A Podcast for People Who Love Newport, Rhode Island

Have you been to the British Virgin Islands? Our new friends at the BVI tourism board join us this week to talk about why you might want to spend some time on any one of their 60 beautiful islands. If you can’t make the Newport Boat Show next week, listen in as our guests Perla George and Shonda Maduro give us the inside scoop on traveling to their slice of Caribbean heaven. And if you’ve been thinking about whipping up some healthy and easy late summer dishes, Buck shares the details behind his delicious menu from our Farm to Stable YotMe party. Listen in!

THAT NEWPORT SHOW is a weekly podcast sharing the stories and characters that make Newport, Rhode Island, Amercia’s favorite city by the sea.

With each episode, hosts Buck & Helena share their Newport experiences with listeners. There is adventure, dining, shopping, musings, mumblings, and a lot of laughs.

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, they 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 we will feature a ton 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. It’s about adventure. It’s about romance. It’s about observing the myriad people who walk about the city. It’s about life, parenting, partying, working, aaaaand reflecting. Newport just happens to be the backdrop to all of this. And what a beautiful backdrop it is.

Every Thursday the Sparkle and Boom Podcast Network airs a new episode of That Newport Show. You can stream or download episodes from our website, or listen to the show on iTunes, Stitcher Radio, Blubrry, or your favorite podcatcher app.  We hope you’ll join us!
