What the locals know… or need to know. Current topics and classic spots – the SCD crew will break it down each episode.
Each episode we address a local topic, upcoming events, review a Hickory staple, and throw some personal opinions in there as well.
We’re big fans of Hickory, NC, and think you should be too.
Andrew Moose: A transplant from Statesville, NC, and Lenoir-Rhyne graduate, Moose is the unofficial king of Hickory (at least that what’s inscribed on his Olde Hickory Taproom mug). Podcaster by day, music man by night, rabid fan of the Grateful Dead, Widespread Panic, Phish, Liverpool FC, Carolina Panthers, and LRU Football. Moose is a proponent of all things Hickory and is triggered by online lists. Moose lives in the Viewmont area of Hickory with his wife and their two dogs.
