This year for Valentine's Day, skip the corner store bouquets and mass-produced cards and make a plan to head out to Lawton and pick from a selection of lovely, original art and jewelry from Native makers. The Valentine's Day Extravaganza this Saturday at the Comanche Nation Complex promises dozens of vendor booths and an array of delicious food options. The event's organizer, Comanche artist Martha Negron, joins the podcast to talk about what will be available for purchase, the work it takes to pull off an event like this, and her own Wild Spirit's Native Boutique label (which will have a booth present on that day). 

Also on this week's podcast, the editors share some of their favorite Oklahoma date destinations, podvents crush it, and a special surprise at the very end. You don't want to miss it! 

The Oklahoma Today Podcast is sponsored by Bravado Wireless.
