Adam Ragusea is a journalist who got his start in public radio. But in the last few years, he’s turned his focus to cooking, recipes, and food science on YouTube and has become somewhat of an internet sensation. He also happens to live in Knoxville. WUOT’s Chrissy Keuper and WUOT News intern and podcaster Austin Toy spoke with Ragusea about the viability of cooking at home, the authenticity of self-published media, and the importance of being adaptable in the modern media landscape.

Chrissy is WUOT's News Director and host of monthly public affairs talk show Dialogue. Her first job with the station was as weekend student announcer while earning her bachelor's in Anthropology from the University of Tennessee. She has been the station's local host for NPR's Morning Edition and All Things Considered news programs; occasionally fills in as host for WUOT's Morning and Afternoon Concerts; and has won multiple awards for her interviews, feature stories, and Dialogue.
