Great, but understates Dolly’s beauty
There were many really interesting explorations in this podcast, foremost being of Dolly herself. Also, taking a respectful and serious look into Appalachia culture and history was one of my favorite aspects of the podcast, something I hadn’t encountered before. This made me appreciate Appalachia as a true and distinct minority subculture. I loved the segments with the Southern college students talking about how stereotyping has impacted their lives. I felt at times like Dolly could have been treated even more respectfully. One of the creators confronted Dolly about why she keeps silent about certain things (political, I presume), saying such behavior could hurt people—as though speech itself cannot hurt people, and as though thought conformity is a necessity. The confrontation seemed particularly distasteful and disrespectful to me. Dolly, if you’re reading, please feel no pressure to do anything but continue to take the incredibly humane and inclusive approach you have taken your entire career, until your final breath (many decades from now)! This is your human right and this is what makes you so incredibly inspirational to so many. The producer’s behavior at that moment seemed a touch bullying , and the thoughts behind it operating at a level of humanity a notch below Dolly’s enlightened level—as well as disrespectful to this professional woman’s lived wisdom and experience. Overall however very interesting, and I will recommend it.
