Know Your Baker

Neighbourhood bakers play a hugely positive role in their communities. One that goes far beyond basic nourishment. Their stories deserve to be heard.

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 Josey Baker moved West, it was to advance childhood education.  But a lucky gift of some sourdough started changed everything.

In this episode, Mark and Josey talk about his rapid rise from Community Supported Baker to building out Josey Baker Bread as part of The Mill in San Francisco.  But throughout it all, there is a much deeper discussion of culture, values, privilege, mentors and leadership.  It's a exceptional chat with a very thoughtful baker.
