Dinner & A Book

Hillbilly Elegy

Special | 27m

Gail Martin and guest Mike Keen prepare an Appalachian meal while discussing JD Vance's “Hillbilly Elegy.” Vance states that the American hillbilly isn't suffering from a deficient culture. He's just poor. Gail and Mike discuss the impression the book had after its publication in 2016 and prepare a country meal of ham with cranberry sauce, collard greens and pumpkin soup.
