Stars and States, The Year Was...?,
AND The Long and Short it"
are our ongoing Series.

Stars and States.

Famous people and interesting facts from each state.

The Year Was...?

Listen to happenings and milestones during the podcast to guess what year we're highlighting.



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!
