Ian Smith

Ian, or “buddha” to his family (a nickname he earned as a baby for being both pleasantly plump and Asian), is extremely excited to be working with The New Colony! After arriving in Chicago in 2007, he continues to wonder when Chicago winter will feel like normal winter. A native New Yorker, and apologetic Yankee fan, he promises to never ask you “how YOU doin’?” or to “fuhgeddaboudit.” You can hear his soothing dulcet tones weekly on the Big Dirty Podcast and at Stephanie Izard’s Little Goat Diner where he is employs his skills as a host ninja. Ian is a proud Black Boxer.
