The Hatfield-McCoy feud wasn't the only feud in eastern Kentucky in the late 1800s, not by a long shot. The Martin-Tolliver feud, the French-Eversole feud, and the Baker-Howard feud were three of many that plagued the region for decades. The gunfights, assassinations, and ambushes lasted for nearly a century. Thanks to our sponsor, Simplisafe.

Greetings from hills and hollers of Eastern Kentucky. In this episode, we had the opportunity to sit down with two of Kentucky's Finest, Trooper Michael Burton and Trooper Matt Gayheart, Public Affairs Office for Post 13 in Hazard, Ky. and pick their brain on many things, ranging from their upcoming minitruck-friendly show Cruising with Cruisers on October 16th in Whitesburg, Ky. to some of their road stories! Plus, hear all about what to expect when minitruckers make their return to Whitesburg! However, we wouldn't be YOUR #voiceofthelowlife if we didn't their real opinions on minitruckers, Walmart, flea markets - and yes, we even ask them how many 4th graders they could take out if they had to! (Their answers may surprise you!). Plus, they join us in the Generic Mountain Dew Challenge! Get to know the guys behind the uniform in this episode - truly one of the best we've ever done. (P.S. This episode content is edited. Heavily. We had to cut out some REALLY good (the NON PG ones!) stories for various reasons - so make sure for those of y'all that hit up the CwC show, that you go ask these troopers about the stories that were cut!)
Brian Barone is in his third season as the SIUE's men's basketball coach after taking over the position in March 2019. Barone had been an assistant coach for the Cougars the previous two seasons. The highlight of Barone's first season came with a historic 79-69 win on the road at Belmont. It was the program's first-ever win over Belmont and came among five Ohio Valley Conference victories. The Cougars also won road OVC games at Eastern Illinois and UT Martin during the season. SIUE also triumphed over Southeast Missouri and Eastern Kentucky at home. Even before coming to SIUE, Barone boasted previous NCAA Division I experience as an assistant as well as stints as an assistant and head coach in the junior college ranks. Barone's most recent Division I experience came at Green Bay under current Bradley head coach Brian Wardle. In five years on the Green Bay staff, Barone helped guide the Phoenix to a 95-65 overall record. In 2014-15, Green Bay posted a 24-7 record and claimed the Horizon League's regular season championship. While at Green Bay, Barone was instrumental in the recruitment and development of two-time Horizon League Player of the Year Keifer Sykes and second round 2015 NBA Draft Pick Alec Brown. More than 10 Green Bay players from Barone's tenure went on to play professionally. Prior to his time in Green Bay, Barone was on staff at Indiana University as the Hoosiers' director of basketball operations/video coordinator where he worked under his college head coach Tom Crean. He began at IU in 2008 after serving the 2007-08 campaign as the coordinator of basketball operations and video coordinator at Marquette. Barone's first Division I coaching experience came at Illinois State. He spent four seasons (from 2003-04 through 2006-07) as an assistant coach for the Redbirds where he helped resurrect a program that had just eight wins the year prior to his arrival. As a player, Barone played his first two seasons at Texas A&M, playing for his father Tony Barone, Sr. He earned honorable mention all-Big XII accolades as a sophomore following the 1997-98 season when he finished among the league's top five in assists and steals. He also received GTE Big XII Academic All-Conference accolades as well. He transferred to Marquette. Barone made his debut in 1999-00 after sitting out one season as a transfer. He served as team captain during his tenure and was also named to the Conference USA All-Academic Team. Barone earned his bachelor's degree in communications from Marquette in 2000 and completed his master's in communications at MU in 2002. Barone and his wife, Mimi, have a son, Carson, and three daughters, Ava, Gianna and Cecilia. What you'll learn in this episode: What ‘Find a Way' means to Brian and the SIUE Basketball program Why it was so important to add ‘Family' to the end of ‘Find a Way' What locking into the beliefs that everything is better together and to never do it alone helped SIUE Basketball grow through all the adversity they faced How Brian leans into each players' story to put them into the best position to be successful on and off the court What it was like to play 19 games in 43 days, have a 33 day break in mid-season without a game and to only have five team practices after December 21st during the 2020-21 season What it is so important to know your role, embrace your role, and be a star in your role How his players protect the locker room Additional resources: Brian Barone's- LinkedIn Brian Barone's- Twitter Brian Barone's- Website Brian Barone's- Facebook
"The mess and the beauty are really tied together." - Joshua van Cleef Season 4, Episode 5 of Messy Jesus Business podcast, hosted by Sister Julia Walsh. LISTEN HERE: IN THIS EPISODE: In this episode of Messy Jesus Business, Sister Julia Walsh talks with Ellen Salmi van Cleef and Joshua van Cleef about how they became missionaries serving in Eastern Kentucky, and what being a missionary today is all about. "I feel really blessed that the way that I learned what being a missionary was, was really rooted in presence," Ellen explains, "in being present to people and in being present to God and God's voice in your life." They discuss how Catholic imagination challenges the ability for lay people to lead, serve and animate the Gospel in the ways that they are called. They reflect upon how serving in a rural environment invites people to contemplation, and how observing beauty directs us toward God. And, they explore the mess as a natural part of Gospel living, and how God is with us in the mess of life and service. "The mess and the beauty are really tied together," said Joshua. "And that's my experience of being a missionary, especially here, and in my own life too. Because God's in here with me in the mess, then the beauty is right there too, and they're bound in some way." ABOUT THE GUESTS: Ellen Salmi van Cleef and Joshua van Cleef serve as missionaries in Eastern Kentucky. In 2016, they were installed together by the Bishop John Stowe OFM, to lead a small Appalachian parish in the absence of an ordained pastor. Ellen recently started serving as Associate Director of Evangelization for the Marist Brothers, and Joshua leads the parish as Parish Life Director. He also serves the diocese as the Director of the Peace and Justice Office. This May, Ellen and Joshua became parents to their first child, Joy. They live in a log cabin on 50 acres in the mountains, and share the property with lots of chickens, cats, and other creatures. Contemplative moment is a reading from Luke 4:16-21.

