Tyler Lee comes on the pod to discuss his op-ed concerning the Netflix film Hillbilly Elegy, and what he sees as a poor and misguided attempt to represent his native West Virginia and Appalachia as a whole. (0:36) Then we turn to a different film about the region, Harlan County, USA, to talk about how it continues to resonate today as both a political statement and a model for radical documentary filmmaking. (24:47)
