    EP #15 Hempopotamus!

    On today’s show I am very pleased to finally have with me here in the Tree House Studio, Kim Hussey Ross, the owner of Hempopotamus, one of my very favorite little shops here in East Nashville.
    In this episode Kim and I talk about the good news that Hemp can now be grown by farmers here in Tennessee and elsewhere in the U.S. We talk a bit about the history of Hemp and a future that looks bright for this miracle plant. We also talk about Kim’s own creations – from her hemp based skin care products and hair care products, to her hand made jewelry and other unique creations that are available right here in East Nashville at Hempopotamus. Hempopotamus is located at The Shoppes on Fatherland.
    1006 Fatherland Street, Suite 208.

    And a special thanks to our sponsor Moonshine Cowboy Boot Wax, the Original, All Natural, non-toxic boot wax with a scent of orange. The Nashville Wax Company is now offering Moonshine Biker Boot Wax – yes the same high quality boot wax now available in black.

    Moonshine Miracle Residue Remover is now available at Cumberland Hardware at 1018 Woodland Street @ 5 Points.

    To order a tin of your very own, just go to MoonshineBootwax.com. Buy it there online or check out the growing list of local retailers in and around Nashville who carry these fine boot wax products.

    Y’all be good to each other out there and remember to do something nice for one of your neighbors. It will make you feel good inside!

    EP #14 Surface Outreach and Designs!

    EP #14 Surface Outreach and Designs!

    On today’s show I am privileged to be speaking Whit Gilbert. Whit is an East Nashville guy who owns and operates Surface Outreach and Designs, a local company that builds custom furniture, wood and metal applications and functional art for homes, restaurants, and offices. But more importantly, Surface Outreach and Designs is an outreach program for addicts and alcoholics in early recovery. Whit Gilbert works side by side with these guys through their recovery to help them learn valuable woodworking skills and other skills of the trade. This great company also assists and provides scholarships for people that need treatment but have no means to receive it.
    Whit Gilbert is creating jobs and teaching trades as well as living the recovery life right alongside people who are newly sober. In this episode we also get to learn about Fort Houston, a unique makers space here in Nashville that is redefining how people live and work.

    And a special thanks to our sponsor Moonshine Cowboy Boot Wax, the Original, All Natural, non-toxic boot wax with a scent of orange. The Nashville Wax Company is now offering Moonshine Biker Boot Wax – yes the same high quality boot wax now available in black.
    To order a tin of your very own, just go to MoonshineBootwax.com. Buy it there online or check out the growing list of local retailers in and around Nashville who carry these fine boot wax products.

    Y’all be good to each other out there and remember to do something nice for one of your neighbors. It will make you feel good inside!

An authentic expression of Nashville (and beyond)

This podcast is a great listen not just for Nashvillians, but for anyone interested in big ideas and thoughtful conversation. Well produced but with a down-home neighborly feel, ENN! embodies what makes Nashville such a great place to live or visit - it’s intelligent, creative, and thought-provoking without pretense or stuffiness. Look forward to hearing more!
