Long Story Short, A Brief History of History – Cody J Foster and Dara R Vance, Co-Producers

LongStoryShort is a podcast with an international listening audience that explores contemporary ideas with a historic perspective, targeted at 14-20 year old students.    The podcast began as a flourish of an idea in July 2015.  With no budget, and less time, Foster and Vance wrote and produced a season of episodes resulting in a global audience. Topics in Fall of 2015 included the efficacy of elections, female presidential candidates, Victorian Serial Killers, Christopher Columbus, and even some Christmas holiday lore.
