Returning to Kentucky   Podcast

Tom Martin joined by Deborah Alexander and Aaron Thompson discuss returning to Kentucky after time outside of the state. They provide insight on the observation by Governor Happy Chandler that he "never met a Kentuckian who wasn't either thinking about going home or actually going home.”

Eastern Standard summer intern Rebecca Blankenship trekked to the Anderson County farm of Pulitzer Prize-nominated Kentucky poet and Transylvania University professor Maurice Manning to talk about his comings and goings, from and back to Kentucky. Click here to listen.
