Show Notes:

Today the Milk Minute brings you a very special interview. Travel with Heather down to Logan county WV to meet with Alpha Ellison Cook. Grandma Alphie tells us all about raising children in very different circumstances than we do now. This interview recalls so much of what we’ve learned in many of our history episodes and shows us just how those things impacted real people. Our elders have such valuable insight, and your hosts at the Milk Minute feel honored to document some of that with you today!
