VegheadRedhead ,

SO helpful for an AVL newbie!

I found Sarah & Tony’s podcast while searching for any & all info that would help my transition from living in Florida to Asheville. Their episodes about moving to the area & other wrap-ups have been SO, so helpful. Interviews with locals are getting me excited to dive into the local culture. This is a great podcast for anyone wanting to adventure out & really understand a deeper layer of Asheville localism!

Learning & loving it!

I recently stumbled across this podcast and have learned SO much about Asheville and the creative community here. I’ve lived in the area for 9 years and love the refreshing and fun (...and interesting!) tone of Making it in Asheville. Keep up the great work!

Learning new things about Asheville everyday

We moved to Asheville 3+ years ago and are constantly discovering things about our new hometown. Making it in Asheville has discussed many people and places we did not know about. Thank you!! We love Asheville as much as you do and enjoy sharing your passion for this wonderful place.
