In the meantime, we’ll be revisiting some of our favorite shows from our first four years while still keeping you up-to-date on things to do in and around Atlanta. Here, I’m joined by Yvonne Zusel from the AJC’s food and dining team and our entertainment reporter Rodney Ho to talk about some of the week’s hot topics. Stay tuned in the coming weeks for more of the new podcast format, which will include this and much more.

Where does your food come from? Sure, ultimately, you might be getting it from a grocery store or maybe even a farmer’s market, but before it gets there, someone had to cultivate it, grow it, get it ready for that market. Last year, the AJC took a look at some of the Georgia folks providing our food with the Georgia on My Plate series. On this week’s podcast, we’ll revisit a conversation food, dining and Living editor Ligaya Figueras had with Ilana Richards of Levity Farms in Madison. Find it at ajc.com/podcasts and at the Apple Podcast store.

Then you have to meet lovable hunk Mushu He’s one mushy teddy bear of a dog, and he is more than happy to make new friends with people and other pups. He may not know his own size, given his affinity for leaning the full weight of his body against his favorite humans, but that’s just his way of spreading the love. Three-year-old Mushu knows his basic cues, and can’t wait to discover all that life has to offer in a loving home of his own.
