Episode 1: "So you're a real waitress?" - Welcome to In The Service, a podcast about the service industry from the front of house perspective. Meet your hosts, "Kath" and "Jan" who are two rad chicks living and serving in New York City. They'll tell you everything, except their real names.

Episode 4: "Waitress Was Mean" - Our favorite Yelp reviews about ourselves and our co-servers feat. Jen Neal. Everyone thinks that they're a restaurant critic and reviewer on Yelp and Open Table. Kath and Jan discuss how they think these public reviews have affected the restaurant industry and their jobs as servers. Yelp is also the reason that they'll never use their real names during service. Here to chat is special guest, Jen Neal about her experience in the industry pre and post Yelp!

Episode 5: 'Women in the Industry' ft. Charlie.Despite the fact that it's 2017, Bey is queen and the #FutureIsFemale, there is still a lot of gender inequality in the workplace - especially in the service industry. In celebration of Women's History Month, Kath & Jan discuss there is still a big difference in how guests treat, tip and act towards female servers, bartenders and sommeliers versus their behavior towards men in the industry. Kath & Jan are joined by guest, Charlie, a sommelier in midtown manhattan who shares her experience. 

KATH: lawyer by day, bartender by night.

JAN: serves up comedy and also food.

The theme song to In The Service was written for the show by Matt Decaro. Matt Decaro is a singer / songwriter who performs in Brooklyn and Manhattan. His new album, Mostly Sad Kinda Funny is available on iTunes and Spotify.
