    Melissa Ruggieri and Rodney Ho's least favorite songs

    Sometimes artists are so popular that radio plays their singles and fans buy them because of unyielding devotion, not artistic genius. The diehard fans might love them all, but the rest of us see things a little differently. Melissa Ruggieri and Radio and TV Talk blogger Rodney Ho recently compiled a list of their least favorite songs from some major artists and they’ll join us on this week’s podcast to talk about this very contentious list.

    Interview with Steven L. Anderson of Day and Night Projects

    From Buckhead galleries where works run into the five digits to scruffier indie art spaces populated by Gen Z-types in mom jeans, Atlanta gallery owners can sometimes seem more anxious to chew the fat about the art on the walls than sell it. Hospitality and accessibility are hallmarks of Atlanta’s art scene, which makes it easy to dip a toe in, no matter what your art education. AJC contributor and art critic Felicia Feaster brought us a roundup a few local galleries and spoke with a few local gallery owners. On this week’s podcast, she brings us her conversation with Steven L. Anderson, co-director of Day and Night Projects.

    Levity Farms interview

    Where does your food come from? Sure, ultimately, you might be getting it from a grocery store or maybe even a farmer’s market, but before it gets there, someone had to cultivate it, grow it, get it ready for that market. The AJC is taking a look at some of the Georgia folks providing our food with the Georgia on My Plate series. On this week’s podcast, food and dining editor Ligaya Figueras is here to bring us one of her conversations with local farmers.
