Interesting local stories!
I love that this podcast focuses on local stories that you probably wouldn’t encounter in another history podcast. I especially love the interview series on the OKC Bombing. Keep preserving local oral history!
I love hearing things that are relevant to the history of where I live and that’s things that are important and happening in Oklahoma now! Keep it up!
Great Oklahoma History podcast
Well-produced and researched local podcast through the OKC metro library system. Hope to hear more soon.
