Fresh perspective we all need

What a refreshing and uplifting podcast! Insights at the intersection of country music and female leadership, diversity and civility, Lebanon and Tennessee. And soulfully presented. Thank you.

Unsure.

Lots of feminist undertones and biased opinions. I feel as though words are put in her mouth based on the commentators opinions of her experiences.

My surprising new favorite podcast

I’ve always been a Jad fan since discovering Radiolab a few years ago, and so I decided to try this. I’m not even really a country music fan, yet found myself falling in love with Dolly Parton from the first episode. I didn’t realize just how pervasive her influence has been on America, and on parts of my own life! The podcast is incredibly well done and just so interesting. I would suggest it to anyone!
