Who are we?

The Citizen Thymes is a locally owned website that seeks to promote area businesses, events, and the charm of Western North Carolina. Our special brand of parody, humor, and wit offers “News with Spice” to our readers. We hope that our fans will aid in supporting us as we continue to grow. Our readers seek entertainment, and your business could be their next destination.


The Citizen Thymes is also home to the Finding Asheville podcast with Nathan Miller, an interview format show featuring local entrepreneurs, artists, brewers, and chefs.


Why whatever I want and when I want?

Why not? The Citizen Thymes and the Finding Asheville podcast is fueled by passion, which means even if we don’t make a dime, we will still be here tomorrow doing what we love.


We also love the Asheville community and really want to help the businesses that we love grow, no matter the advertising budget. So pay whatever you want, when you want, because you are a valued member of our community and we want to help your business grow.
