Kate Barnard - Oklahoma's Good Angel (Part 1) - Podcast


Oklahoma radio star Gwin Faulconer-Lippert, Southern Nazarene University author and historian John J. Dwyer, and the only person so far who is too big to fit into just one OKLAHOMA GOLD episode—4-foot, 11-inch, 90-pound Irish-American hurricane Kate Barnard, “Oklahoma’s Good Angel.” Greatest defender of the forgotten and marginalized in Oklahoma history. She stood up for abused children, prisoners, laborers, the poor, and the Indians when NONE of that was popular to do.

We hope you enjoy Part 1 of an unforgettable saga of Oklahoma courage and grit, about John’s personal favorite Oklahoma hero. The eighth episode of the weekly OKLAHOMA GOLD! radio program and podcast. To hear them all, visit our special Oklahoma Gold page HERE!
