Recent Episodes

Carl & Jei Johnson: Soul Truckin' Good (The Remix)
I may be loosing my voice but that isn’t gonna stop me from bringing another great show to your eardrums. This episode will have a familiar voice as well as a new one. Earlier in the season I talked to Carl Johnson, co-owner of Soul Truckin’ Good in the Atlanta area. During playback, I realized the audio wasn’t exactly where I wanted it and I asked him for a do-over and he kindly obliged. And guess what y’all? It turned out for the better because I got to talk to his wife Jay and hear her side of how it all got started and what running a food truck as a married couple is like. I also want you to listen to the part where I get mad at Carl for holding out on your girl with the menu!
Chef Rae: Beyond The Fork
oday we going back to The Ville, the 615. That’s right; Nashville is back in the building courtesy of Chef Rae. Chef Rae is the owner of several projects, including Beyond The Fork Food Truck. Today I learn from Chef Rae a few (remember I said that) of the projects she is working on and the importance of being a constant student and hustler as an entrepreneur despite great obstacles. I’m sure her story is going to motivate some of you to get on your grind, but for now sit back and relax the show starts now
