She spoke about Western Kentucky identity, including why she moved to Western Kentucky as an adult, what she believes "Western Kentucky" encompasses, her perspective on the evolving political identity of the region, and what parts of the region inspire her writing.

In addition, Robert updated the story about Chad Meredith, and did a few Quick Hits.
