32 - Down in the Ham!

Everybody knows that the best thing to do when its rainy and wet outside is to sit down and relax with your favorite podcast!  Lucky you; we've got a new episode up and ready for you! 

In this episode Blake and I discuss the Birmingham City Council's vote on the BJCC Renovation and Stadium funding proposal, Birmingham Legion's announcement of their official home field, and Mayor Woodfin's hiring of Josh Carpenter to the role of Economic Development Director.

In the second half of the show we visit Forge and sit down for an interview with Ashley Chesnut, author of Down in the Ham: A Child's Guide to Downtown Birmingham and Color the Ham!  Her blog posts as well as more information on her book can be found at
