In the guest chair:
Rob Farinella, the President and Founder of Blue Sky Agency joined me in the studio to talk about some new initiatives at the High Museum and their efforts to attract a broader audience. He talked about some of the programs they introduced like Friday Night Remix, Toddler Thursdays and Dining at table 1280 and we talked about the importance of supporting arts & culture in our community.
