The midpoint of 2023 is upon us (time flies!) and 4th of July fireworks are about to go BOOM in the skies across Eastern Middle Tennessee.
For our EMTAR members and others, we know this time of year might also mean fun road trips to the beach or the mountains, downtime with your toes planted firmly in white Gulf Coast sand—or even in the few sandy beaches found along the shores of local places like Percy Priest Lake—and staycations filled with pool splashing and backyard chilling and grilling.
No matter what “summer break” means to you, the season tends to be an ideal time for cracking a good book or slipping in your earbuds to listen to a favorite podcast.
On the listening front, to help spur some ideas for your pleasure and enlightenment, below are descriptions of some of the real estate–related podcasts we’ve explored and listened to recently.
