About Us

The Main Course was the first show to ever debut on Heritage Radio Network (HRN) back in April 2009 and the first show to reach 200 episodes! Now called The Main Course O.G., its original host and HRN founder, Patrick Martins is joined by Emily Pearson of Heritage Foods, Brandon Hoy owner of Roberta’s and author/musician-in-residence, Mike Edison. Each week special guests join the panel to discuss entertaining topics of the moment in a no-holds-barred roundtable format that will surely make you laugh — from CBD oil to Meghan Markle to Jewish tête-oir and stories of iconic food and culture visionaries. The round table is followed by a short interview with our visiting guests which include America’s smartest chefs, farmers, artisans, and activists.
