We had the good fortune of connecting with Parker Edison and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Parker, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
I wanted to organize what I was doing. I had a tight network that I was consistently working with and putting a name to it made it easier to promote.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
The thing I’m working on right now is called ‘The Parker Edison Project’. It’s a KPBS podcast that’s also available on Apple, Stitcher, iTunes or wherever you get your podcasts. It’s basically the conversations I’m having in my real life, recorded on zoom.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
That question hits different these days. I would definitely take them on food tours. The plan would be small breakfast in the morn (fruit or bagels) and go walk around a place like Sunset Cliffs or the OB pier. Stop by OB noodle house for drinks and appetizers. Split for 3hrs (naps/showers). Meet at their hotel for dinner and have doordash deliver black & yellow rolls from Sushi Deli 1 or El Toros from Phil’s BBQ. The week would be variations of that formula…walk somewhere in the morning. Eat a tasty lunch somewhere scenic. A tasty dinner somewhere cozy.
