The Stuhr Crazy Podcast features Stuhr Museum staff as they explore history through the lens of our 1890s Railroad Town and the people who make it work. Each week we focus on a new historic subject, whether it’s one of our buildings in Railroad Town and the people who might have lived and worked in it, or something entirely different. From there we interview someone who has a connection to the subject from our community or beyond. The show is fun, informative and we really hope you enjoy it. We ask that if you like Stuhr Crazy, please share it with your friends who love podcasts and help us grow! Have an idea for a topic you’d like to see us discuss? Send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll see what we can find out!
You can find the podcast on Apple Podcasts, Soundcloud, Stitcher, Spotify or wherever you find podcasts.
Our current season of podcasts will be available on our website with a new episode being released each Friday. Thanks for listening!
