This Land Radio: Episode 5, "God and Country" by thislandpress

In a special edition of This Land Radio, we go back to Cold War Oklahoma.

Lee Roy Chapman and Michael Mason tell the story of preacher Billy James Hargis and his unlikely partnership with Major General Edwin Walker. Becky Frank remembers her dad. James Bond (not that James Bond) endorses from the pulpit, and Holly Wall puts it in perspective. Sterlin Harjo and Matt Leach season the show with some Strangelove.
