On this week’s “Tying it Together with Tim Boyum,” Tim and Ben tackle North Carolina’s unique alcohol laws, which date back to the Prohibition Era and even the 1700s! We tackle that history with North Carolina History Museum Curator Earl Ijames, who tells the story one of the country’s most famous moonshiners. We’ll also look at how the state is changing its relationship to alcohol and the effort to get the state out of selling it altogether—an initiative that has stirred up some fierce debate on both sides.
