I first heard Stephen Satterfield on Bitch Talk Podcast. There, he talked about his childhood in Atlanta, college days in Oregon, and life on a farm in NorCal before he moved to San Francisco in 2010.
In Part 1, Stephen shares the serendipitous story of getting a job at Nopa. He talks about how his work there lead to his involvement with Alice Cravens's program Heat of the Kitchen at Ida B. Wells High School. Restaurants, food, gardens, education ... what's not to love about Stephen Satterfield?
In Part 2, he shares the story of helping Nopa to tell their own stories through Nopalize. The work he did getting that off the ground provided a framework for Stephen's current project--Whetstone Magazine.
Whetstone will be having an issue launch party a week from tonight (June 21) at The Perish Trust on Dividadero. The party starts at 6:30.
We recorded this episode at 4505 BBQ in May 2018.
