Restaurant Workers Dish Up Hilarity and Humanity with New ART19 Podcast Network Dedicated to the Service Industry


If you’ve ever worked Mother’s Day brunch on two hours of sleep, right this way, please. One Star Network is a podcast collective partnered with ART19 creating the first network hosted and created by servers, bartenders, chefs and line cooks who have a lot to say about the jobs we all love to hate.

With the onslaught of wildly popular social media accounts like “Tip or Go Home”, “Lady Line Cooks”, and “Confessions of a Server”, this 16 million strong and growing American workforce is demanding recognition. Throw one year of a pandemic onto an already problematic industry and you end up with… a podcast network.

Stuffed with a savory filling of “edutainment,” One Star Network’s shows teach listeners the history, and sweat equity that goes into this historically inequitable line of work. Learn anything from where the custom of tipping originated, to why your server vanished for twenty minutes. (They were crying in the walk-in). We’ve even got your section covered when it comes to support for mental health and substance abuse, or learning how to unionize.
