Welcome to Mirepoix Podcast, I’m your host Joe Schupbach. I’m a writer, theatre-maker, and food enthusiast and I’m taking you on a journey through food, family, and culture via the lens of food practice and tradition.
Welcome to the season 2 premiere of Mirepoix. I have a very special episode for you today! I have brought together three of my favorite Disney Park experts and we are deep-diving into the food and beverages at some of our favorite Disney parks. My guests are:
Hair Stylist and Designer Kassi Bleifuess

***Today’s episode has a completely different menu of questions and focus. The classic Mirepoix Menu will return in the next episode.
This week's conversation is with my mom, Kathleen O'Donoghue! Kathy is a foster parent, hospice chaplain, and has been my mom for over 36 years. This is the final episode of season 1 of Mirepoix Podcast, and I will return in 2021 with a second season. In the meantime, check out my link tree for a myriad of ways to engage with Mirepoix until we feast again!
This week's conversation is with chef and travel agent, Ti Winters! Ti is a classically trained chef, a foreign language teacher, and the creator of Savage Travel.
Note: Our connection was choppy the day of our interview, so this interview has been edited for clarity.
As you may know, among other things I am a writer. Here is an essay I wrote this month on the topic of mirepoix, food practice, and family. Tune into Mirepoix's Instagram at 11 am CDT on Sunday, October 18 for a live Q&A with yours truly.
This week's episode is a conversation with therapist Hannah Schupbach. Hannah is a mental health advocate, a visual artist, creator of the Instagram Bad Therapist, and just so happens to be my sister. Follow @bad.therapist_ for more about Hannah.
I had the pleasure to sit down with advocate Imron Bhatti. Imron is an attorney working for mote equitable cities through better transportation, land use, and housing practice and is an agriculture and food justice advocate.
I had the pleasure to sit down with holistic health & lifestyle coach Simi Botic. Simi is a certified holistic health coach, Intuitive Eating counselor, and the author of Letting Go Of Leo: How I Broke Up With Perfection.
Mirepoix is a journey through food, family, and culture via the lens of food practice and tradition. I’m your host Joe Schupbach. I’m a writer, theatre-maker, and food enthusiast. Over the next few months, we will be learning about food and food practice through interviews with some of my favorite colleagues and collaborators. We will delve deep into favorite foods, childhood memories, and contemporary food practices, all while thinking critically about how America monetizes, commodifies, and colonizes food and the people that make it. We’ll laugh, we’ll cry, and we’ll get hungry! Tune in on August 16 to hear from comedian Christina Anthony, Aug 23 for writer Ricardo Gamboa, and Aug 30 for health and lifestyle coach Simi Botic. Till we feast again!
