RingsmuthRussian Jack. Lyn Ary. Joe Spenard. These were real people. On today’s show, we’ll learn their stories. And we’ll examine the myths that we Alaskans tell ourselves about history. We’ll be joined by historians who know the stories, and who also know how to look underneath what we believe to the reality of Alaska’s past. Join us with your stories and questions.
