Great interviews with local folks

This podcast is great. Admittedly I had low expectations for this local production, but Nathan Miller is a great interviewer who chooses interesting guests. It’s been really interesting to learn more about community members I brush elbows with (and those I don’t) - we have a lot of smart, kind, and very cool neighbors.

Great pod

This was the best Finding Asheville pod to date. Great story of a man with a dream...and good BBQ...and better wings.
