#133: Don't Call it a Canton Comeback: Appalachian Holler Politics Appodlachia

    • Politics

Today, Callie and Chuck talk to Zeb Smathers, Mayor of Canton, NC, about governing as a Democrat in a small Appalachian town in one of the "reddest" parts of the state.

Also. Callie and Chuck question JD Vance's commitment to the First Amendment, cringe at Dr. Oz's campaign tactics and talk about gun reform in Appalachia and what we believe can be done.
