In this episode of These Ozarks Hills, master storyteller and folklorist Marideth Sisco reflects on the humorous, flawed ways some of us Ozarkers have spoken about our anxieties in the past. 

Listen to the episode below:

Marideth is a Missouri storyteller, veteran journalist, teacher, author, musician and student of folklore focusing on stories relevant to Ozarks culture and history. Each month, she’s the voice behind "These Ozarks Hills.” Sisco spent 20 years as an investigative and environmental writer for the West Plains Quill and was well known for her gardening column, “Crosspatch,” on which her new book is based. Sisco was a music consultant and featured singer in the 2010 award-winning feature film “Winter's Bone.”
