Already love it

I've only heard a few so far but I already love this podcast! Host has a great voice for it and the storytelling is superb! It delivers everything you expect (and more) from the title and intro. Hope this one goes on for 100+ episodes :)

Larry Brings it Each and Every Week

I am borne and bred Omar WV. My forebears on both sides of my family have not migrated more than 50 miles in almost 200 years. Grew up about5 miles down Island Creek from Devil Anse’s homestead. I am proud of that history- it taught me to work hard and not to get above my raisin’. All of my people were Coal people. Larry, you are a great story teller, and the only reason I give 5 stars is that I can’t give 6…Lee on a-bringin’ it!

Grandpa?

I’m camping near the Shenandoah listening to this next to a camp fire. I feel like I’m listening to my grandpa tell a story. It’s not highly edited but totally authentic. Highly entertaining...
