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.

For the second episode of the podcast, he spoke with the President of Visit Knoxville, Kim Bumpas. They talk about what brought Kim to Knoxville, her history in the hospitality industry, and her thoughts on the future of Knoxville.
