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.

Amy Scherber is founder of Amy's Bread, an New York City Institution.

Through it all, Amy has been a generous teacher, sharing her knowledge of baking and running a successful business.

In this episode, Mark and Amy talk about the early days of the bakery and how things have changed over 27 years. He also learns what keeps Amy excited as her business grows.
