To be short and sweet, i'm having connection issues with uploading the latest episode of the KA Podcast. Basically, my home internet is in a state where it connects for a period, then drops, and attempts to reconnect. Once i have this solved, i will have the podcast episode out to you as soon as i possibly can. My apologies on the delay!

First off, Happy New Year to all of you out there! Here's to a new year!

On this episode, i talk about an interesting new concept restaurant McDonalds has been experimenting with in Hong Kong that 'revitalizes' their brand in a way. Also, Whole Foods reached a 'settlement' with New York City in regards to the price disparities they were found to have some months ago. And then, i'll talk about what my plans for myself and for Kitchen Academic are for the new year.

Firstly, my apologies in the delay of posting this. I won't really offer an excuse, but my internet has been very twitchy...

Anyway, in this episode i discuss Chipotle, the favored food franchise of the last few years. They've gotten into some trouble with food borne illness stemming from their restaurants. I talk about what it takes for the Department of Health to close a restaurant, how Chipotle's marketing might have made this worse for themselves and give you snippets from an interview CEO and founder Steven Ells gave a few days ago.

We'll talk about some scientists view food's evolution, what food in motion triggers in you subconsciously, how McD's is doing with the all-day breakfast idea and why i'm going to be traveling to Chicago.

To those that regularly follow the podcast, you will note that there was no episode released on September 15th. There's a good reason for that; i resigned from my job. But not in the typical way. I talk about that and a little more in today's episode.

In today's podcast, i want to reflect on what i learned while i was down there, a few funny things i noticed, and just my reflecting on the experience. Also, i'll spend the other half of this episode venting on a recently released video showcasing exactly why i believe that the customer is not always right.
