Local Listening at it’s Finest
My family and I just recently relocated to the Marietta area and stumbled upon Bill’s podcast. It is such a wonderful way to find out more from the local businesses that my family and I love. We have found new things to do and people to support as a result of listening. Marietta Stories is an excellent example of people helping people and I would highly recommend to Atlanta and Cobb residents.
Always an interesting story about everyday people in a wonderful town!
