Jeff Young is the managing editor of Ohio Valley ReSource, writer, and author of the book Appalachian Fall: Dispatches from Coal Country on What's Ailing America.
The poverty of Appalachia is easy to stereotype and ridicule, but the region’s social and socioeconomic troubles are a snapshot of America’s larger problems. Jeff Young is managing editor of Ohio Valley ReSource, a regional journalism collaborative reporting on economic and social change in Kentucky, Ohio and West Virginia. He joins host Krys Boyd to discuss his investigations into the struggles of the people and businesses there, and why they don’t bode well for the future of the nation. His new book is “Appalachian Fall: Dispatches from Coal Country on What’s Ailing America.”
