Fireside Chat | Dara Quinn of Emerald of Siam | Thai Food and Live Music, A Winning Combination (Episode 2)

In this special episode, Tri-Citizens brings you the audio from Fuse’s first in a new live event series, Fireside Chats. These quarterly events are hosted at Fuse SPC, a coworking space in Richland, WA.  

I first interviewed Vanessa Cozza and Ron Boninger, two of the event’s organizers. They talked to me about the new series, how it got started, and what they hope comes from it.

Then you’ll hear the audio from the live event where Tyler Soldat interviewed Emerald of Siam’s Dara Quinn. She talks about her family, how Emerald of Siam got started and what they’ve been doing there since then.

RSVP for the next Fireside Chat event on Fuse’s Facebook page. Visit Fuse’s website and follow them on Twitter.
