Speak Your Piece

A Podcast About Utah's History

Season 1 | Hosted by Brad Westwood

The past is never truly “in the past.” It’s all around us, it informs us. It speaks to both our shared and to our separate identities. “Speak Your Piece” is a podcast where contributors share their insights and discoveries about Utah’s past. When a nation, a community or an individual looks forward, we recommend examining and sorting out the past first. This is what this podcast strives to do for Utah, for all of its regions, and for all of its diverse communities, old and new.

Hosted by Brad Westwood, the senior public historian for the Utah Department of Heritage & Arts, "Speak Your Piece" is published weekly in two segments. The first segment explores general topics: a book’s argument, a database’s unique material, or an exhibit’s compelling story. The second segment explores the stories you may not have heard before, told by a cross-section of Utah historians, curators, and preservationists, as well as rare book dealers, archivists, librarians, and more.

The podcast is recorded and engineered at the Studio Underground at Stokes & Associates in Salt Lake City. Conner Sorenson is the sound and post-production engineer.
