A podcast of the TCU History Department, where we put the life and times of Horned Frogs into their rightful place in world history.

Welcome to History Frogcast!

We’re pleased to introduce the inaugural season, each episode of which was written and produced by students in US History, 1941 to 1975 during fall semester 2023, taught by Kara Dixon Vuic and Charles Cox.

Episodes begin and end at TCU, with a close-up look at the stories of individual Horned Frogs or at campus events, and place our local histories into the broader narrative of US history. Tune in for more about Horned Frogs who served in uniform during war, about how the campus adapted to the global events of World War II and the early Cold War, and about the lasting legacies of war on our campus.

Join us beginning in January 2024, when episodes will drop each Wednesday.

Until next time, Riff Ram, y’all!