Shea Taylor's instinct to protect others and, as he puts it, to “beat up bad guys” comes in part from having been bullied himself. Growing up in Eastern Kentucky, he had a lot of health problems; as a high school freshman, he was 5 feet tall and weighed just 88 pounds. “My dad was a high school janitor,” Shea says. “We weren't financially rich by any stretch of the imagination. I grew up on a dairy farm in a two bedroom house with five brothers.” He remembers being picked on a lot, and working hard: “You had to grind for everything.” But when, toward the end of high school, he shot up to over 6 feet, put on weight and started excelling in baseball, that was when “everything clicked.” Which is why, after breaking his leg playing baseball and later damaging — then losing — that same leg in a motorcycle accident, Shea had to contend with what limited mobility meant for his identity and for his self-confidence. Spoiler alert: He'd go onto become one of the first amputees to fight in the MMA. On this episode of True North Man, Paul and Shea talk about perseverance and letting your faith help shape your resilience. What You'll Learn How, after 15 days in the ICU, 12 surgeries and a lot of prayer, Shea ultimately made the decision to lose his leg What it's like to be one of the first and only fighters with a prosthetic in the MMA How Shea is giving back to where he came from as an entrepreneur today And much more! Favorite Quote: “I would much rather have tried something and failed it than to have thought about doing something and it eat at me and not try it for five plus years, then go back on it, miss my opportunity and have regret. Because regret will absolutely eat your soul… it's always ‘if it had been different' or ‘if it had been this.' Screw that.” — Shea Taylor Connect With Shea: Instagram Facebook How To Get Involved: Discover all that Paul Beam has to offer at www.true-north-ministries.com Enjoyed the episode?

Tonight's guest, Paul Chafin, spent as much time, as possible, in the woods around his home, in Eastern Kentucky, where he grew up, until he had his 1st Dogman encounter, when he was 15. After he had that encounter, Paul wasn't as interested, as he used to be, in spending time in the woods. Fast forward to today and there's quite a difference in how he looks at things. Now, he's an experienced Dogman researcher, who actually tries to seek out encounters with Dogmen. He and his research partner, Kirk Stokes, are very good at doing that. On tonight's show, Pauls going to talk about the Dogman encounters he's had, his research into them, and a Dogman documentary he and Kirk are in the process of producing. We hope you'll tune in and listen to him talk about all of those things.

