Episode 59 – Local History Center at the Westerville Public Library

Beth Weinhardt has one of the best jobs in Columbus. She gets to manage the Westerville Local History Center located inside of the Westerville Public Library.  There, she curates the vast archive of information regarding the Anti-Saloon League, and the prohibition movement that had strong roots in the Rural Westerville Community of the early 20th century.  

Robert and Craig braved the cold to travel to Westerville to talk with her about how she ended up where she did. This is a fascinating show full of the history of prohibition.

Episode 56 – Columbus Axe Throwing

Our last show of the year! We crashed Marty Parker’s staff appreciation party to talk with him about axe throwing, escape rooms, color runs, bubble runs, tomato fights, and all the other events he runs through his various companies.  We are, in fact, in the middle of an axe throwing party, so the audio on this one is a little rough.

We will be taking the next two weeks off for the holidays, so we’ll see you all again in 2018.

Runtime: 43:22
