SouthBound: Historian Tom Hanchett On The Past, Present (And Future?) Of The South

Mar 6, 2019

Tom Hanchett is a historian. Charlotte is his particular area of expertise, but he has spent years studying how the modern South came to be. So how did our history make the South what it is today? And what are some of the changes likely to come our way in the future?

Hanchett has lots of other titles behind historian. He’s an author, a fiddle player and a food writer. Most of all, he’s an explorer who wanders into places where he’s the outsider and reports back on what he’s seen, heard and tasted. We touch on all those things in our conversation.

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 ttomlinson@wfae.org.
