Dr. Walter Edgars, University of South Carolina historian, says his Journal “takes listeners on a journey, from beach music to barbecue, that delves into South Carolina’s past while providing insight into the state’s current affairs. Everything we do in the state is a product of the past. On the Journal, we look at current events in a broader perspective, trying to provide context that is often missing in the mainstream media.”
