Jonathan Lintner is Kicking It at Louisville City FC; Lyle Sussman Writes the Book on Doughnuts


We’ve got spring fever at Rusty Satellite Headquarters, so we’re talking about the first soccer match of the season, coming up Saturday at 2 at Slugger Field. In fact, we can go there right from the goat races in NuLu, another wonderful celebration of spring. My first guest, Jonathan Lintner, handles all things in media for Louisville City FC, keeping up with the team’s social media presence as well as taking care of media requests. A former C-J reporter, Lintner is enjoying all the responsibility involved, and calls the opening weekend of the season his personal Derby.

Dr. Lyle Sussman, who’s been teaching management at the University of Louisville for four decades, scoffed at the idea his daughter had — she wanted to open a donut business. But today Hi-Five Donuts has evolved from a tent to a food truck and now a retail location in Butchertown. So Lyle wrote a book — “Breaking the Glaze Ceiling” — about his daughter’s experience. His subtitle — Sweet Lessons for Entrepreneurs, Innovators and Wannabes, says it all about what’s in the book. Sussman is an accomplished speaker on business topics, and this is the 15th book he’s written.

In the news, well, the President was in town this week, and I was doing my best to ignore it. We learned over at EatDrinkTalk about a new festival coming in September, Bourbon and Beyond, from the same folks who have been producing the successful Louder Than Life event down at Champions Park. And while I realize that UK is still playing in the NCAA Tournament, the Cards’ quick exit offers us some hoops-free time this weekend, so get out and do some stuff you want to do.
