Paul Harvey Podcast

Welcome to the Paul Harvey Podcast. This podcast features the best stories from Paul Harvey's News and Comment and The Rest of the Story shows. He blended news reporting along with an expression of his personal values: love of God and America, Midwestern roots, heart-warming tales of average Americans, family values, and optimism for the future of America. Mr. Harvey was a broadcaster for more than half a century on the ABC News Network with a weekly audience of more than 24 million. He was recognized many times including the Horatio Alger Award and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the United States' most prestigious civilian award. Mr. Harvey passed at age 90 in 2009.

The format for this podcast is rebroadcasting his News and Comment and The Rest of the Story shows. Unfortunately, few of his News and Comment shows are available. They will be featured once or twice a month and I will attempt to schedule them to coincide with major U.S. holidays related to the show topic. With the large library of Rest of the Story shows, I will group them into common themes that will run for three or four consecutive podcast episodes. Most podcast episodes will be about four minutes in length. I will do my best to clean the audio quality of the audio recordings. Sometimes I will post a follow-up PDF document to the podcast that relates to the episode topic. Most of those PDF documents will come from Wikipedia.