In the beautiful hills of Eastern Kentucky, once lived a woman who wanted nothing more than to escape her circumstances and her geography in order to live a better life. When a young, promising FBI special agent came to town, Susan Smith thought she had met the man who would save her from the life she loathed. But first, the agent needed her help. To catch a bank robber, of all things. And the agent would pay her for information and make promises that she never suspected he wouldn’t keep. Right up to the very end. And that end would come at the hands of the very savior she’d put all of her hope into. This is the story of Special Agent Mark Putnam and the murder of Susan Smith.Join our Facebook Group: Kentucky Fried Cousins (Cause we're all family here!)For additional show notes, go to: kentuckyfriedhomicide.com

Big White Ghetto- Dead Broke, Stone-Cold Stupid, and High on Rage in the Dank Woolly Wilds of the "Real America" Kevin D. Williamson is author of Big White Ghetto: Dead Broke, Stone-Cold Stupid, and High on Rage in the Dank Woolly Wilds of the "Real America". https://shows.acast.com/cato-daily-podcast/episodes/big-white-ghetto-dead-broke-stone-cold-stupid-high-rage-dank About the book- "You can't truly understand the country you're living in without reading Williamson." —Rich Lowry, National Review "His observations on American culture, history, and politics capture the moment we're in—and where we are going." —Dana Perino, Fox News An Appalachian economy that uses cases of Pepsi as money. Life in a homeless camp in Austin. A young woman whose résumé reads, “Topless Chick, Uncredited.” Remorselessly unsentimental, Kevin D. Williamson is a chronicler of American underclass dysfunction unlike any other. From the hollows of Eastern Kentucky to the porn business in Las Vegas, from the casinos of Atlantic City to the heroin rehabs of New Orleans, he depicts an often brutal reality that does not fit nicely into any political narrative or comfort any partisan. Coming from the world he writes about, Williamson understands it in a way that most commentators on American politics and culture simply can’t. In these sometimes savage and often hilarious essays, he takes readers on a wild tour of the wreckage of the American republic—the “white minstrel show” of right-wing grievance politics, progressive politicians addicted to gambling revenue, the culture of passive victimhood, and the reality of permanent poverty. Unsparing yet never unsympathetic, Big White Ghetto provides essential insight into an enormous but forgotten segment of American society.

The pandemic shook things up, a lot. It exposed the country’s deepest inequalities, and arguably, made them worse. Now, all eyes are on President Biden to see how he’ll fix it, and Republicans are responding exactly as expected: by crying about the debt. Here’s the thing, though, says Paul Krugman, an American economist and op-ed columnist at The New York Times, there’s really no reason to. It’s a tale as old as time. Both parties spend, but when it’s time for Dems to make the economic plans, and Biden took office, Republicans “suddenly rediscovered that they were worried about debt” he tells co-host Molly Jong-Fast on this bonus episode of The New Abnormal. But it actually doesn’t matter, he claims. “The important thing to realize is that governments are not like you and me, governments don't have to pay back their debt,” he explains. “All they have to do is make sure that their obligations don't grow beyond any reasonable estimate of what they can us over time. That means they never actually have to pay off debt. It's a threat that exists only in the imagination of people who want to have some reason to squeeze government spending.” Instead, says Krugman, lawmakers should prioritize giving money to poor families with children, which is cheap and will get them out of poverty. “You can do an enormous amount for children, fairly affordably,” he says, but for the love of Pete, stop calling it tax breaks. “It's actually just giving people money,” he says, which isn’t a bad thing at all. Will the Trump voters go for this? It’s unclear, but Krugman says Biden’s policies actually help them the most. (“There's basically no place in America that is more dependent upon federal aid. That is more lifted out of absolute misery by massive support from the taxpayers than Eastern Kentucky. And it's very, very hard to find someone who didn't vote for Trump and those in those counties.”) Plus! The past alignments of the Democratic and Republican parties are completely changed, he says. (“People used to describe [the GOP] as being a center, right party, but it's not, it's now an extreme authoritarian, anti-liberal, anti-science, anti-almost-everything party that more or less [resembles] fascist parties of Europe.”) And! A prediction of what economic recovery look like post-pandemic. It’s good news for the working class. If you haven't heard, every single week The New Abnormal does a special bonus episode for Beast Inside, the Daily Beast’s membership program. where Sometimes we interview Senators like Cory Booker or the folks who explain our world in media like Jim Acosta or Soledad O’Brien.
