The Kitchen Table Historian isn’t just a blog, it’s now a podcast, too!
The American Midwest has often been given a wholesome, down-home image. We are humble, polite, hard-working, and kind. We live in ignorant, naïve bliss of the evils that happen outside of our small towns and close-knit sewing circles.
This couldn’t be further from the truth. Every state in the Midwest has a dark side. Come with me, the Kitchen Table Historian, as I share these stories with you, and make you believe that bad things do happen here.
Make sure to tune in and listen to stories of true crime, the paranormal, and the downright bizarre from the dark history of the Midwest. Available on Apple iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play, Blubrry, and TuneIn Radio.

I’ve also had the opportunity to do some radio interviews over the past year with some really cool people. They’re too goo not to share, so I’ve posted links to them below, along with a little blurb about who they are and what we’re talking about. I hope that you enjoy listening to them as much as I enjoyed talking about them!
