This week Oklahoma Watch published something you can’t read.
Thanks to a gift from the Kirkpatrick Foundation, we uploaded the pilot episode of “Long Story Short,” a weekly podcast that’s been long discussed and, at long last, launched.
The idea is to deliver a more personal take on the news. Executive Director Ted Streuli hosts the show, talking to reporters about the stories they’ve recently written to bring additional depth and insight to the piece.
The podcasts runs about 15 minutes, divided into three five-minute segments.
In the pilot (listen below):
- Reporter Trevor Brown talks about what he learned about reluctant patients after talking to doctors about COVID vaccines.
- Whitney Bryen expands on her research that showed a spike in Oklahoma suicides that coincided with the pandemic.
- And Keaton Ross explains the new connections being drawn tying adverse childhood experience scores to incarceration rates

The show will evolve; we will invite some of our sources to participate and some weeks we might just surprise you with a topic that we haven’t written about yet. We’ll be adding a little polish too — we’re new at the podcasting game and still have plenty to learn, but we invite you to join us on the journey
