Fri, Apr 21, 2017


It’s been about 20 years since the opioid epidemic first exploded across Appalachia, and now doctors are shifting away from prescribing opioids for long-term pain. But this shift away from pills has met resistance from some doctors and patients. In this episode of Inside Appalachia, we'll hear why addiction hit Appalachia so hard. We'll also find out what the medical community is doing to fight the pain pill epidemic.

Inside Appalachia Launches The Struggle to Stay

jlilly@wvpublic.org (Jessica Lilly )
Fri, Apr 14, 2017


It’s not always easy to live in these mountains, but some of us are determined to stay. In this week’s episode of Inside Appalachia, we'll explore the deep roots to the region in a new series called The Struggle to Stay . Appalachia isn’t alone in watching its young people fight with the decision to stay or go from their homeplace—it’s a conversation happening all over the country. But people are leaving parts of Appalachia at a rapid pace. It’s also true that some cities in Appalachia are gaining population- but rural areas, especially coal-dependent communities in southern W.Va. and eastern KY are seeing young people leave in droves. In this episode, we hear from several young Appalachians working to create new opportunities in their communities. They joined us on stage at Virginia Tech at the annual Appalachian Studies Association Conference (ASA) in March 2017. In this episode you'll hear: Cassidy Wright and Cheyenne Coogle, two young people who help with Higher Ground - a

Inside an Appalachian Coal Legacy: Black Lung

jlilly@wvpublic.org (Jessica Lilly )
Fri, Mar 31, 2017


Coal mining has touched so many aspects of life in Appalachia. The coal industry has provided more than just jobs — it’s helped build towns, bridges and it’s even provided money for many Appalachians to go to college. We also have a deep cultural connection to coal and its history. Still, there’s no denying the coal industry has changed the landscape of our mountains, and infected many miners with a deadly disease known as black lung.

Does Holding on to Appalachian Traditions Matter?

jlilly@wvpublic.org (Jessica Lilly )
Fri, Mar 24, 2017


In this episode of Inside Appalachia, we take a road trip to explore stories of people who are reviving Appalachian traditions, like baking salt rising bread or making sorghum sweeteners. Some folklorists, artists and educators are wondering what the future of traditional arts in the country will look like. On Friday, the West Virginia House of Delegates approved a bill that would eliminate the state's Secretary of Education and the Arts and reorganize several of the departments the position oversees. Most of those departments oversee cultural and arts programs like the state archives, the state museum, the annual Vandalia music gathering and West Virginia Public Broadcasting. The bill still needs to be approved by the state Senate to take effect.

Is Appalachia Trump Country?

jlilly@wvpublic.org (Jessica Lilly )
Fri, Mar 17, 2017


Why is Donald Trump so popular in Appalachia? And how confident are Appalachians that Trump will change the economy and bring back thousands of coal mining jobs? Trump won 95 percent of Appalachian counties, and 69 percent of West Virginia voters chose him - the highest percentage of any state. But that doesn’t mean everyone here is happy with the results. On this week's episode of Inside Appalachia we check back in with some Appalachian supporters of President Trump. We'll also listen back to a classic episode, where we hear from Trump opponents. They’ll talk about their hopes and fears surrounding Trump. We'll hear updates on the 100 Days in Appalachia project, a collaborative media project which launched right after the inauguration of President Donald Trump. We'll hear how the project is going, now that we’re more than halfway through the first 100 days of the Trump Administration. We also check in with coal miner Jonathan Griffith and his wife Jessica, to hear their reactions of

What the History of Salt, Slaves & Coal Can Teach us about Appalachia's Future

rtodd@wvpublic.org (Roxy Todd)
Fri, Feb 24, 2017


This week on Inside Appalachia, we travel to Cedar Grove, West Virginia, home of renowned novelist Mary Lee Settle. On this episode, we explore surprising, hidden histories through the work of Settle and the voices of women from Cedar Grove. Settle, who passed away in 2005, spent three decades on a series of books called the Beulah Quintet . The five books are each set in a different moment in West Virginia's history when a revolutionary change was at stake. Today's economic uncertainty here in Appalachia has many people wondering whether we are also living in the midst of a transition. "There's just kind of a feeling in the air, right now, in central Appalachia, that we have reached a moment, or a crossroads, where we're gonna have to choose a path for our future,” said Catherine Moore, whose hour-long radio documentary called Cedar Grove is featured in this week's episode of Inside Appalachia. “When I discovered that aspect of Mary Lee Settle's work, it really resonated with me, as

Exploring The Mighty Ohio River Inside Appalachia

jlilly@wvpublic.org (Jessica Lilly )
Fri, Jan 27, 2017


It’s easy to take the water coming out of your faucet for granted, but tragedies like the Elk River Chemical spill that left thousands of residents in West Virginia's capital city without water for days have put tap water front and center. Appalachia is no stranger to water contamination, especially in places with a history of heavy industry, like the Ohio River Valley. But as a large source of drinking water, how do we know it’s safe?

Ever hear the word 'Affrilachian'? In the 1990s, a poet in Kentucky named Frank X Walker came up with the term. It refers to African Americans living in Appalachia. “To us it was about making the invisible visible, or giving voice to a previously muted or silenced voice,” Walker told the Appalachian Studies Association during its 2016 conference at Shepherd University.
