INTRODUCING “What About Us?” by Sandra Rice

The first episode of “What About Us?” as part of The Tennessee Holler Podcast Network is LIVE!

What About Us? is a discussion about policies that impact rural Tennesseans. We dive into a variety of topics like healthcare, small businesses, employment, education and the environment. Tennessee is 93% rural with over 1.5 million residents, but resources and attention are often directed to urban areas. The rural way of life is valuable and we want to preserve it. We hope you’ll join us, and that you’ll keep thinking about us out here in rural Tennessee.
