ON THE GINSENG PATROL IN APPALACHIAN OHIO

In this narrated audio documentary, I joined tree farmer and ginseng grower Tom Johnson in Scioto County, Ohio for a foot patrol through his property to try to fight off ginseng poachers.

The story aired on West Virginia Public Broadcasting, as well as on the podcast Inside Appalachia
