Kayaks, Art And Dogs, Oh My! This West Virginia Week

Black writing on a yellow background

On this West Virginia Week, with a possible government shutdown looming, we learned how it might affect West Virginians. 

We also learned about plants that can thrive in former mine lands, we kayaked along the Gauley River, we learned about an art exhibit inspired by recent cuts at West Virginia University, and we saw dogs fly from Charleston to Michigan to reach their forever homes.

We also remembered longtime state legislator Chuck Romine, who passed away this week at 87.

Liz McCormick is our host this week. Our theme music is by Matt Jackfert.

West Virginia Week is a web-only podcast that explores the week’s biggest news in the Mountain State. It’s produced with help from Bill Lynch, Briana Heaney, Caroline MacGregor, Chris Schultz, Curtis Tate, Emily Rice, Eric Douglas, Liz McCormick, and Randy Yohe.
