Sitting at the table with cool kids!
*Updated- I listen religiously. I laugh and giggle at some of the things Chris and Will talk about. It’s so disappointing that it only comes out once a week. I find my self commenting and talking like they are in the room with me. Best podcast ever! After several months it is still going strong, dare I even say...yes I will, it’s a dadgummit must listen!* Chris and Will have done it again! I never have been a podcast person, until now. Chris has done some amazing things with Made South, so I had to listen in. #southernsupport
I’m hooked! Every week the episode goes by way to quick. I’ve binge re-listened to every episode two weeks in a row. I feel like I catch something new each time.
They have a way of presenting that makes you feel like you’re right there. It’s like sitting at the table with the cool kids. They are so approachable, and it keeps you hooked like a fish on the line.
If you haven’t listened yet, you are missing out. Wonderful southern hospitality, filled with great stories and knowledge pretty much sums it up. Can’t wait for Thursday!
A Must Listen!
Great conversation, topics, and quality. If you love all the amazing things the South has to offer (food, drinks, music, people, etc...) or you're just Southern Curious, Potluck is the podcast for you!
Not quite sure how I came across it, think it was Instagram and maybe Sean of the South but awesome. Easy to listen to and it feels like I’m hanging out with some buddies just talking about what comes to mind. I listened to the book suggestions and started reading The World’s Largest Man while watching my Red Sox. I was more into the book then I was the game at times. Keep it up guys. As a resident of Birmingham and an Auburn fan, this podcast hits close to home in so many ways. Looking forward to listening to more, in order of course.
