Racism in Appalachia

May 6th, 2017

Today, we take a look at race and racism by way of the march in Pikeville, Kentucky, last Saturday by neo-nazis, neo-Confederates and white power groups, along with the countermarch by Antifas, all outside players on a stage they thought they knew, but didn't: Appalachia.

Hello, Folks

March 22nd, 2017

Welcome to a new show that explores the problems facing Appalachia in the Trump Era, along with possible solutions. 

Hosted by Rod Mullins, Steve Gilly and Gena Gilly, all lifelong residents of the area.  

On each episode, we'll address an area of concern and suggest what we, the folks who live here, can do to make things better, with or without outside help.  After all, we've been kicking around these parts for over 200 years and have managed okay so far through a civil war, depression, and the rise and fall of the coal industry, so we think we'll do just fine now.  

Be sure to catch the show live on Radio Appalachia, which is on the TuneIn app and also in the Shoutcast directory, and afterwards as a podcast on Podbean.  Coming soon to iTunes, Stitcher and Google Play.

Be listening for us!
