Podcast Series - "Survive & Thrive: Oklahomans Reflect on COVID-19 & Racism"


Survive & Thrive is a twenty-four episode podcast series where our team will interview Oklahomans across a diverse spectrum as how to “Survive and Thrive” during the twofold crisis of the pandemic and racial heartache. 

Oklahomans already have a fair amount of experience with trauma, given the Dust Bowl, Tulsa Race Massacre, Trail of Tears, Oklahoma City bombing, etc., and now there is the issue of COVID and racism in the mix of our state's heartaches.

These podcasts are presented by the Institute for the Study of Human Flourishing in collaboration with the Gaylord News.
