Description

In this episode, we go back up the mountain to visit Dolly’s actual Tennessee mountain home.  But, can you ever go home again?  Dolly tells us stories about her first trips out of the holler, and shares with us where she lives now. Back on the mountaintop, standing under the rain by the Little Pigeon River, the trip triggers memories of Jad’s first visit to his father's childhood home, and opens the gateway to dizzying stories of music and migration.

I never thought I could love Dolly more, but here I am. Fantastic series, definitely my favorite. I'm in awe, and have about a million people who need to hear this whole series.

I feel like the word for this episode is "saudade". Dolly seems to be able to perfectly channel that feeling in a lot of her songs and interviews, and I think that's why she's so easy to identify with.

Slightly off topic, but I highly reccomend the Ken Burns Documentary mentioned in this episode. It's called "Country Music", and it was pretty amazing.

Best episode yet. Definitely felt like an episode of Radiolab, and there's nothing wrong with that!
