Why would someone want to call a small town home? It only takes this podcast a minute to whisk you away on a stroll into Southern Life that few are lucky enough to make its discovery. I love joining Mayor Matt on a journey to the most quaint, charming, and tranquil small towns in Georgia. You quickly lose yourself and the to-do’s of your day as your mind leaves the hustle and bustle behind. Your tour starts downtown on Main Street greeted with warm sunshine, even warmer smiles and a simpler life in the stories shared by locals. Why live in a small town you ask... spend a little time with Small Town Podcast and you will be ready to experience the Good Life of small town living. Y’all come for a visit and you may just find a home. Thanks to Mayor Matt and all who make this a special treat.
