LISTEN ON SOUNDCLOUD
The Beaver County History Podcast promotes and celebrates Beaver County’s rich heritage and history through wide-ranging conversations with public historians, such as local museum directors, curators, tour guides, re-enactors, educators, authors, storytellers, filmmakers, and others who help keep local history alive for current and future generations.
The podcast is also dedicated to capturing, preserving, and sharing the voices and stories of our time through community oral histories and documenting local folktales, legends, and lore–including local ghost stories and other culturally significant tales of the paranormal.

- Emphasize cultural and social history
- Include and value more diverse local histories
- Promote local history museums and historical societies
- Develop media partnerships with local museums and historical societies
- Make the podcast more sustainable through sponsorships, advertising, and other funding
