About the Waco History Podcast

The Waco History Podcast was started by Randy Lane and Dr. Stephen Sloan. Randy’s great-grandfather was a Roy E. Lane, a celebrated Waco architect. He’s responsible for designing the ALICO Building, Hippodrome, and other Waco landmarks. While searching through his own family history, he looked for a podcast about Waco’s history. When one didn’t exist, he sought out the perfect co-host to help him start one. That’s where Stephen comes in.

Dr. Stephen Sloan is in charge of the Oral History Institute on Baylor University. He’s also an professor of history there. Stephen also helped start wacohistory.org, a website devoted to helping people find out more about the city’s past. Together, with a series of guests, they’re looking to tell Waco’s known and unknown stories.
