About Chris Hughes

Chris Hughes is a Louisville native who spent his years after college exploring the southeast only to discover that Louisville is the best place to call home. Chris is on a quest to rediscover the city in all of its "massive creativity and massive weirdness" - to experience all the things he never had the chance to before, to explore all of the things that sprung up after he left in 2010 and to share about it here at Yes Louisville. He is a youth pastor, writer and an aspiring amateur podcast host. Tune in to "You Gotta Watch That" on the podcasting app of your choice to hear his hot takes on old movies.
