Meet Phil Wilson, the food-loving man behind the Baconhound blog and the Off Menu podcast.
Truth be told, there’s a good chance you have met Phil, at least virtually, because he is a fixture on the Edmonton blogging scene. He’s a good talker, too, as we used to say in the newsroom, which accounts for his frequent appearances on TV and the radio, and his ease behind the microphone on his own podcast, and on mine.
But I think I got Phil to say some things he hasn’t said before. For one thing, he reveals the subject of the next Baconhound food odyssey. He also talks about how the blog has changed his life and what cooking means to him. And he gushes about his wife, as well he should.
You can find Phil on Twitter (@baconhound), Instagram (@realbaconhound) and Facebook (facebook.com/baconhound). But first, his voice:
