Love these podcasts. The range of information is incredible, and it’s one podcast whose episodes I must hear more than once, and share with others. Thrilled to see the segment about Daisy Bates. Not enough is known about her, this was a thrill to find, so aptly done. Keep it up, each segment is sublime. Here is source information made to come alive.
