QT Pi(e) and Pals at The Waffle Shop
Here is a bit about The Waffle Shop from the waffle iron masters:
The Waffle Shop is a neighborhood restaurant that produces and broadcasts a live-streaming talk show with its customers, operates a changeable storytelling billboard on its roof, and runs a take-out window that sells food from countries engaged in conflict with the U.S. The shop is a public lab that brings together people from all walks of life to engage in dialogue, experimentation and the co-production of culture. The project functions as a classroom for students from Carnegie Mellon University, an eatery, a TV production studio, a social catalyst, and a business. Our customers are our funders, audience, and participants as we film during open hours, inviting interested patrons to express their unique opinions and personalities.
On June 13, 2010, The QT Pi(e) Project hosted a talk show at The Waffle Shop. We were the follow up act to a former astronaut who spoke about space food and adventures beyond the bounds of earth. For our segment, we interviewed participants of our “Pie Luck” and engaged the audience with questions and a contest.
Why would I be yelling at Erin? I probably wanted more pictures!
For the interview segment to ours, Tom Totin of “Cookspeak” interviewed a former astronaut! They talked about space food and adventures.
