On this West Virginia Morning, in a recent episode of WVPB’s Us & Them podcast, host Trey Kay revisits a conversation between a liberal college professor and his student, a conservative Republican and Iraqi War veteran.

In this excerpt of the episode called “The Elephant in the Classroom,” you’ll hear, Hua Hsu and his student David Carrell try to see both sides of our nation’s partisan divide.

Also on today's show, central Appalachia has some of the worst health measures in the country. But some communities are bucking those trends with better health outcomes. A new report looks at how some Appalachian counties are improving their health statistics and becoming bright spots. Roxy Todd has that story.
