Look who is 30 episodes old! We are excited to reach this milestone, but are continuing to move forward at Artisan Ancestors. In this  episode we talk with the new Executive Director of the Alabama Folklife Association, Mary Allison Haynie, who has just released into the world a traveling exhibit that focuses on the traditional arts and people of Alabama. From chicken and goat stew to Mardi Gras float making, Alabama in the Making honors the people and traditions of Alabama. While looking at older traditions in the state, the program has embraced new technology using iPads to power display kiosks at the various venues where the show travels.
