Austin - The Liquid Diet DJ Profile

Austin arrived in the Chicago area from the Buckeye state a decade or so ago, with far more enthusiasm than direction. After fumbling his way through college, his liberal arts degree gave him a logical path into Chicago's craft beer industry,  where he currently manages, at the city's oldest brewpub.

Outside of employment, Austin's interests range from playing music, to writing music, to writing about music, to discussing music -- with the occasional foray into politics and other forms of art. But also, music.

Austin hosts The Liquid Diet on CHIRP Thursdays from noon to 3pm. He subs very occasionally, but it's always a technically-imperfect, mangled treat when it happens.
