Harm Reduction, East Tennessee Moonshine And The Song Of The Week


On this West Virginia Morning, we bring you updates on a needle exchange bill that Gov. Justice has signed into law. Then, we visit East Tennessee and hear the story of a legendary moonshining matriarch. Finally, our song of the week is Sea Of Heartbreak by Rosanne Cash, a throwback to a 2008 episode of Mountain Stage.
