Mindi Weekdays 2 - 6pm

Inspired by the music of The Beach Boys, Mindi left her childhood home of New Jersey to head to sunny California and has never looked back. Some of her career highlights are: publicist for The Mystic Theatre, English Teacher in the inner city, Marketing Manager for a dot-com, and her current gig as Marketing Director of City Winery Napa. She is also a freelance writer for such publications as the Marketplace Magazine and San Francisco Bay Guardian. She once sold all her earthly possessions and moved to Prague, Czech Republic all by herself. In her  "spare time" she likes to play drums and guitar in her band, Ohmygodyouguys, swim, cook, eat, crack jokes, and hang out with her pound puppy.  As host of Drive Time with Mindi, she is thrilled that both of her jobs primarily involve music and talking.

This holiday has me reflecting a bit on the time I spent out of the country.  After college, I sold all my earthly possessions and moved, by myself to Prague, Czech Republic, the former Czechoslovakia.  I lived there for three years, and wouldn't trade the experience for anything in the world.  Part of the benefit of living outside of the US is the perspective it gives you on your own country, you see and appreciate things that we normally take from granted in our day-to-day lives.  The freedoms we are afforded, the access to fresh food, water, and other products, just to name a few.  I lived there after the Velvet Revolution, and while things were much better than they were of course under the communist regime, there was still along way to go.  As a foodie living in the Napa Valley, I am constantly amazed and appreciative of all we have access to here.  I vividly remember one day in Prague, walking in my local market and actually tearing up because they had added a new vegetable to the shelves!  Happy Fourth of July!
