Ep. 42 - Appalachia

Mountains, art, trees, moonshine, rivers, animals, 'coonskin caps, music - where can you find these things altogether? There may be more than way these topics connect, but this episode's unifier is the region of Appalachia! Endless beautiful art and music has emerged from this vast American landscape, so we're excited to trek into its artistic frontier.
