(AUDIO) Adam Dick is Holding Up

How’s this heatwave been treating you? Rough stuff, right? But have you had to worry about thousands of pounds of your precious chocolate melting down? No! That’s likely because you are not Adam Dick, one of the founders of Humboldt-based Dick Taylor Craft Chocolate. Lucky you! 

Adam Dick, chocolatier and mando man

Adam was kind enough to step away from potential “chocolate catastrophe” to Zoom with us from his Eureka factory as part of this week’s edition of Humboldt Holding Up, LoCO’s ramshackle podcast-ish series featuring local people sharing their pandemic-era experiences. We’re talkin’ fudge pops, people! Get pumped. 

But classy chocolate isn’t the only goodness Adam is putting out into the world. He and his bandmates in Huckleberry Flint — one of Humboldt’s most enduring and revered musical institutions — just this weekend released a virtual concert to celebrate the efforts of the Northcoast Regional Land Trust. Shelter-in-place restrictions prevented the group from staging this year’s benefit show for NCRLT, so the group has taken the toe-tappin’ online.
