We are talking All About Hoagies on our latest episode of Dining On A Dime.

First, we heard from Chef Gene Blum on the history of the hoagie and it’s origins in Philadelphia.  We then spoke with COO Eric Bonner from Primo Hoagies and found out where the franchise started, and how they use the highest quality ingredients to make every bite you eat a consistent and delicious experience.  Of course we emphatically agree as we were treated to Primo Hoagies Bada Bing, Turkey and Cheese, Italian, and Ham and Cheese hoagies in our studio! And for everyone listening, be sure to stay tuned to find out about the great deals you can get from any Primo Hoagies locations using their app to celebrate National Hoagie Day on May 5th!   Find them at

We also had Michael Tuono who is the owner and chef behind TN Homemade Kitchen as well as Jeet food truck who brought in some of his newest culinary creations–the Phried Hoagie.  Yes, we say PHried because this is a Philly-based delicacy created by a Philadelphia native.  Find them online at

Lastly, we heard from Banh Mi and Bottles Owner, Tuan Phung, as he discussed the popular Vietnamese Hoagie: Banh Mi.  So as we took bites of the delightful Braised Pork Belly Banh Mi hoagie, we learned when Banh Mi’s were created, as well as how they are made.  Online at

Jewish Perspectives on the News and Politics with Burt Siegel

This program will not hold back on what the host and his guests believe is wrong with an American society in which anti-Jewish sentiments as well as racism have become too often tolerated, where cooperation across party lines is treated as treachery, where immigrants and refugees are seen as a threat to the “American Way of Life” and the gap between the ultra wealthy and the average American is ever widening. While it will reflect the values of Judaism and the Democratic party all are welcomed to share their thoughts regarding how we can achieve the dream of what our nation aspires to be about.
