Alessandro Portelli may be best known for oral history work in his native Italy, but in many ways, his heart is in Harlan County, Kentucky. He first heard about Appalachian culture in 1960s folk songs, but he didn't get a chance to visit Kentucky until 1973. That's when he first met Annie Napier, a woman he'd later consider family. Alessandro joins Dick to talk about the people he met in Harlan County and what they taught him about the importance of listening to one another.
