If you've listened to the CONSUMED podcast for any length of time, you'll be familiar with the name Chris Lambert. He has edited the show for years, but you probably know him better for his own project, the podcast Your Own Backyard, about the disappearance of Kristin Smart. (If you haven't listened to Your Own Backyard, which was the #1 podcast in the world for some time, do yourself a favor and take a week or so to binge the whole series.)
With the trials of Paul Flores and Ruben Flores over, and Paul Flores sentenced to prison, Chris is busy writing and recording the final episode of that project. But he graciously agreed to sit down with me to talk, not so much about the case itself and all the accolades the podcast has received, but to discuss his creative process. Chris has been a professional musician and singer-songwriter for many years, and has 11 albums under his belt, so he knows a thing or two about how to create something artfully. We chatted about those, about his choices for writing the music for the podcast, and about sequencing when it came to telling Kristin and the Smart family’s story.
And because this is technically a food podcast, YES, we talked about food, too. Chris is a local boy, but has spent a lot of time in Louisiana, so he shares about his relationship with southern food. Random, I know, but this conversation sheds light on what it takes to see a window of opportunity, calculate the angle, and make the leap — just like so many farmers, chefs, winemakers, brewers, and entrepreneurs do in the food and beverage industry every day.
