Ep. 96: The Arkansaw Picture
What do you consider once you hear the state, Arkansas? That is Clay Newcomb’s beloved homeland, and on this episode he dives deep into the long-standing nationwide picture of Arkansas. It hasn’t all the time been nice. Students say it was essentially the most picked on state in America within the twentieth century and to today stays essentially the most “hillbilly” state per the web. However is that fact, or simply the outcomes of branding and powerful stereotypes? Clay interviews Dr. Books Blevins, Dr. Jeanie Whayne, and Dr. Bob Cochran to resolve this picture. It’s fascinating, entertaining, and ultimately you might want you had been bare-footed and grinning ear-to-ear, dwelling the highlife in Arkansas. Clay visits one of many nation’s premiere American artwork museums, Crystal Bridges, in Arkansas. He visits the Walmart museum to speak to Sam Walton’s hologram, and lastly, he’ll launch a by no means earlier than heard interview with Arkansas’s first son, Invoice Clinton — for actual. All it will show that there are actually two Arkansas’s — the stereotype and the true factor. We actually doubt you’re going to need to miss this one.
