We sit down with former Erie County Executive Joel Giambra about running for office at 25, surviving cancer and, of course, his quest to legalize marijuana. Hear Joel’s thoughts on going beyond bongs and trying to bring billions in revenue to New York State by lifting prohibition of weed.
We sit down with Tom Jablonski and Jon Mirro from Lockhouse Distillery to talk about the (true) stories behind Buffalo’s first distillery (post-prohibition). We hear about the great Gins and Liquors that are coming out of this award winning distillery, how flooding the distillery didn’t slow them down, and the true story of how they named the distillery.
Harry Zemsky, the brain behind Food Truck Tuesdays in Larkin Square, sits down with us to explain how a crazy Slovakian guy helped him realize his passion for food. He tells about some of his new projects The Angelica Tea Room, The Swan Street Diner, and we embarrass him with a blast from the past.

This week The Buffalo Effect sits down with Thea Hassan and Jenn White to talk biking in Buffalo. It’s spring and May is bike month, so we discuss Reddy Bike, bike commuting, and all the great new trails in Buffalo that you should be taking advantage of.
On this episode of The Buffalo Effect Stanton Hudson shares his interesting career, a brief stint in law school that had stops and starts due to a little TOO much fun in Buffalo, and what led to him becoming the Executive Director of The Theodore Rosevelt Inaugural Site.
Frank Rossi, actor, writer, teacher, agent, manager, casting director, and Buffalo re-pat sits down to talk about what it took to make it in Hollywood. Turns out it takes sneaking into the Paramount lot, showing up uninvited to auditions, and putting a gun down Woody Harrelson’s underwear.
Frank has starred in Miami Vice, Blue Chips, and other films, but he is probably best known for his role as “Frank Stucco” in White Men Can’t Jump. Frank is a great story teller and we hope you enjoy this episode as much as we do!
