Description

We're a podcast picking the best local homegrown stories around Georgia with a focus on economic, cultural and historical moments. Peaches carry deep symbolism. We seek out stories with this peach spirit, founders who remain true to Southern hospitality roots. From conversations at local farmers markets to discussions at tech events, our stories blossomed from a curiosity to learn more about people behind the brands. Stories are told by daughter and dad duo, Julia and Jeff. Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/peach-and-prosperity/support
