What Stories Tell Us
My grandmothers communicated lessons and values through stories, stories that stay with you. From stories from the Bible (King James version only!) to Aesop's Fables, there were plenty of stories to be told. In this episode I share one of those stories and reflect on its lessons that still guide me to this day. withinpodcast.com
A Tree Too Far
My Great Aunt proudly displayed an aluminum Christmas Tree in her front window for many years, much to the chagrin of my more traditional relatives. I thought it was great until those shiny trees soon fell out of fashion. Aluminum Christmas Trees are making a comeback, but you might be surprised what killed the fad in the first place! withinpodcast.com
A Watchful Eye and A Little Bit of Good Luck: The Will Rogers Statue
During his lifetime, Will Rogers spoke up for the common man and often, in a good natured way, provided the voice for those unheard to those in the halls of power. He is still keeping an eye on the people in Congress from his vantage point in Statuary Hall. He also grants a bit of good luck to those that are willing to break a few rules. withinpodcast.com
George and Johnnie: One Of His Boys
One hundred years ago or so, George W. Carver enlisted college boys from the South to assist him in spreading his message, not just about farming innovations but also about racial reconciliation. Carver called them "his boys." I interview the Author of a new book about the correspondence between the Wizard of Tuskegee and one of his boys, Johnnie Pickle.
The Big Scare at Beaver Gap
There is a lonely stretch of road in our neck of the woods, the scariest spot in the County, called Beaver Gap. The superstitions of both the Native Americans and the hillbillies of the area fueled the stories of less than friendly spirits out there in the woods. This is the story of me , a station wagon full of classmates and the Big Scare at Beaver Gap.
We all love stories, and that’s what makes this podcast so great. Give it a listen!
I love history, cultural glances, this is something new. A completely different approach to categorizing, looking, and detailing out stories. To oral traditions to the song, You are my Sunshine. Just a wonderful approach.
I listen to a lot of podcasts. I prefer ones that tell a story, whether it’s historical, mythological, or fictional or non fiction. This podcast is about people and subjects no one would have ever been introduced to except through this podcast. I enjoy the way Steve leads the interviews but let’s the subjects tell the story. I definitely recommend this one.
