Welcome to a new episode of A Better Table, a podcast on the Sprudge Media Network where host Umeko Motoyoshi talks to guests and discusses social, economic, and environmental sustainability. “Sustainability means a lot of different things, but here are my guiding questions, the questions I want to explore,” explains Motoyoshi. “What sustains communities? What sustains relationships? What sustains your heart?”

In this episode, Motoyoshi interviews Marissa Childers, founder of Coffee Asians and co-founder of Tanbrown Coffee. Marissa Childers is a member of the Sprudge Twenty class of 2022—read their Sprudge Twenty interview here, and listen below for a lively interview with Umeko Motoyoshi.
