The people and the stories behind what makes Murfreesboro matter.
We get to know, the people YOU need to know, in and around the Boro.

Our hosts, Marisa Cali and Missy Lay, interview local small business owners about their “why.” Running a business isn’t JUST about making money, every owner has a story. We get to know the faces behind the businesses, the reasons they do what they do and have a lot of fun. Join us each week as we meet the business owners who make Murfreesboro matter.
