Feels like talking to a long time friend

I had the opportunity to be on Donnie’s show and it felt like sitting down and talking to a long time friend. He makes you feel so comfortable and not awkward at all. Listening to his other episodes you get the same feeling with others. It’s just a casual and passionate conversation and I really enjoy listen and getting to know other local businesses in my area and how they got started, what their passion is and learning something new. I only follow three podcasts and Palm Harbor Locals is one of them!

And if you’re a resident, you’ll love learning about the best local places to live, work, and play.

It’s a must on your podcast playlist!
