A few years ago, I sat down for a deeply personal interview with Kevin Chemidlin, the host of Philly Who?
This is unlike any other interview I’ve done in the past 20 years of running the wine school. It goes deep into my past, including the tragedies that propelled me from a successful career in journalism into the world of wine.
I’ve been hooked on Philly Who? since the Chill Moody interview: Kevin can coax brilliant and deeply personal stories from all his guests; each episode is a love letter to the creative forces that thrive in Philly. The episodes featuring Judy Wicks (White Dog Cafe), Alex Hillman (Indy Hall), and Nick Stuccio (Philly Fringe) should be required reading to everyone with a dream.
When I had the chance to sit down with Kevin, I jumped at the chance. I’ll never be as deep as Chill Moody, I won’t be as revolutionary as Judy Wicks, but I am deeply honored to be a part of such a group of great Philadelphians. Please check out the podcast, but be warned: there is a LOT of cussing on my part. https://podphillywho.com/

Hey Keith, You really shine in this one! All your best qualities are on display. It’s important for the public to know why you give so much to our community. How you got to this point is so inspiring. Anthony Bourdain would be so proud of the level of honesty and profanity you demonstrated. Our industry needs leaders like you! Thank you for all you do.
Thank you for the kind words. I really appreciate the support. I wasn’t sure how that interview was going to go.
