Czarniak recently launched her new podcast “Lunch with Lindsay,” where she dives deep into the stories that connect us all through interviews with high profile guests, athletes, musicians and more. Her recent work also includes hosting partnerships with the Indy 500 and America’s Best Racing.

The Best Bagger Championship is a nationwide promotion for supermarket employees that highlights in friendly competition the important service skill of bagging groceries. Participants advance to the final event by winning regional competitions in their home states.
