    (Ep 32) Connecting Appalachia & Palestine: Interview w/ Tiara - Part 1

    (Ep 32) Connecting Appalachia & Palestine: Interview w/ Tiara - Part 1

    Starting off April on the right foot: no fools here, just Chelsea and Tiara sitting down for what was supposed to be a primer on the situation in Palestine, but turned into a conversation that had to go on for two whole days and six hours of content.

    This is the first of the episodes that came from that content, and in this episode, we get to know Tiara better as a fresh face to cohost the podcast with us. She tells us about the grief that compelled her to stand in at a direct action in solidarity with Palestinians in October, and how that vulnerability in sharing her grief has transformed the lives and hearts of her own family members. We do our best to pull on the threads that are woven between Appalachia and occupied Palestine, and touch on the importance of paying attention, holding space, and reciprocity. We start to dig into the geopolitical history of the land and its people that led to the current genocide, but we cover that much more in depth in next week's episode.

    *TRIGGER WARNING - this episode contains dialogue related to genocide, settler colonialism, white supremacy, anti-semitism, and violence against human beings (including children)*

    (Ep 31) It's All One Big Conspiracy!

    (Ep 31) It's All One Big Conspiracy!

    SEASON TWO is back, this time with two new cohosts to make the show extra fun!

    In this episode, we introduce our new cohosts that are joining Chelsea on the show: Sierra (from episode 8) and Tiara, two additional loudmouthed and badass Appalachian women to raise hell and make good trouble with us. We declare ourselves a fullblown conspiracy podcast as we touch on everything from Amazon to Kate Middleton to AIPAC to Epstein to the Irish Prime Minister and on and on. As we tend to do in the show, we bring it all full circle around the idea that our liberation is inherently interconnected and none of us are free until al of us are free.

    (Ep 30) We're Here, We're Queer, & We Won't Give Into Fear: Interview w/ Max & Hil (WNC)

    Get ready for SEASON TWO of the Podcast! We've been recalibrating, recentering, and we're back with a helluva episode to kick off the latest round of rabblerowsing redneck comraderie.

    In this episode, I sit down with friends & neighbors Max and Hil to talk about the community organizing that was catalyzed in Haywood County, NC following a hate-filled attack campaign against our trans neighbors. We describe in detail how effectively and quickly community can come together to show solidarity and create the version of reality that we want to live in. Community Organizing Is For Everyone. May you take in the content of today's episode and start your own journey of holy conspiracy with the folks in your own hollers.

    *TRIGGER WARNING - this episode contains dialogue related to transphobia, hate and violence, and trauma*

    (Ep 29) A Story Made to be Told: Interview w/ Whitni & Mark of Redneck Army (TN)

    (Ep 29) A Story Made to be Told: Interview w/ Whitni & Mark of Redneck Army (TN)

    After a long, unexpected hiatus, the SHOW IS BACK! And on the anniversary of our launch one year ago, no less! In today's anniversary episode, I sit down with Whitni Resides & Mark Brown, the screenwriters of Redneck Army -- a proposal to bring the story of the Battle on Blair Mountain to live on the silver screen. With a focus on all the people involved (including the women and children who made the largest worker rebellion in US history possible), they counter mainstream media's simplification and stereotypical portrayl of Appalachian people and this piece of our history.

    Don't forget to show them some love on their socials @redneckarmy.

    (Ep 28) It's All Shadow Work: Interview with Desiree B. Stephens (GA)

    (Ep 28) It's All Shadow Work: Interview with Desiree B. Stephens (GA)

    Happy Black History Month, friends! In today's episode, we kick of this month by sitting down with one of my personal heroes: the brilliant Desiree B. Stephens. Desiree is an antiracist educator, counselor, and coach who creates community & fosters the healing work that is required for somatic decolonization -- she makes shi(f)t happen! In our conversation, Desiree digs into the idea behind her work, "who were you before you were white?" We explore the importance of taking back our power as the collective & ridding ourselves of the shame that comes from being at the bottom of a systemic hierarchy that we have inherited but have not consented to.

    (Ep 27) Illegal Liquor, Fast Cars, Taxes, & War: More on the Race & Labor Rabbit Hole

    (Ep 27) Illegal Liquor, Fast Cars, Taxes, & War: More on the Race & Labor Rabbit Hole

    In this week's belated episode, we go for more adventures down the rabbit hole of race & labor -- but this time, we brought liquor and fast cars! We travel back to the 1600s together and follow the journey of homemade liquor throughout time and space, and just about every war since colonization began. We touch on the Whiskey Rebellion, the role of Roy Hall in the development of NASCAR, the political campaigns that led to the prohibition era, and just about everything else that we can squeeze into an hour.

Uniting the US

This Appalachian woman is single handedly uniting the US with topics we all need to be talking about. Thank you.

Make Good Trouble

Talking about things that make people uncomfortable. Subjects that must be talked about. The host is one of the best people I know. The one star reviews are some of the people in our community that have no social graces. In the words of David Joy….keep swinging the axe! “Make good trouble.” John Lewis
