Join Deb and Karan on a trip back through nostalgia. From Deb’s secret past as an anthropology and French major, to a near exact replica of Karan’s childhood living room, believe it or not, it all has to do with this episode’s guest. (Forget the nostalgia, though. Your biggest take away should be FREE PARKING!) Located on the campus of Indiana University (where there really is free parking), the Mathers Museum of World Cultures hosts a variety of free family friendly events and exhibits throughout the year (free parking any time of the day and year). We talk with Assistant Director Judy Kirk about what to expect when you visit. Parking and admission is always free (really!) and with a collection of over 30,000 pieces, plus new exhibits every semester, there’s no reason not to check out this local gem (did I mention the free parking)!
In our Facebook Follow segment we encourage listeners to become a fan of La Vie en Rose, a charming and authentic French cafe located downtown. It’s a special treat that should become more of the every day. Get on the bandwagon and have some fun! And in our REAL-List segment, Deb talks about what to expect from your realtor when your home is listed for sale and how the seller plays a vital role in a successful sale.
