Everybody has a story to tell. Hear some of those stories in the new podcast Smithsonian’s Stories from Main Street. Gathered by the Smithsonian’s Museum on Main Street program, the stories featured in these curated episodes feature the authentic voice of small-town America. The first season takes inspiration from the many people who have shared stories during national tours of the Museum on Main Street exhibition Water/Ways. The episodes dive into an essential biological and natural resource of life—water. Listen to stories that reflect water’s impact on work and play, in agriculture and landscape, and in personal experience and memory. Dip your toes in with this trailer. The season debuts Sept. 4 on most podcast platforms.
