Old Kentucky Tales: The Speech is Mightier than the Pork

Nov 13, 2017


  Welcome to this edition of “Old Kentucky Tales,” the only podcast that solemnly swears that none of its participants have fought a duel with deadly weapons within this State, or out of it.

In this episode of Old Kentucky Tales, we will look at a controversial statue of the past in our “Yesterday’s News” segment, and for our “Main Event” we will examine J. Proctor Knott’s legendary Duluth Speech, which turned a massive railroad project into a national joke.

Special Thanks to our Sound Engineer Todd Birdsong, the Paducah School of Art and Design, and WKMS.  – And the Rest is History
