Joseph McElroy starts off the show by introducing himself, his relationship with the Smokies, and his drink of choice for the hour. After talking about an upcoming apple festival, McElroy introduces Patrick Womack and asks him a few questions about his upbringing and how he ended up in the Church he works in today. They then go into greater detail about the mentors Womack had throughout his life and how they affected him. Womack recounts his experiences with his grandparents and a terminally ill man and the wisdom they imparted onto him. They finish off the segment with depictions of a few funny stories from their times and sharing a few laughs
They return in segment 2 to talk about Womack’s vintage jeep and how he came to own it. They discuss why Womack feels a connection with history and how it came to be. Afterward, Womack describes a few stories that happened in the valley of Cataloochee, such as how they could dip a tray into the river and pick up a trout for dinner and the reaction of the people when they learned that they had to move due to the government.
They return to talk about the most beautiful spots in the Smokies and the Cataloochee valley that Womack hiked through. The conversation shifts from that to how Womack got into ministry. Originally, he didn’t think he was the type to be a preacher, but he first thought about it after running for school president and realizing he could do public speaking well (or as his grandma called it, making a talk). Next, Womack summarizes the history of tiny Indian towns in Haywood County after their territory was pushed West.
When they come back, McElroy starts off asking why Womack doesn’t drink and a few recommendations for barbeque, including in New York. Finally, McElroy asks what a day in Womack’s life looks like, discussing the best places for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and things to do between all of them according Womack.
