(By Troy price) Every so often you read something in the mainstream media about podcasting and you feel proud that you are part of this wonderful medium.That is what I felt when I read about the podcasting efforts of the Appalachian Media Institute (“AMI”) at Appalshop in Whitesburg, Ky. Thank you for covering the story Lexington Herald-Leader.
Over the summer seven AMI interns produced a podcast series about how the Covid-19 Pandemic has affected the people in the rural mountains of Eastern Kentucky. Topics as varied as Festivals, Foster Care, and Racism were featured. This is a fine example of information you would not hear any place else.
I could go on for another 300 words about the quality of their work and hopefully motivate you to check it out but instead, Let me just say please. Please follow the link on their Facebook page and experience their podcasts here: https://www.facebook.com/appalachianmedia.
