A Podcast About Love and Life in Newport, RI

2017 has a lot in store for Newport. What are we looking forward to the most this year? Christian Winthrop of the Newport Buzz joins us this week to talk about what Newporters do in the winter, and shares a few inside tips for THE event of the year, the Newport Folk Festival.  Plus, Buck and Helena give you the rundown on what you can expect on the show this year.. more dine & dish, definitely more adventure island, and more shop Newport segments. It all starts with one of the biggest adventures of all, the 15th annual Newport Bridal Show.

This week’s dine & dish is a little off the beaten path – Buck and Helena had dins at Jacky’s in Providence last weekend, where they tried sea urchin for the first time. Find out what THAT’s like. Listen in!

Show Notes and Links:


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!
