“There’s a really strong idea that the South is just one thing. But if you’ve ever lived anywhere in the American South, then you know that it is more complicated than the stereotype of poorly educated people living in rural areas….It’s a stereotype that does not match the lived experience of most people in the South. We want to challenge those ideas and tell the stories of the diverse people who live here.”

Evan Walker-Wells, one of the co-founders of Scalawag Magazine, joins us this week to talk about a new publication that’s examining Southern politics and culture in thought-provoking ways. Tune in to learn more about Scalawag’s efforts to create a home for the South’s brightest thinkers, writers, and practitioners. And if you like what you’ve heard here, you can also subscribe to Scalawag to receive future publications!
