Friday Find: “Nourish” by Howard Conyers

Howard Conyers is a literal rocket scientist from Manning, SC who attended NC A&T in Greensboro for undergrad and Duke University for grad school where he earned a MS and PhD. He now has a show on PBS’s YouTube Channel, and the first episode is on SC whole hog.

Watch this episode for a short-course on everything you need to know to fire up the pit for this regional Southern tradition.
