Hot Rods

Mason Adams/ WVPB

One could spend a lifetime learning about Appalachia, and just scratch the surface. 

On this week’s episode of Inside Appalachia, we’re listening back to a show we originally aired earlier this year, before the pandemic changed so much of our lives. While some of the stories take place before social distancing, before we had to limit our contact with big crowds, the heart of this episode remains true to our current situation.

We’ll hear stories spanning from fiddle music, to Appalachian style food. We’ll also hear how moonshine getaway cars turned into an Appalachian subculture of families who rebuild and race hot rods.
