During the show I talk about 7 mistakes everyone makes with cheese, and article in Business Insider Australia which I expanded upon. I believe that my version is much better.
You can find the orginal article here; http://www.businessinsider.com.au/storing-and-serving-cheese-2015-2
I also promote the Canadian Amateur Cheesemaking Competition coordinated by Ian Treuer from www.muchtodoaboutcheese.com. Here are the details;
Competition in works for amateur cheesemakers
The cheese lovers who organize The Great Canadian Cheese Festival every June are planning to host the first-ever Canadian Amateur Cheesemaking Competition—possibly expanding the contest to include homecheesemakers in the U.S.The mission is to recognize and honour the best in amateur cheesemaking and to provide encouragement and feedback to home cheesemakers.
Would you be interested in entering your cheese for judging? You won’t personally have to be present to participate as you can safely ship cheese in a cooled box. Please indicate your interest by emailing Ian Treuer at firstname.lastname@example.org. Ian, who blogs about his adventures as a home cheesemaker, is acting as Competition Co-ordinator. Check out Much To Do About Cheese at www.muchtodoaboutcheese.com.
Awards will be presented for best in each cheese division. Judging reports will be issued for each cheese entered.
The first amateur competition will take place this June 6-7 in conjunction with the fifth anniversary Great Canadian Cheese Festival in Picton, Ontario, two hours east of Toronto, three hours north of Syracuse, New York. Festival website: www.cheesefestival.ca.
I also answer voicemail questions about Rennet strength, Mixing Ricotta with curd from another batch, Cream cheese ingredients, Brining Feta without the sloppiness, and Basement humidity.

Don’t be shy, I love answering your questions, and without them there isn’t a show to record.
Until next time curd nerds, Keep Calm & Make Cheese!
