For more than a half century the Kentucky Arts Council has been the official state agency for the Arts in Kentucky.  If you’ve ever bought something from Kentucky Crafted the Market, heard a reading from one of our poet laureates or attended any Kentucky Writers or Arts Day activities in the Capitol Rotunda you have KAC to thank for that.  And now one of the new ways the Arts Council fulfils its mission is by producing a monthly program delivered straight to your mobile device.  The name of the podcast is KyArtsCast and WUKY's Alan Lytle recently sat down with host and co-producer Tom Musgrave.

Take a walk down Maxwell Street near the UK campus and you'll come across a row of historic houses, one of which is home to Kentucky Humanities; an organization tasked with telling Kentucky's story.  Some of that mission is accomplished though their podcast, Think Humanities.  In this latest edition of Plug Your Podcast WUKY's Alan Lytle interviews the host and executive director Bill Goodman.

What do a mental health counselor, a probation officer and a community services manager all have in common?  They’re all jobs that require helping others; and in the professional sense those folks are called social workers.  The UK College of Social Work has a podcast for people who want to know more about the field or who are seeking more support for what they already do.  In this week's installment of Plug Your Podcast WUKY's Alan Lytle talks with Dr. Blake Jones, co-creator and host of Social Work Conversations.

We're kicking off a new interview series called Plug Your Podcast where we introduce listeners to the people at UK and other places producing new and specialized content.  This week WUKY's Alan Lytle talks with extension specialists Carmen Agouridis and Amanda Gumbert about their new podcast: KYH2o about water quality in the Commonwealth.
