Meet The Hosts

Appodlachia was started in December 2019. Chuck and Big John were tired of the negative portrayal of Appalachia in the media and decided to start a podcast that pushed back against that narrative, providing a new and authentic voice for a region misunderstood and forgotten by most of the country. We’re shrewd, witty, comical, sometimes irreverent, and always honest.
