Sprudge Podcast Network

Welcome to the home page for Sprudge’s family of podcasts including The Coffee Sprudgecast, A Better Table, Seed To Cup, and No Free Refills.

The Coffee Sprudgecast

The Coffee Sprudgecast launched back in February of 2016. Along the way we’ve taped shows from the TED conference, journeyed to the London Coffee Festival, hosted a live variety show in New York’s East Village, recorded across Europe with stops in Berlin, Amsterdam, and Paris, talked through years of Sprudgie Award winners and nominees, offered special correspondent coverage from barista competitions around the world, and interviewed artists, baristas, founders, collaborators, culture mavens and all the rest of the fascinating people who make up the world of specialty coffee.

No Free Refills with Ezra Baker and Tymika Lawrence

No Free Refills is a pop culture podcast hosted by Ezra Baker (Stumptown Coffee) and Tymika Lawrence (Atlas Coffee), produced by Sprudge collaborator Jeremy Hernandez. This is a totally new and different kind of coffee show: pop culture obsessives Ezra Baker and Tymika Lawrence are offering guided deep dives into the world of reality TV, internet culture, and modern life. Fueled by a delicious pot of coffee at the start of each episode, our hosts tackle the big issues, revel in the mess, and offer plenty of laughs along the way.

A Better Table with Umeko Motoyoshi

A Better Table is hosted by Sprudgie Award-winning journalist and community organizer Umeko Motoyoshi. This show is a journalistic deep dive into the topics that matter in today’s coffee world, from disability access to coffee producer rights at origin to labor organizing in the modern coffee workforce, and much, much more. Motoyoshi’s fearless journalism isn’t afraid to ask big questions: who is coffee for, what ways can we challenge existing systems, and how do we come together to create a better table for all.

Inspired by interview podcasts, late-night TV and radio, Seed To Cup is our chance to learn the origin stories of the companies, founders, and major coffee culture movers that help shape the industry.
