Ep 171A: Mitch the miner, Teresa Osborne

Mitch and Teresa Osborne are family friends from Harlan Co, KY. Mitch passed on May 17, 2022, at age 67, and I wanted to replay this as a tribute. This interview is actually from October of 2019, but somehow got lost in the shuffle and didn’t make into the archives at that time.

Mitch talks about his career as a coal miner in his younger years – working underground vs driving a huge dozer above ground – the impact on the body,  his family, the mountains, etc. 

Teresa shares about how she got there, the mountain economy and options.
