Nancy and Erin (she’s back for one more episode!) host their first live show from the lobby of downtown’s historic Texaco building – now a luxury apartment tower called The Star. In front of about 25 of their most loyal listeners, the ladies interview Dean Strombom, an architect with Gensler, about how the office of the future is changing the way people work.
A wave of new restaurants connected to local superchefs (such as James Beard Award-winning Hugo Ortega of Hugo’s and Chris Shepherd of Underbelly) are beginning to congregate in an unlikely place: the airport. From farm-to-table to Asian-fusion, the dining concepts at George Bush Intercontinental Airport are expanding as the city catches up with a national trend. Chronicle reporter Nancy Sarnoff is joined by food editor Greg Morago to discuss how airports are offering more restaurants that reflect the local flair.
On Erin's last official episode of Looped In, she and Nancy share memories of their past year podcasting about the quirks, the curiosities and the characters that define Houston real estate.
Looped In will continue, but the pair's nearly year-long partnership has come to an end following Erin's recent relocation to Washington D.C.
Before ending the episode, Nancy and Chronicle multimedia director Scott Kingsley put Erin in the hot seat for a final lighting round of questions.
Eek! We’re recording our next episode in front of a live audience. Want be part of our first live show? Listen for details.
