East Nashville Now!

Episode #5: Badger - A Living Art Project!

August 15, 2015

On today’s show I am privileged to be speaking with a very special guest – Nashville legend, Badger. Badger is a traveling work of art, a poet, a writer, a comedian in his own right and a political activist for human rights and freedoms. Badger is a man who has lived a life unafraid to speak out and to bring to our attention some uncomfortable truths about our country and her people.

And remember neighbors every Wednesday now through October is the East Nashville Farmer’s Market in Shelby Park. Come meet your neighbors and more than 2 dozen vendors who gather in the Grove each Wednesday to bring you the very best that Nashville and surrounding areas has to offer. Time: 3:30pm – 7pm.

Y’all be good to each other out there and remember to do something nice for one of your neighbors. It will make you feel good inside!

Help Badger get his truck by going here:
