#16: A Holiday Playlist Special

Need a break from forced family convos? Surreptitiously slip your ear buds in and give this a listen.

It’s our Christmas+Holiday playlist special. We recorded this live at Porter Flea in Nashville. Porter Flea is a maker’s market here in Nashville featuring some of the area’s top designers. We asked people passing by our booth and fellow vendors to name their favorite holiday song. It came out way better than we could have hoped. We got some surprisingly good stories from strangers. I guess this time of year brings out the most interesting family lore and specific memories.

It was well worth the hours of awkward stares from Porter Flea attendees and is our holiday gift to you.
