Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown: West Virginia

Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown: West Virginia

Season 11 Episode 1 of Anthony Bourdain’s show Parts Unknown features West Virginia. The show moves through McDowell County and the towns of Welch and War, both of which I passed through in the spring of 2017.

In my post about the day in Welch, I said:

Secrets you could never know just by passing through.

For me, this episode was particularly interesting because it was like someone pulled back the curtain just a smidge, and I was able to get some insight into people’s lives. I really enjoyed and recommend the show.

Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown is on CNN.

  1. I’ve never been to WV…. well, I’ve passed through 4 times on that stretch of Interstate 70 that passes through the panhandle from PA to OH. I actually have an opportunity to go there in June to participate in a fundraising Saddle Sore 1000.
    I’m going to have to watch that AB show about WV. I looks really interesting. Thanks for this write-up and links!
