Episode # 43

A Resilient Toy

Music: Eric Elison

Host: Deb Wittner

Deb recalls how an engineering mishap in 1945 gave us one of the most iconic inventions -- and toys -- of the 20th Century -- the Slinky. We look at the company, its history, and in addition to being one of the most popular toys ever, some of its lesser-known uses.

We welcome back Eric Elison, known as the “Lightfoot of the Rockies”, as he performs one of his original pieces of music.
