Summer Friends | sum‧mer frends |
Friends whose lives intersect over a shared season and place.

The Summer Friends podcast is a regular conversation hosted by Nate Loucks. A summer friend is a person whose life intersects with your own for a brief season. Summer friends never have a permanent presence, but they often leave a lasting impression.

Each episode will be equal parts storytelling, interview, and education.

Let's be friends, even for just this season.

The Summer Friends Podcast | Adam Wilson


When we started State Street in 2010, a few other new startups happened around the same time in LaPorte. One of them was Wilson’s Barber Shop & Shave Parlor. Adam Wilson is a friend. He’s also been my barber since he opened. It was a lot of fun talking to him about his journey from California to Indiana. He’s very much an adopted son of LaPorte. But, he also has a unique perspective that has benefitted his ability to be a successful entrepreneur in this region.

Thank you to everyone has listened, rated, and shared the podcast. Next week, Jennifer Rhine-Walker will be on the podcast. Jennifer is a detective with the LaPorte Sheriff’s Department.
