What is “The Long and Short of It?”

Inspired by Paul Harvey’s “The Rest of the Story,” we occasionally showcase a person or thing that was widely known and embraced by mid-century popular culture. Examples might be an actor, a toy, or simply an idea that was notably popular in the 50’s, 60’s or 70’s. Tune in to our podcast to see if you can guess who or what it is before the “reveal” at the end!
