By Ian Beabout, Online Editor

As a radio host, it can be very easy to become overwhelmed by music.

The newcomer’s guide to eating sushi

By Jessica Broverman, Contributing Writer

The front runner of food is that it is nourishment. Eating keeps our bodies not only functioning, but also vibrant and healthy. The second part to consuming food is the experience. I’m not just talking about having a nice server and getting yummy food. Eating the same thing gets old and getting creative with food is necessary, but can also be scary.

As an avid sushi eater I will show you what you might enjoy, how to order it, and how to eat it. Feel free to get some chopsticks and a California roll, because we’re jumping right into 寿司 aka sushi.
