We are The Heartbeat of the Mid-Ohio Valley. Based out of Wood County, West Virginia, our podcast is all about our fascinating history and the issues that affect Wood and Washington Counties and the entire Mid-Ohio Valley area. There is a lot going on in our community that most of our residents are unaware of, and we hope to generate in others as much pride in our community as we feel.
