Week of May 30, 2021: From President Dwight Eisenhower to ICBM bases and the made-for-TV movie, "The Day After" -- the surprisingly large role of Kansas during the Cold War.  Dr. Landry Brewer of Southwestern Oklahoma State University (Sayre campus) is the author of "Cold War Kansas."  We'll also hear from Dr. Erik Scott at the University of Kansas; his latest project is Cold War in the Heartland.
