The Nooga Belle Podcast

A podcast all about stories of the South, straight from the sources. Hosted by Kate Robertson, the Southern food & lifestyle blogger at athoughtandahalf.com. Based in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

This week, I'm joined by Maggie Tate, SaraJane Gates, and William Glass—three wonderful people, all of whom I became friends with via social media when we all moved to Chattanooga from other places. In this episode, we share where we came from, why we ended up in Chattanooga, why Texas (and south Florida) is basically another country, and most importantly, Southern road rage and why Die Hard is a Christmas movie.

Thanks so much for listening, y'all! Find us online here:

This week, I'm joined by Cody James Harris, a soulful Americana singer-songwriter and Chattanooga native. He's been playing live music for nearly two decades, and has seen and experienced a lot in the Chattanooga music scene. Cody talks about his background and who and what inspires him, and he plays TWO exclusive songs that you'll only hear on the podcast. We finish off with an insightful discussion about Chattanooga's music community and where it's going next.

Last week, an article from McCall's Magazine, ca. 1958, surfaced on the Internet, all about "129 Ways to Get a Husband" (read it here). My friends and I gave it a read, and naturally, we had a lot of thoughts. So we did a podcast about it (with wine, of course).

In this edition of Pinkies Up, B*tches, we discuss many of the 129 suggested ways to find and get a husband, offer our own insights, and talk about which suggestions are or are not valid today, as they were in 1958. 

If you've seen or read this article, find me on Instagram @thenoogabelle and let's talk about it—I want to know what you think!

This week, we meet another new brewery opening soon in Chattanooga: WanderLinger Brewing Company. Co-owners (and brothers) Chris & Mike Dial and assistant brewer Jarrod Szydlowski join me to pour some beers and talk about how they landed in Chattanooga, how they got into the brewing business, and how they see the future of craft beer evolving in Chattanooga. I tasted three beers they'll have on tap when they open next month, and y'all, they were delicious. 

Until the grand opening, y'all can find WanderLinger on tap around town at Basecamp Restaurant & Bar, Barley Taproom, Parkway Pourhouse, Brewhaus, FEED Co. Table & Tavern, and Chattanooga Wine & Spirits.
