A reminder that college towns can be innovative

Living in a college town can sometimes feel like you’re caught in a place that prefers nostalgia to forward progress. Happy Valley Hustle is a nice reminder that’s not always the case. Bill is a great interviewer and really makes a connection with his guests.
