Smart Mouth Life Podcast Episode 12-Kathleen Purvis

Smart Mouth Life

Donna and Rachel are friends who aren’t afraid to ask questions, laugh loudly, obsess freely and covet vintage items. The pair created the Smart Mouth Life Podcast to celebrate women who run their mouths and the world. Today's episode features Kathleen Purvis who, for more than 25 years, most recently at the Charlotte Observer, has been an incredible food editor, columnist and reporter. In early 2019, she left the Observer to strike out on her own, and has since been nominated for a James Beard Foundation journalism award (her third time as a finalist) and had work published in Southern Living and Garden & Gun, among other media outlets. She’s published three books so far, the most recent is “Distilling The South,” and is a walking encyclopedia of southern foodways knowledge.
