J Hall

Dr. J Hall is host of The Okie Bookcast – a podcast celebrating books and writing in and about Oklahoma. Each episode includes an interview with a contributor to the reading life of Oklahoma and a review from an Oklahoma author about a book they love. J is a life-long Oklahoman (even when he lived in Texas) and a life-long lover of books. He lives in Oklahoma City with his wife, Kenda, daughter, Rebekah, and a revolving cast of adult children who come through for holidays, meals, and occasional dog-sitting. His love of learning and education led him to earn a Ph.D. in sociology from the University of Oklahoma where he currently works as an Assistant Dean in the College of Professional and Continuing Studies. J loves books, games, sports, movies and television, traveling with Kenda, and hiking and cycling. The idea for the Okie Bookcast woke him up early one Saturday morning and he’s been chasing it since. You can find the show at okiebookcast.com and follow us on social media – @okiebookcast.
