Us & Them: Hillers & Creekers

Trey Kay & Randy
Joni Deutsch
/
On this episode of Us & Them podcast, Trey Kay looks at a cultural divide from his childhood... when you were either a hiller or a creeker.

Americans tend to sort themselves into tribes that share similar culture, ideas and values. Trey recalls kids at his West Virginia high school sorting themselves into different camps and how one dressed was often a defining factor, right down to the shoes.

On this week's episode of the "Us & Them" podcast: the legacy of class division in Kanawha County, West Virginia, between the Hillers and Creekers
