Hosts Kami Ahrens and TJ Smith introduce you to Aunt Arie Carpenter, one of Foxfire's most visited contacts. This episode features clips from the first recorded interview at Arie's house in North Carolina. During the three-hour-long interview, Aunt Arie covered topics ranging from souse meat, hard times, and land development.

Hosts Kami Ahrens and TJ Smith revisit the 1980 "It Still Lives" album. This week we take a look at some of the musical recordings from the album. We discuss the origins of "mountain" instruments - banjos, fiddles, and mountain dulcimers - and how they were used in mountain communities. 

Hosts Kami Ahrens and TJ Smith take you on a journey through Southern Appalachia heritage using stories, songs, and more from the Foxfire archives. This pilot episode explores storytelling and the role of folklore in the mountains. Featuring storyteller and musician Stanley Hicks, we talk animals and legends and whether or not the 'stinger snake' really exists!
