I have known Alia Akkam since I was about 12 years old. However, I’ve only known Alia Akkam for about two years. We went to high school together and never said much to each other. Not for any reason. Just because sometimes, that’s what happens. About two years ago when I started writing the WBUT blog, she got in touch with me. We have been friends ever since. She is a food and beverage writer, but her talents go way beyond that. She is an alarmingly talented writer and it was great to finally get her on the podcast. This is a good one.
