Library Director Keenon McCloy joined Eric Barnes this week on The Sidebar to discuss the tens of thousands of calls the Memphis Public Libraries receives each year that have nothing to do with books. They take calls on everything from software training to how to help someone with food insecurity, homelessness, and so much more. Eric and Keenon also talked about the renovation to Cossitt Library, as well as the renovations of the Frayser and Raleigh branches of the library. 

Former Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam joined Bill Dries on The Daily Memphian Politics Podcast to talk about the state’s path to Republican dominance and Haslam’s call on Christian conservatives to pull away from the nation’s partisan political divide.

Kurt Mullican and Jackie Mau recently opened Greys Fine Cheese and Entertaining, a cheese shop in East Memphis. Mullican joined Jennifer Biggs on Sound Bites for a fun 30 minutes about how the couple started the business, they talked about some of the cheeses they’re selling, and their plans to beef up the lunch menu.

The budget season is among the topics discussed on “Behind The Headlines.” Listen to Toby Sells of The Memphis Flyer and Omer Yusuf of The Daily Memphian, discussing the budget season as well as the removal of what’s left of the memorial in Health Sciences Park of Nathan Bedford Forrest.
