Episode Info

Episode Info:

Dayton was hit square in the jaw over and over again in 2019, but no matter how hard the blow, the Gem City stood up together. Community members share stories of struggle, survival and strength in this special episode of the “What Had Happened Was" podcast. Dayton-area residents were invited to the Dayton Metro Library a few weeks ago to tell stories related to the terrifying Memorial Day tornadoes, Oregon District mass shooting and community unifying events that include a KKK rally. They told podcast host Amelia Robinson and Dayton Daily News reporter Cornelius Frolik tales of courage, generosity and personal pain. Participants range from a video game obsessed pre-teen who lost everything in the tornadoes to a football coach who rushed to pick his son up from the Oregon District after nine people were murdered. This episode is part of the Dayton Strong Storytelling Sessions. Additional stories will be shared as part of a WHIO-TV special.
