In their first year, the East Cobb Hit Squad won 14 games. This spring league team of 8-10 year olds made a name for itself and plan on doing the same thing this spring. 

 

Kvalito owner Shahid Hussain hosts a fundraising event for the team and everybody shows up: the players, the coach, the team moms and the cheerleaders. 

 

Enjoy this fun interview!

Felecia Prezzano and her daughter Brielle Gaines continue to build their tea empire. Today, they opened their second store in downtown Woodstock building on what they learned from their Marietta Square location. By the time I arrived, they had served over 250 orders and were very busy.

 

But they both had time to reflect on their journeys. We discuss their Instagram worthy restaurant design and the circle (bubble) motif designed by Cassandra Buckalew, the same Cassandra Buckalew from Season 1 of Marietta Stories Podcast.

 

I also met a couple, Greg and Rose that drove up from Cleveland (Georgia) just to get some of that delicious Tiny Bubbles Tea!

Roy Barnes learned politics from the front porch of his father’s general store in Mableton, Georgia. Storytelling is part of his DNA and Governor Barnes tells many in this informative interview from those humble beginnings to the governors mansion and back to Marietta.

Wonder what it was like to remove the confederate battle flag from the Georgia state flag? How about his thoughts about today’s political leaders? What about his wife’s decorations and Governor’s blend pipe tobacco?

Enjoy this fun and informative episode of a true leader.

Malika Bowling came into this world with barely a fighting chance. She was put up for adoption at an orphanage in India and her survival rate was slim. Thank goodness she was adopted by two loving people who practically smuggled her out of the country to nurse her back to health in America. 
 
She grew up in East Cobb and graduated from Pope High School. Malika went on to become a food and travel writer, authoring several books, most recently Culinary Atlanta: Guide to the Best Restaurants, Marketing and Breweries. She discussed her journey to getting to where she is today (it's never a straight path) and how grateful she is to have grown up in the United States. Plus, she mentions cooking and her favorite new kitchen tool, and what she loves to cook in it. 

Malika Bowling is a freelance food and travel writer based in Atlanta and Editor at Roamilicious.com. She's the author of Culinary Atlanta: Guide to the Best Restaurants, Markets, Breweries and More! and Food Blogging 101. She has been featured on HGTV and The Huffington Post and has been a contributing writer to USA Today. Malika has also served as a judge at various culinary competitions and food festivals.
