The Latest Buzz on HoCo MoJo

We wrapped up the 29th episode of “and then there’s that…” at The Mall yesterday with our guest Beverly Francis, the executive director of The Columbia Foundation. Beverly replaced Barbara Lawson who retired after leading the HoCo loco philanthropic foundation for nineteen years. This was the first time I’ve really had the opportunity to sit down and talk with Beverly and I found her to be both passionate and funny.

I probably overused the “buzz” pun after talking about the pending legislation to change the zoning for HoCo beekeepers but I couldn’t help myself. We also discussed the Wildecats gridiron victory, the Clarksville funeral home, Four Loko, Billboard magazines recognition of Merriweather Post Pavilion and Melvin Yates.

The last two shows we didn’t have any guests for our shorter two minute segment at the end of the podcast, a stark reminder that this third segment of the show is still very much a work in progress. This week we used the time to chat briefly about the stresses of the holiday season.

We are actually considering bringing back our “man on the street” interviews that were in our original format. Now that we are in the mall there are more people around us and more of an opportunity to randomly talk to folks. Of course we will need to get The Malls permission to do this so stay tuned.
