From Your Eyes to Your Ears… WVU Magazine unleashes Sparked, a new podcast

WVU Today

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — You’ve read our magazine. Now you can experience it in an auditory realm.

Sparked is a podcast of West Virginia University Magazine that is all about the people who are changing Appalachia’s future for the better. We know you’ve heard about our challenges. But there’s more to the story. Reporting on the region every day for several years has shown us how the University’s people are setting off sparks that are changing the economy, jobs, education and perceptions of Appalachian culture.

In our first episode, “Old Home Place,” we delve into Appalachian music and how Travis Stimeling, assistant professor of music history, and his band of college students are teaching children this music from their past – and how it can be part of their future.

Listen to this episode and future ones at or on iTunes or SoundCloud.
