Coronado Quivira Museum Podcast
The Coronado Quivira Museum is announcing a new podcast series! We have uncovered a treasure-trove of research about Rice County's various salt mining operations, and we simply couldn't tell all of the great stories in our Smithsonian Companion exhibit By The Sweat of Their Brows: The Men, Mechanics and Science of Salt. To give some of those stories a chance to be heard, museum staff are working on a podcast series.
The podcast will be available from our website and from I-Tunes Music Store. Check back soon for the first episode!
