A Podcast About Love and Life in Newport, RI

“Love isn’t something natural. Rather it requires discipline, concentration, patience, faith, and the overcoming of narcissism. It isn’t a feeling, it is a practice.”

According to Erich Fromm, a German psychologist and philosopher, love requires a lot more than a willing heart. Buck and Helena discuss how doing fun things with people you love, supports the practice of love.  Plus, while winter travel isn’t at the top of most people’s priority lists (unless they are traveling to someplace warm and relaxing), we hope to change that in this episode. Buck and Helena love their Caribbean adventures, but they also love the beautiful, charming, and relaxing atmosphere of Newport in the winter.  There is truly no better place to do your holiday shopping, sip a cocktail, and hang out with friends. Listen in to find out more!

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.

blackandwhiteBuck 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, GooglePlayStitcher Radio, or your favorite podcatcher app.  We hope you’ll join us!
