Episode 204 – TEnderly Coffee (without the T)

This week we had the pleasure of talking with Tony from Enderly Coffee about his journey to Charlotte, starting a thriving coffee empire, and maybe we touch on what the future could look like for his business.

We also revisit the Mecklenburg Investment Company story as John’s article about it is in the June issue of Charlotte Magazine, and we end with some words of support from the one and only SG.

Many people are calling this week’s episode the FOOTBAW MEGAPOD as features both Jourdan Rodrigue (5:15) of The Athletic and Charlotte 49ers Head Football Coach Will Healy (30:08). We talk NFL draft and doing their jobs in the Age of Quar with both, and we enjoy some football themed history with a discussion of the movie Leatherheads. We end as we always do with some Supportive Words from Supportive Guy.

Episode 200 – We Got Quarantined

Today we celebrated a milestone: our 200th episode!

We shared our favorite memories over the past ~120 hours of #content, discussed some of our Hopes and Dreams for the future of the show, and we did it all under the shroud of a global pandemic that threatens our way of life!

We closed with some kind (?) words of congratulations on 200 episodes from friends of the show.

Thanks to everyone who has listened over the years. We love you and we love Charlotte.
