Mtn. Talk: “Heroin(e)” WV Women Battling the Drug Epidemic
This week we explore the new Netflix documentary “Heroin(e)” which follows three women – a fire chief, a judge, and a street missionary as they battle Huntington, West Virginia’s drug epidemic. We interviewed the film’s director, Elaine McMillion Sheldon, and one of the stars: Huntington’s Fire Chief Jan Rader on October 27th here in the studio. Sheldon is a WV filmmaker who produced the award winning interactive documentary “Hollow” and Rader is the first woman to become a fire department chief in WV History.
