Audrey is a huge fan of "mentorship" e.g. someone you can run things by. It doesn't have to be as formal as, OMG DO YOU WANT TO BE MY MENTOR.. Do you actually need a mentor going into the pizza business? Sure you can do it all yourself, but what if your intuition/education sets you up for a less than ideal situation? Or what if it leads you to leasing a terrible location? If you have a person who is as passionate as you are in the business, they may be able to guide you from getting yourself into sticky situations. Who is Audrey's pizza mentor? Want to learn more about sourdough from someone who has been on Diners Drive Ins and Dives? Listen to the show and find out!

Audrey: I think it's like that support that not only like enables you to have a business because you know, you need support to have it not only from your community but like your peers. But it also allows you to, like keep wanting to do it. Because there's a lot of days that are hard. And for me at least, it's like my family and the people in the pizza community that you know, like, they're doing the same thing as you and they know what you're going through. And it makes you want to keep doing it.
Eidref: Thank you so much for tuning in to the What's Good Dough Podcast. I hope you enjoy it. And I hope you share it. If you want to get in touch with me, follow us on Instagram. What's good and remember to always ask what's good dough? What's happening? What's up Yo, it's your boy, Eidref. Hi, I'm doing today. I'm doing great in case any of you were wondering. Today we have an amazing episode with Audrey from Audrey Jane's pizza garage over in Boulder, Colorado. You may have seen her before, on one of my favorite shows, Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. It's possible you've seen one of her pizza demonstrations over at Pizza today. Or maybe you were in her class last week. Her pizza making class with Breville, Meet the Makers where she did sourdough. If you missed it, we're gonna do you know a little bit of talking about sourdough. We're gonna talk a lot about mentorship and how this community is just so awesome. We talk about a whole bunch of things. So go ahead and sit back, relax and enjoy the show. And remember to let me know was good dough. Audrey, thank you so much for joining me today. How are you?
Audrey: I’m good. Thanks for having me.
Eidref: Awesome. I appreciate it. I read a little bit about you on your website. And I thought, how perfect is it that she already lists kind of her first memories of pizza in a sense, or why she loves it, but I kind of wanted to see if you could just expand a little bit more on those two times that you fell in love with pizza. With, you know, your mother putting sesame seeds on her pizza crust and then falling in love with it. Just sampling it in Italy, right?
