GOOD GRACIOUS SOUTHERN VARIETY SHOW

GOOD GRACIOUS is a live variety show in Atlanta and a podcast spotlighting the best Southern music, arts, ideas, and more. Started in 2014 by Boyd Baker as a nod to The Ed Sullivan show, GOOD GRACIOUS hosts/interviews musicians, comedians, civic leaders, poets, filmmakers, authors, chefs, philanthropists, and folks who make the South the best - and more interesting - place to be. Podcasts include short showettes, as well as edited versions of our 2-hour live stage show. Some call it "A Southern Home Companion" because of its all-ages appeal but it's even more Southern Fun for Everyone.
