On this ONR, we explore the payday loan stores that Oklahomans are using in droves--as much as twice the national average. Then, as bodies of water dry up and a key aquifer in southeastern Oklahoma is depleted, residents are left wondering if local mining operations are to blame. In the eastern wing of the state, three entities--a university, a hospital, and a high school--are banding together to help end the shortage of rural doctors. Medicine isn't the only concern of rural parts of the state. We speak with Mike Spradling, President of the Oklahoma Farm Bureau, about the Farm Bill languishing in Congress, and what that means for local farmers. Plus, the Great State Fair, voters speak their mind, and painting up the ice, on this ONR.

The Great State Fair of Oklahoma--it's not all deep-fried Oreos and Tilt-A-Whirls. It's also showdown between livestock professionals and students from across the state to determine who's the top dog--or, in this case, cow--in the Grand Champion competition.

On this episode of the ONR, oil production is booming in Oklahoma, and that means employment for many across the state. But the work, while plentiful, can be dangerous, as we learn from StateImpact's Joe Wertz who has been reporting on the pitfalls of the oil field. In Tulsa, researchers from across the United States and around the globe gather to work out a harrowing problem: why does child abuse keep occurring, and what can be done to stop it? Plus, we speak with one of the nation's last political cartoonists and the news cycles that inspire him, visit Oklahoma wine country, and get lost in a maze--or is it maize?--of Thunder, on this ONR.

Artists tend to live on the outliers of society, observing and creating from afar. But on that edge, a group of women in Oklahoma banded together to support each others' artistic endeavors. Appropriately enough, they branded themselves 'Fringe' and after a year together, the group has become a full-blown organization.

In this ONR, an interim study takes a closer look at the Oklahoma Department of Veteran Affairs, and what they find isn't pretty. Copper thefts are on the rise, but one local company is using its ingenuity to halt thieves, and perhaps save a few lives along the way. A local company shutters its doors, and the loss of over a hundred jobs hits hard. Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle: it's the new motto of one Oklahoma company, as they craft a plan to recycle hydraulic fracturing water. Plus, business news, U.S. senators, and kilts and car repairs, on this ONR.

From the different tribes that span the state to the scores of settlers from every corner of the map that put down roots in the state's red clay, Oklahomans have some colorful heritage. But some are celebrating that heritage a little more than others. Two mechanics in Tulsa are actively celebrating their Scottish background--at least until the heatwave breaks.
