We post a new episode of Appalachian History weekly podcast every Sunday. Check us out on the Stitcher network, available on mobile phones, in-car dashboards and tablets worldwide. Just click below to start listening:
We open today’s show with a series of live interviews from the floor of the Appalachian Studies Association 37th annual conference in Huntington, WV.
We’ll pause in between things to catch up on a calendar of events in the region this week, with special attention paid to events that emphasize heritage and local color.
And thanks to the good folks at the Internet Archive, we’ll be able to enjoy some authentic Appalachian music from JH Howell in a 1938 recording of Girl That Worries My Mind.
So call your old Plott hound up on the porch, fire up your corncob pipe, and settle in for a dose of Appalachian history.
