On this episode of Week in Review, Jack is joined by a special co-host, HRN’s newly crowned Associate Producer Sarah McKeen. Jack and Sarah cover school nutrition guidelines, small business succession, the meaning of battered cheese sticks, and pay an obligatory tribute to the late Prince. “The Breakdown” brings us Courtney DeLaura from Sugarlands Distilling Company to talk Tennessee moonshine and their partnership with Kulture City.
