I’m Sandy Adams, the host of the podcast A Southern Girl’s View.
Growing up in the south, the best part of the summer was the late nights sitting outside on the front porch listening to my mom and my aunts laugh and tell stories about their childhood. Those were some of the best evenings when life was simple and the only thing to focus on was catching fireflies at dusk.
Those conversations and that summer feeling was pretty much my inspiration for this podcast.
I’m thrilled to announce Season 3 of A Southern Girl’s View podcast. I set the bar high last season with a wide variety of guests and subjects ranging from military experts in nuclear energy to conversations with my cousin sam about California living and baseball.
This new season will be even more exciting with a wide range of interesting people from all parts of the country and around the world. From Memphis State Handball to the Republic of Liberia, from the small towns of West Tennessee to the outposts of the British Government.
So friends, sit A SPELL, fix yourself a glass of ICED TEA AND LISTEN IN ON SOME THOUGHTFUL, AND AT TIMES FUNNY, CONVERSATIONS.
Season 3 of kicks off with my first guest and former mentor Dr. George Kieh, politician, author, political scientist and former presidential candidate for the The Republic of Liberia.
So mark your calendars, Season 3 premiers Wed Oct 7, 2020
You can listen and subscribe at asoutherngirlsview.com/podcast and on apple podcasts, spotify or wherever you listen to podcasts.
