What happens when you get 3 Kentucky childhood best friends together? You get a slightly NSFW episode of Weird Appalachia! Landline singing competitions, creepy old houses, teaching each other about the birds and the bees, terrorizing our teachers… when you’ve known each other as long as we have, you’ve got PLENTY of crazy stories to share! And, listen, y’all – there ain’t nothing in the world like talking with old friends to bring out your STRONG ACCENT!
My special guests Danielle (Danno) and Kayla (Tater K) are raising a little hell with me and reliving the glory days.
In the Episode:
Growing up: getting into “meanness”, as our Mammaws would probably say
It’s time for a little R & R, y’all! Redneck Reputations! Comedian Justin Darnell joins me in an all-new podcast episode where we are really going there when it comes to Appalachian stereotypes.
For better or worse, our area is riddled with ideas about who and what we are. Whether it’s the media painting us in a negative light, or delightfully fun (but still inaccurate) films and shows portraying us dumb, barefoot hillbillies, there are loads of stereotypes and misconceptions about us Appalachians.
Our humor may be a little crude at times, but it is all said with love. And if you can’t laugh at yourself, who can you laugh at?
