WUNC’s The State of Things and WFAE’s Charlotte Talks join forces to talk about today’s definition of the South, and specifically, North Carolina. There was once “The NEW South,” but with so many business, economic, political and cultural changes across the region, it looks like the “NEW SOUTH” is evolving into something else, whether it’s in Charlotte via the banking industry or the Triangle in the realm of science and technology, or beyond. This hour we’ll talk about some of the ways that North Carolina is helping to redefine the face of the South.
