On this episode, Meet Stoney Stamper, the “Daddy Diaries” blogger and author who finds humor in the little things. Woody Hair welcomes us to a traditional Cherokee hog fry along the creek where friends are like family, and Arkansas park interpreter Sasha Bowles shares how her Cherokee roots influence her daily life and the lives of park visitors.


When country boy Stoney Stamper found himself surrounded by girls, he made light of his situation on social media. His musings struck such a chord, he now runs a successful blog and just had his first book published.

Sasha Bowles is a park interpreter at Arkansas’ Lake Dardanelle State Park, where she teaches visitors about nature, history and her own Cherokee connection to the area.
