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.

Today is a special five person podcast!  Coinciding with the world premiere of Bakers Dozen Stories, a series of short documentary films about bakers and their craft, we are joined by the filmmakers and the bakers featured in the first film, FERMENT.

Andre and Rafa teamed up to make Ferment Boulder, a micro bakery with a ton of heart and some seriously fast delivery bikes.  Brian is a filmmaker and gifted storyteller with a passion for bread.  And Ian is a photographer who is used to filming on cliff faces, but can also get up close and personal with a ball of dough.

Together, they have created a feast for all the senses - a film with heart and humour, and the imagery of Chef's Table and the Tour de France.
