Hi! My name is Stephanie Hansen and I’m the podcaster, brand amplifier and social commentator behind StephaniesDish.com and @MakersofMN. It all began in 2005 when Stephanie March (Food Editor for Mpls.St.Paul Magazine) and I started the radio show #WeeklyDish on the Twin Cities station FM107.1. 15 years later, the show is going strong. You can listen every week live on Saturdays from 9 to 11 a.m., or find the podcast of each show where you find your favorite podcasts.

As a blogger and photographer, I love to cook, but I really love to eat. The restaurant scene in Minneapolis and Saint Paul is vibrant and exciting. On my website I love to talk about my eating and dining experiences, then do radio shows with some of the movers and shakers in the industry. To experience what I experience when I experience it, follow me on Instagram @StephaniesDish.

And I don’t stop there. I spent 15 years building a printing and graphic design business that was recently sold. I think of myself as a local entrepreneur, and in 2014 I won The Business Woman of the Year award. I enjoy talking to other local entrepreneurs on my podcast @makersofmn. I love interviewing craftsmen that create interesting products and new businesses. The @makersofmn episodes are posted on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook or you can find them where you find your favorite shows.

Finally, I am a social commentator on my community and what I see in the world around me. I am a broadcaster with a big mouth and I intend to use it!

I am a #minnfluencer on social media and write posts for organizations around the Twin Cities as well as manage their social media accounts. Need help getting the word out about your restaurant, retail store or unique product? Don’t hesitate to drop me an e-mail. I love to take on new challenges.
