In this episode we bring you two stories from the Southern Foodways Alliance award winning podcast: Gravy! The first, Bluegrass Tacos, guides us through stories and sounds of Lexington, KY’s Tortillería and Taquería Ramírez.  And the second, Stories from the Hem of My Mothers Apron introduces us to Hannah Drake, an African American woman in Louisville, KY who sees food as a way to bridge a missing link to Africa as well as pass down recipes, culture, and stories to the next generation.

Music on this episode is Owen Snake Champan with a tune called Devil Ate the Groundhog, from Appalshop’s own JuneAppal Recordings.
