Season 4, Episode 8

We close out season four of Save Our Towns with a visit to Huntington, West Virginia, the subject of an Oscar-nominated documentary about the opioid epidemic in Appalachia, to see what the city has done to combat the crisis.

Our monthly visit to Pennington Gap highlights the hard work of its community volunteers, while in the “Small Town, Big Number” segment, Holly Kobia zeroes in on economic impact of Southwest Virginia. Plus, Amy Brooks of Appalshop’s Roadside Theater discusses how arts and culture can be valuable assets in local communities.
