Tiny Homes, The Water Crisis And The State Of The State, This West Virginia Week

Black writing on a yellow background

On this West Virginia Week, we began with interim meetings of the West Virginia Legislature and then the 2024 regular session kicked off on Wednesday along with Gov. Jim Justice’s final State of the State Address. 

We hear about a new program to build tiny homes for kids aging out of the foster care system and a look back at the West Virginia Water Crisis. There are also stories about Appalachian Power’s request to bill customers for an extra $231 million, and we have the minority response to the governor. 

News Director Eric Douglas 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 Schulz, Curtis Tate, Emily Rice, Eric Douglas, Liz McCormick, and Randy Yohe.
