Welcome to Cold Oatmeal, a production of Resch Strategies, concocted from the creative think tank that is 230 N. Washington Square, Suite 200. With topics ranging from the latest news headlines and future crisis communications case studies to what we had for dinner last night and what’s happening across Michigan and the nation.
We know what you’re thinking, though. The name. What’s cold oatmeal have to do with a PR podcast? It’s explained in our pilot episode, but it’s pretty simple. Like the popular breakfast of one our colleagues, it’s “good for us, it’s fun, it’s got some funny elements to it and it was one of the first things that really got us all talking as an office.”
Get to know the people behind the voices you’ll hear from on our website and feel free to drop us a line with any comments, questions or suggestions.
We love stories about people who take a chance and start something cool. We especially love stories about people who take a chance, start something cool and become the very best in the country at doing it.
That’s Linda Hundt’s story, creator of the Sweetie-licous bakery and winner of 19 National Pie Championships.
If we’ve said it once, we’ve said it a million times: running the Cold Oatmeal podcast is just like running the programing for Michigan’s biggest public radio station, and today we prove it!
With us is Zoe Clark, program director for Michigan Radio.
Play ball! The national pastime is back, and so is the Cold Oatmeal podcast.

Road trippin’ it! Joe bought a plastic tub, and the team hit the road to visit Michigan’s oldest restaurant.
Today, we tackle a topic ignored by the masses for just too long… the weather. That’s right. It’s time we shine the light of day on this issue that no one ever wants to talk about.
Ahmad Bajjey joins us to bring some serious weather knowledge to the podcast. Ahmad is an award-winning meteorologist with NBC25 in Flint, and he’s awesome.
Deb Hart is an icon… a fixture on Lansing drive-time radio since she got into the business at the age 19.
