional speech on how to make a bubble machine in third grade (or somewhere around there). Don’t worry, I’ll teach you one day.

Before I reveal the link (because I’m still kind of humiliated but going to do it anyway), here’s a look behind the scenes:

The set

The attire

The director

I bet you news anchors never wear pants. Ever.

And without further adieu, I present:

Sweet Tater TalksSeason 1, Episode 1: Tom Vilsack loves cheese, Top Chef All Stars Season 8 kicks off and the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act finally passes the House.

That’s right, I called it a “season” and an “episode.” A girl can dream. Hate on, haters.

  1. I thought it was super cute! You can’t be a bad public speaker…I found your blog after I saw a video of you speaking at the Healthy Living Summit :-)

    I saw that Steven Colbert episode this week – it made the “International episode” (which is just highlights – we don’t get the whole show – boo!). Really gross. Especially when he licked it!

  2. Tater does it again. Awesome. Isn’t watching (or even hearing) yourself as a recording bizarre? I can’t deal, which is partly why I won’t go to the trouble to provide links on my blog to videos of myself. You, on the other hand, have nothing to be humiliated about. You’re a natural, and your public speaking professor doesn’t know what he’s talking about. Here’s looking at you — and looking forward to more episodes and seasons.

  3. just watched the video, as i realized the link was there the whole time.

    love that you’re branching out.. i think it’s a great idea and a great way to further the brand of sweet tater. ;)
