Episode 560: "Honky Tonk Heaven: The Legend of the Broken Spoke" Co-director, Brenda Greene Mitchell

Hello friends! Well, it's today. This strange day we've all been anxious about. Wether you're excited about this president or bummed, there's still an odd level of anxiety about all of this change. A lot of people in my circle are gong to be marching against this guy in Austin tomorrow. I'm not. I really don't think that's gonna do much for anyone except make you feel like you marched and no one outside of your fellow marchers cared about your march. That's just me. I just hope we can all find a way to get along and I hope this guy isn't as bad as he's making it seem he'll be. Good luck to all of us. 

My guest for episode 560 is "Honky Tonk Heaven: The Legend of the Broken Spoke" co-director, Brenda Greene Mitchell! This brilliant documentary tells the story of the legendary Texas honky tonk, The Broken Spoke here in Austin. The story is told through charismatic and tenacious owners, James and Annetta White and includes interviews with such legends as, Willie Nelson, Jerry Jeff Walker, Jesse Dayton and more! I've had the pleasure of knowing Brenda since I was 11 or 12. She has always been passionate about music and has owned clubs, promoted shows and benefits. The movie is brilliant and touching and you can find it at I hope you enjoy my conversation with my dear, old friend, Brenda. I sure did. Let's get down!
