In the wake of this week's events, it's time for The Bitter Southerner to stretch further and reach higher. Today, our thoughts about where The BS rolls on from here...

In 2014, Tom Maxwell and his family rented a historic home, just outside Hillsborough, North Carolina, for cheap. Nine months later, they ran away as fast as they could, fleeing a parade of spirits, apparitions and (yes, we'll say it) haints. Today, as Halloween approaches, we offer a real Southern ghost story and three centuries of bad mojo ...in a house called Nannie.

We recently had a long talk with a founder of one of the South’s most important bands. In three days, Drive-By Truckers will release their 11th studio album, “American Band” - a strident, political powerhouse of a record that’s directly relevant to where our nation and the South find themselves today. We took one of the band’s two founding members - Patterson Hood - back to the place where the band first gained traction 20 years ago, Atlanta’s Star Bar. We had a long conversation about the history of DBT and, of course, the duality of the Southern thing. Today, we bring you that interview - and exclusive video of Hood performing “Ever South” from the new record, plus new video of a tune that goes way back. We’re convinced y’all are going to LOVE today's story. We sure do. (Interview by Chuck Reece, Photography by Jason Hales Photography, Videos by Nathan Bach)

Anyone who has started a technology venture in the South can tell you what Silicon Valley thinks of us: We’re stupid and backward. Today, you will learn why “Southern innovation” isn’t an oxymoron — and never was, really. Join us on a journey around the South to meet a lot of people who are breaking new ground.

You have to hand it to +Alton Brown. For decades he’s rocked food-TV and won us all over along the way. In fact, he’s a true hero here at The Bitter Southerner. Recently, we paid a visit to Mr. Brown’s test kitchen in Marietta, Georgia. There, our Chuck Reece joined Alton to hash over being Southern, divorce without cocktails, and how good food isn’t always the most important thing. Also, Alton’s on the road again. This time with his nerdy culinary, “Eat Your Science” tour. Get your tickets and expect extravaganza. (As in things might blow up.) More on that in today’s story.

Until the 21st century, women were the predominant voices in Southern food writing. Over the last 15 years, though, a “barbecue-entranced, bourbon-preoccupied and pork belly-obsessed horde” of men have stormed the field. Today, one of the finest veteran food writers of the South, The Charlotte Observer's Kathleen Purvis, takes on the need for everybody to be at the table.
