This is a new day for Visit Knoxville: we are launching a podcast! WhyKnox is a podcast highlighting folks that make Knoxville a wonderful place to live. From luminaries to behind the scenes people that make this town great. Tune in to hear their ties to Knoxville, and what they like most about the city.

WhyKnox is hosted by Jody Collins of Feral Giant. Collins has his own long running podcast, Ramblin’ Man, where he interviews people knowledgeable in a topic, but they allow the conversation to meander wherever it may go. Collins tapped local musician Adeem The Artist to create a custom theme for WhyKnox.

Up first on the podcast is Adam Ingle of Alliance Brewing Company. They talk about what brought Adam to Knoxville, his initial foray into crafting beer, and his time as a rugby player at the University of Tennessee.

You can listen to the podcast with Adam below or on Libsyn. You can also go to your podcast application of choice and search for WhyKnox.  Don’t forget to subscribe!
