Show Notes

In this episode, I talk to Jared Davis, owner and operator of the Idan-Ha Drive-In Theatre (yes, a rural drive-in!) in Soda Springs, Idaho. Jared and I talk about the unique challenges of running a drive-in theater in general (there are only a few hundred left in the U.S.) and in a rural community in particular - especially now that he lives 1.5 hours away from Soda but is at the drive-in every weekend in the summer. We talk about other opportunities and challenges that come with providing rural entertainment and discuss the importance of community. We end, as always, with the Road Trip Music Question.
