Rank #5: The Ghost In The Mine

Podcast cover
Read more

Hello folks, welcome to our new podcast! Today we get things started with a ghost story.

The Reed Gold Mine was opened during the first gold rush, in Western North Carolina, back in the first part of the 19th century. And the mine needed workers, one of whom was Eugene Mills, whose wife, Eleanor, was more enthusiastic about his working there than he was. And that led to some really bad trouble, which we’ll tell you about on today’s episode.

Rank #6: Planting By The Signs

Podcast cover
Read more

Hello podcast listeners!

Today, it’s just Gena and Steve, since Rod has lost his voice and is under the weather, but even with 1/3 of the crew missing, we carry on.

We talk about the Appalachian tradition of planting by the signs, then look ahead to this spring to give some hints on when to plant, courtesy of the Old Farmer’s Almanac; We then talk about a new venture in Pike County, Kentucky, that aims to start growing food commercially using state of the art greenhouses, and one of the well-known people who is helping to secure financing for the venture; we then talk about some Appalachian traditions concerning planting and caring for your plants, including the (supposed) practice of whoopin’ up on your trees if they don’t bear a good crop of fruit!

On this week’s episode of My Appalachia, we take a look at the state of the arts in Appalachia; both Kentucky and West Virginia are looking to defund the arts and education in those states, prompting a teacher sit in at the West Virginia state capitol in Charleston on Friday; the need for arts in the area; and a look at an Appalachian dance form, clogging, by way of an interview with Kathy Arnold of Kingsport, who has performed with her family in Nashville before the governor of Tennessee and in Dollywood. It’s a show you don’t want to miss!
