SouthBound Extra: A Preview of John T. Edge Interview

What lessons can we learn about the South’s history through traditional Southern dishes? That’s a question that John T. Edge has set out to examine in his new book, The Potlikker Papers: A Food History of the Modern South.

Edge is a food writer and historian who heads the Southern Foodways Alliance. He’s the guest on the newest episode of WFAE’s new podcast, Southbound.

In this excerpt, host Tommy Tomlinson and Edge discuss the racist history of a dive restaurant that was a popular late night hangout when they were students at the University of Georgia.

New episodes of SouthBound will come out every other week on Wednesday. Subscribe:
