Love Catching Up on What's Happening in Roanoke

Enjoying this new local podcast. The hosts give a thoughtful rundown of goings-on in Roanoke and nearby communities. In the episodes I heard, they highlight some happennings I was aware of and some others I hadn't been following. There was a great mix of arts, food and community events. I'll be tuning in again for sure.
