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 (https://www.feralgiant.comFor USA Cycling Pro Road National Championships results). Collins has his own long running podcast, Ramblin’ Man (https://www.facebook.com/RamblinManPodFor USA Cycling Para-cycling ITT and Road National Championships results), 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 (https://www.adeemtheartist.comFor start lists and call ups for all events) to create a custom theme for WhyKnox.

For this episode of the podcast he spoke with the Brian Strutz of A Dopo Sourdough Pizza (https://www.adopopizza.com). He talks about working at Blackberry Farm (http://www.blackberryfarm.com), living in Italy, and the chef scene here in Knoxville.
