Why Am I Willy Bearden

Hi, I’m Greg Sowell, and this is Why Am I, a podcast where I have conversations with interesting folks to try and trace a path to where they find themselves today. My guest this go around is Will Bearden. If you’ve ever been curious about history in Memphis or the Mississippi delta, odds are you’ve seen one of his videos, or perhaps come across one of his books. He’s a southern gentleman who loves telling stories. He documents the people who’ve made history in the South so that they may live on, and my hope also is so that he can live on amongst them. Enjoy this chat with Willy.
