Imaginary Oklahoma: KOSU, This Land Press & AIR Launch New Podcast


What do you think about when you think about Oklahoma?

Imaginary Oklahoma is a new podcast from KOSU, This Land Press and The Association for Independents in Radio (AIR) that asks just that question to a group of today’s best fiction writers. The new audio series is based on the book "Imaginary Oklahoma" from This Land Press that Paris Review says "manages to raise the stakes of the short-prose form."

From Franz Kafka to Rodgers and Hammerstein, writers both foreign and domestic have been speculating about Oklahoma for more than a century, proving that Oklahoma is more than a place, it’s an idea.

The podcast weaves together flash-fiction stories from the book with captivating sounds to offer a complex picture of the pan-shaped land with a simple, ghostly narrative.

Produced by Allison Herrera, Imaginary Oklahoma will launch on all major podcast platforms on May 5 and air on KOSU through spring and summer months.
