Listen to stories of Kansans -- some famous, some infamous and some just average folks -- that are contained in documents preserved by the Kansas Historical Society Library and Archives. The letters, diaries, and other documents featured in the biweekly "A Kansas Memory" podcasts provide fascinating glimpses into the past by sharing the words of the people who lived through these events. The documents used in our first series of podcasts are part of Territorial Kansas Online, a virtual repository of primary sources from the Bleeding Kansas era, 1854-1861. The URL for the web site is www.territorialkansasonline.org. Visit www.kshs.org to learn more about the programs and services of the Kansas Historical Society.

The One Minute How-To is your podcast. Each episode features someone just like you who explains how to do something. The catch is that the participant is only given 60 seconds. This means that they need to get right to the point, but isn't that a good thing?
