Chuck Reece wanted to hear a particular kind of voice from the South – a voice that loved and appreciated this part of the world while acknowledging all its faults, past and present. He didn’t hear that voice enough.
So he created a website called The Bitter Southerner. For five years now Reece has opened it to all sorts of writers, photographers and filmmakers with their own visions of the South. And recently, he started a podcast with Georgia Public Broadcasting to do the same thing. He sat down for our podcast to talk about it.
Let's keep the conversation going. Who do you want to hear from next on the SouthBound podcast? Submit your idea in the box below. You can also send a tweet to @tommytomlinson or @wfae, and email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
