The idea for the Back Roads Banter podcast was first thought up 13 years ago by host, Melissa Plett. Like some great ideas, the time never seemed right. But, if we've learned anything from the current pandemic situation, the time will never be right!
So, with the help of a few friends, the pilot episode of BRB was finally released on June 29th, 2020. Since then, Melissa has visited several small towns, each as impressive as the last!
We hope you enjoy the podcast, and if you fancy yourself a storyteller, sign up to be a potential guest! You never know, we might just visit your town!
