The Rise Up! Podcast is a celebration of bakers, the bakeries they create and the people they serve.

Join Mark Dyck as he talks with bakers and bakery owners from across North America and around the world. Hear about their struggles and triumphs and learn about the satisfaction that feeding a community can provide.

When Rachel Wyman sees a need, she does what it takes to meet it, whether it's making life easier for her regulars, motivating local runners with the promise of fresh doughnuts or feeding workers being ignored by the government.  And if the problem is many times larger than anticipated, so be it.

In this episode, Mark and Rachel talk about her early days baking at Bread Alone and Amy's Bread, embracing being known as the 'doughnut lady', the changing face of baking during Covid, and the thrill of opening her second location in New Paltz, NY.
