Oct. 19 Iowa Public Radio Interview

Dennis Reese of Iowa Public Radio interviewed me about the book The Indians of Iowa on Oct. 19 for KUNI (Ames/Des Moines).

The podcast can be heard here as an MP3.

There is some of their public radio fundraising patter for a bit before the actual interview begins. The interview lasts for about 10 minutes, and the rest is their regular broadcast, mostly agricultural news.

Talk about thinking on your feet! I didn't know any of the questions, nor was I able to prepare anything, but I did okay for being so green at unprepared radio interviews :-)

Your book is actually already available as a digital edition/e-book via Adobe’s Digital Editions software. Digital Editions software is available free of charge for PC, Mac, and certain mobile platforms including the Sony E-reader, COOL-ER, and more info can be found at this site:

And click on “add to cart” the electronic book will come up as an option of purchase.
