Ozarks: Full Circle

From the State of the Re:Union series: The Ozarks have long been an isolated part of the country. Here, families have stayed in the same hollows for generations with little influence from the outside world. Everyone knows everyone else, which means that daily life here is steeped in the past, for better or for worse.

In this episode, SOTRU goes deep into the lives of people who live with the ghosts of their past: a family living with the legacy of a murder, young fiddlers learning songs passed down for centuries, and a married couple overcoming a history of domestic violence together.

More on this episode here.

Airing  Sunday, August 12. You can hear The Listening Room Sunday nights at 9:00 p.m. on WWNO, 89.9 FM.
