Episode 136

I had the honor of speaking with Ketty a couple weeks ago. It was truly one of my favorite interviews with a previous cast member of Little House on the Prairie and we discuss everything from Ketty’s name to African-American’s in WWII and even to events that caused Michael Landon to have to reschedule the days shoot because of her health condition.  

Ketty’s amazing book can be found here:
