Despite its name, Foxhunting isn’t necessarily about foxes, nor hunting, but it is an amazing sport that honors old traditions that are carried forward to this day. Scarlet coats, tall boots, beautifully turned out horses, and even a little port wine with breakfast, make the sport of following hounds across the countryside a spectacle to remember. Buck interviews Helena this week as she recounts a joyous return to a sport she fell in love with years ago. Plus, Buck dishes about the best black bean burger in Newport. Listen in!

THAT NEWPORT SHOW is a weekly podcast sharing the stories and characters that make Newport, Rhode Island America’s favorite city by the sea.
With each episode, hosts Buck & Helena share their Newport experiences in segments like Dine & Dish, Adventure Island, and Shop Newport.
Buck and Helena are a couple of old punks who survived what they call “the toddler years” (plus a few extra). As they slowly regain their sanity, this smart and silly couple are once again venturing out into the world to get their party on. They may be a bit slower these days, but they are also a lot wiser. And honestly, a lot more fun. Read more about your hosts.
While That Newport Show features a lot of what Newport has to offer both visitors and residents, the essence of show is about two grown-ups who really have no business being grown-ups, and the things they get up to in Newport – as well as at home on their small New England horse farm.
Every Thursday the Sparkle and Boom Podcast Network airs a new episode. You can stream or download episodes from our website, or listen on iTunes, GooglePlay, Stitcher Radio, or your favorite podcatcher app. We hope you’ll join us!
