We've also been running several hour-long "Big Ideas" presentations on StudioTulsa lately, which were originally recorded at the 2015 Aspen Ideas Festival; our thanks to Minnesota Public Radio for providing these recordings.
We will return with new StudioTulsa programs on Wednesday, August 19th. Thank you, as ever, for listening.
