The White Getto!
The White Getto!
Host: Doug “They Were Preppers”
Owsley county Kentucky is the poorest county in the United States. It’s a place with rampant drug abuse, and more Food Stamp fraud, than jobs. A place of despair, and hope at the same time. It’s a place where the typical male has a life expectancy of 10 years less than other places in the Country. A place that’s the poster child for the “American dream gone wrong”. Is this a prophetic place? As places all across our nation deteriorate under the weight of overbloated city budgets, as cities crumble under the blight of neglect… Will Owsley county life be in the future for the rest of America’s 99%? Join us on They were Preppers for “The White Getto, In Appalachia, the country is beautiful, and society is broken” by Kevin D. Williamson.
