PLAINS, Ga. — In this special edition of the Politically Georgia podcast, hosts Greg Bluestein and Patricia Murphy take you to Plains, where an entire town prepares to say goodbye to a beloved friend, neighbor and former president affectionately known here as simply “Mr. Jimmy.”
Meet the people of this small southwest Georgia town who have grown up with Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter.
Our insiders will take you to the former president’s boyhood farm, the high school the Carters attended, and downtown Plains to hear stories that will make you laugh and cry.
