On this week's episode of the podcast Us & Them, producer Trey Key looks at the evolution of textbooks in the U.S. and the controversies in both Kanawha County and Texas that have shaped the textbooks students read in school.

Inside Appalachia focuses on the out-migration of young people from West Virginia and Appalachia in general, a move that often leaves Appalachian natives homesick for their roots.
