The Waco History Podcast was created through the joint effort of Randy Lane and Stephen Sloan, creator of Waco History. Randy’s great-grandfather was a Roy E. Lane, a celebrated Waco architect. He was 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 the director of the Institute for Oral History and a professor of history at Baylor University. Although Randy has moved on Dr. Sloan continues that effort of exploring, with a series of guests, Waco’s known and unknown stories.
