The Homecomers

Introducing: The Homecomers with Sarah Smarsh

August 6, 2019

A national blind spot toward rural and working-class America is driving misleading headlines, broken politics and dangerous fissures in our social fabric. 

The Homecomers with Sarah Smarsh offers a more accurate story of those ill-understood spaces. A native of rural Kansas, journalist and bestselling author Sarah Smarsh brings you intimate conversations with six champions of rural America. As "homecomers"—residents and advocates who remain committed to places where society and the economy would have them "get out"—they are preserving and strengthening the vibrancy and inclusiveness of small towns, rural lands and misunderstood communities that headlines claim are dying.
