E36 Come on Down to the Piggly Wiggly
Show Notes

In E36 we lighten things up a bit, with the brief history of the grocery store.  Who knew they were a southern invention?

We've got a limited run of Lore of the South screen printed Ts.  Sizes Sm-2x, priced at $25 and that should include shipping unless you're one of our three overseas listeners, then there might be a slight upcharge.  Photos of the T's are posted on our FB and Instagram accounts.  If interested send me an email at loreofthesouth@gmail.com
