About a week before the Covid-19 quarantine hit home, I was in Wichita, Kansas, researching a local specialty for what would be my last travel article/video as a full-fledged travel writer. (On the way home, I pulled off the road to take a call – a job offer from my new job as a host of an art show for Oklahoma’s PBS member station, OETA!)
The bierock is a Volga-German specialty, a meat-filled bun that is impossible not to love. You get them from German restaurants made from shipping containers or drive-thru windows of former taco stands.
I’ll probably still write the occasional travel article – if I get takers – but the focus now is producing scripts and hosting art for TV. I’m happy with it.
