This week Marketplace is bringing you coverage from the floor of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

But in keeping with our tradition these past two weeks, we decided checking in with different Philadelphia might be more illuminating: Philadelphia, Tennessee. Population? Somewhere around 900.

Heidi Adams owns a farm there and works as a commercial real estate broker in Knoxville, too.

Adams spoke with Marketplace’s Kai Ryssdal about life — and politics — in rural Tennessee.

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.

Our mission at Marketplace is to raise the economic intelligence of the country. It’s a tough task, but it’s never been more important.

In the past year, we’ve seen record unemployment, stimulus bills, and reddit users influencing the stock market. Marketplace helps you understand it all, will fact-based, approachable, and unbiased reporting.
