Carolina Curious

88.5 WFDD presents Carolina Curious, a series where our reporters find answers to your questions. We want to know what you've always wondered about the place where you live. For example: "Why are there so many hot dog joints in Winston-Salem and so many burger places in Greensboro?" Or, "How did High Point get its name?"
