Ep. 130: The Mississippi River - The Delta (Part 2)
On this episode of Bear Grease, the second in a series on the Mississippi River, host Clay Newcomb guides you through the story about the settlement of the Mississippi Delta, the people of the area, and the challenges that shaped their identity. We’ll be veering out of the river into its floodplain because, as William Faulkner said, “To understand the world you must first understand a place like Mississippi.” Once again we’ll be leaning on author Hank Burdine, New York Times Best Selling author John Barry, and a new voice to Bear Grease--a dear friend raised in the Delta--Mr. Earl Jasper. This is as unique a Bear Grease episode as we’ve ever made. We really doubt you’re going to want to miss this one!
