Ep. 37: "Tell Nate to..." Summer Recs for Music, Movies, and Memoirs with Dave Jones, Katy Evans, and Kenny Coble


This week’s guests are local experts on books, films, and music. We hear from Katy Evans who works for The Grand Cinema (the local arthouse theater.) We get music recs from hip hop head, local podcaster, realtor, and ex-educator Dave Jones. And we learn what we should be reading from our only four-time-show-guest Kenny "I have a lot of opinions" Coble of King’s Books.

We started the show with a reminder about the fall #NerdFarmReads Book Club: We Gon' Be All Right by Jeff Chang: buy it, read it, tweet about it using #nerdfarmreads
