Wherever you are right now, take a look around. Whether you’re at home, at work, in the car, on your bike, or in a restaurant, it’s almost 100% certain you’ll see someone looking at their phone. More than likely, that someone is you! Both of Peter’s guests on this edition of Out to Lunch would like you to put your phone down. And get some exercise.

Tania Hahn, playground diva

Tania Hahn

Tania Hahn is the owner of a company called Hahn Enterprises. Hahn Enterprises installs commercial gym equipment, and all the components, big or small, that go into outdoor playgrounds and sports stadiums. That includes everything from bleachers to monkey bars, and scoreboards to trash cans.

If you’re wondering where in New Orleans you can see Tania’s work, the answer is, pretty much everywhere. From the Superdome to every single school in Orleans Parish.

Dog owner's best friend, Leigh Isaacson

Leigh Isaacson

Leigh Isaacson would like you to put your phone down and get out into the real world. With your dog. But first, you need your phone to use Leigh’s app. It’s called Dig – The Dog Person’s Dating App.

Yes, Dig is a dating app aimed specifically at dog owners. If you’re a single person whose dog is an important part of your life, Dig filters out possible partners who don’t like dogs. And it puts dog lovers on a path to find love with a human.
