NM0022 – Flamenco Encore

- New Mexico's most Enchanting Video Podcast is back with a Flamenco encore! After posting the previous episode of New Mexicast about "Flamenco in New Mexico," I got the following email from a viewer: "This was a fascinating episode. I have one criticism - we did not get a sense of the power of the flamenco dance and music -the podcast is all a little too "sweet" maybe. Odd that this midwestern Jewish old lady knows about flamenco. But I saw it several times on the stage as an adult. I went to those performances because I had heard the…

NM0021 – Flamenco

- New Mexico's most Enchanting Video Podcast brings you some fantastic flamenco fun this week. While the historic connection between Spain and New Mexico is no secret (after all, the city of Albuquerque gets it's name from the Spanish Duke of Alburquerque... hence the nickname "The Duke City"), until I started working on this story I didn't realize the very real connections that still exist today thanks to the art of flamenco. However, those connections suffered a serious blow recently as the annual flamenco festival which brings many of Spain's top artists to New Mexico, Festival Flamenco Internacional de Alburquerque…

NM0020 – Audio Experiment

New Mexico's most Enchanting Video Podcast is now an audio podcast too! Well, at least for this week. As the title suggests, I am just experimenting with an audio episode of New Mexicast to see what my viewers/subscribers think. Take a listen and let me know what you think by posting a comment here on the website or by sending me an email at RLR@NewMexicast.com If you hate it, tell me so. If you think it's a nice addition for the off-weeks, tell me that too. Bottom line is I will keep doing them if more people enjoy them than…

NM0019 – Fiery Foods

- New Mexico's most Enchanting Video Podcast gets even hotter this week with a trip to the Fiery Foods and BBQ Show at the Sandia Resort and Casino in Albuquerque. I first interviewed Dave DeWitt, Co-Producer of the Fiery Foods & BBQ Show, more than 10 years ago right after I moved to Albuquerque to work at KOAT-7. Back then I didn't know the first thing about chile (or chili for that matter). That interview was a crash course in Southwestern cuisine for me. While I am still a certified "wimp" when it comes to spicy food, I have come…

NM0018 – Falk Family Finale

- Dear Friends, I am so excited to bring you the final installment of the Falk family story. This is part four of a series about Holocaust survivor Gabrielle Falk and her family. This episode focuses on how Gabrielle's parents, Walther and Ellinor Freund survived the Holocaust and how the family reunited after the war. While I know my work on this series can never really do the story justice, I hope it will at least give you a glimpse at an amazing person and help us all to never forget. Thank you to Irene Uffrecht-Peters for the photos from…

NM0015 – Hiatus

- Happy New Year my dear friends & family! I must begin this new year with an apology. Sorry that I haven't posted an episode (or an explanation) in several weeks. As with so many other families during the holiday season, we had too many commitments and not enough time. In fact, I am typing this from my parent's house in Chicago while the girls (and their cousins) are napping upstairs. I hope you will all understand that this is not a case of "podfading" (the term for podcasts that suddenly disappear into the twilight). The next episode of New…

NM0014 – Family Historian

- Hello Friends! Have you ever undertaken a project that you were excited about only to wonder if you are out of your league? Well, this week's story is like that for me. In fact, the story is so important that I have decided to turn it into a two part series (which has never been done before here on New Mexicast). So this week's episode is part one. It is about an amazing man named Stephen Falk. He has made it his personal mission to research his family tree and to preserve what he can after so much damage…

NM0013 – Stocking Stuffers

- Hello friends and happy Thanksgiving! It is the time of year where our thoughts turn to family, friends and opening our hearts. You know I never ask for anything from you all (Other than watching every episode, subscribing to and spreading the word about New Mexicast, posting comments and taking a survey... okay, so I do ask a lot of you! LOL!) but I thought I would put an appeal out there to help a great cause this holiday season. One year ago this month, we lost my dear father-in-law, Dr. Sam Goldfein. Because he was always dedicated to…

NM0012 – Pinto Bean Fiesta

- Hello Friends! I hope you are all enjoying the change of weather as much as we are. We recently traveled to Binghamton, New York where the leaves were changing brillant shades of yellow, orange and red. Back here in New Mexico we have been enjoying pinon picking (pine nuts) and lots of sunshine one day and snow the next. This week's episode comes to you a month late (since I forgot to hit "publish" and it never was posted last month) and after¬†plenty¬†of technical mistakes on my part. While on vacation in Puerto Penasco, Mexico my husband graciously shot…

NM0011 – Pumpkin Patch

- Hello Friends! I have to say I don't know what's more frustrating... the fact that my brain is so fried that I forgot to hit "publish" for the last episode and managed to not post any story at all (which means there have been no updates here for a month), or the fact that it took me two weeks to notice. So, dear viewers, please accept my sincere apologies for shortchanging you this month. Still, despite my gross oversight, because it is almost Halloween I am going to go ahead and post the episode I was planning to post…

NM0010 – Balloon Fiesta

- Hello Friends! This week I am happy to share with you one of the reasons I fell in love with New Mexico more than 10 years ago; The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. It is an annual tradition unlike anything I have ever seen. As waves of hot air balloons take flight (more than 700 in all!) spectators get to walk among them. It is a beautiful experience for people of all ages. For more information about the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, visit www.BalloonFiesta.com Now I would like to ask for feedback from all of you wonderful viewers. Recently a…
