Guest host Becci Lubbers, Alex, and Kris recorded an on-site episode early last summer at one of Walla Walla's sweetest treasures. The Colville Street Patisserie is a French bakery and cafe in the heart of downtown and features some of the greatest handmade desserts that can be found for hours of driving in any direction. The three discuss the nature of memory, how scent is tied to it, and how individual taste develops and evolves for us as humans. They explore the concepts of greatness and rarity, exclusivity and scarcity. Finally, they talked about the important qualitative differences between quantity and quality.
On a week when Jenn Ogden was unavailable, we are grateful that Becci happily stepped in. Becci owns Shop Eleven in downtown Walla Walla, a small jewelry and gift shop that has developed quite a following from locals who love to purchase handmade treasures, most of which from Shop Eleven originate from the NorthWest. Thank you once again Becci!
We must also apologize for the errors that are obvious at the close of this episode. We are a small, volunteer, amateur operation and on this particular recording, our equipment encountered a problem unbeknownst to us. The final 5 minutes are still decipherable, but just barely. Our editors chose to put the material out as it is, because replicating the recording session to fix it is untenable now, 4 months later.
