#MuscleShoals is a small town located in #NorthAlabama and has been made famous by the likes of Lynyrd Skynrd, Aretha Franklin, the Rolling Stones, George Michael, Willie Nelson, and many, many more musicians. You can visit these historic recording studios still today. My favorite place to visit in the #shoals is the Marriott Spa and Hotel.

Here's my travel #blog and #podcast for visiting Cheekwood Gardens in Belle Meade.

  • If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.

  • Dr. Death

    We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.

    This is what the news should sound like. The biggest stories of our time, told by the best journalists in the world. Hosted by Michael Barbaro. Twenty minutes a day, five days a week, ready by 6 a.m.
