Podcast 61: Confederate Monuments. Drive-By Truckers.

What do the Richmond Confederate monuments and the Alabama band Drive-By Truckers have in common? Colin sits down with Chris Graham, a Ph.D. in history, Richmond transplant, and Truckers fan, to talk about intersections between the 19th and 21st century South. As it turns out, the Civil War’s legacy has a lot to do with the Truckers, whose most recent album, American Band, got political.

Also, legendary drummer Ginger Baker stops by the studio to dispense a few words of wisdom.
