The Dust Bowl – Podcast

It was one of America’s greatest horrors—the nearly-decade-long Dust Bowl. “Black Blizzards” suffocated people and animals, armies of rabbits devoured the countryside like locusts, red Oklahoma dirt fell into the Atlantic Ocean. Never were Oklahomans tougher or more resilient than those who lived through it. This is their story.

iHeartRadio star Gwin Faulconer-Lippert and John share the heartbreak and heroism of Dust Bowl Oklahoma. You will never forget it. It’s the fifteenth episode of our weekly OKLAHOMA GOLD! radio program and podcast. Go HERE to listen to them all! Future episodes explore more great heroes, events, and movements of Oklahoma History.
