A Little Taste of Moonshine

I don’t watch much reality TV, but sometimes I’ll take a gander at Moonshiners. One of my favorite episodes to watch was this season when Jim Tom was involved. He’s a retired moonshiner who sits on an overturned bucket by his mobile home, shouting a howdy to anyone who comes by.
Current shiners will take the time to visit and listen to Jim Tom’s version of outrunning the law, or perfecting a particular run of shine. His joy and lack of filter makes the show worth watching.
