Lubbock’s National Ranching Heritage Center partners on educational curriculum

“Hank the Cowdog” podcast series to premiere September 14


“It’s me again, Hank the Cowdog!” This opening statement has been the start of over seventy-four children’s books in an ongoing series by John R. Erickson which has sold more than ten million copies worldwide. Now, that very same line will open a brand-new podcast series starring Matthew McConaughey as “Hank the Cowdog.” 


You can preview the podcast here:


From Tri-State Pictures, HTC Productions and QCODE, “Hank the Cowdog” is written, directed and executive produced by Jeff Nichols (Shotgun Stories, Take Shelter, Mud, Midnight Special, and Loving). McConaughey will also serve as an executive producer. The five-episode season, which will also feature original musical numbers, will launch on September 14 through QCODE and be available on Apple Podcasts and all major podcast platforms.


The pairing reunites the two who collaborated on the 2012 film, Mud. McConaughey is joined by a supporting cast which includes Jesse Plemons, Cynthia Erivo, Kirsten Dunst, Leslie Jordan, Joel Edgerton, Scoot McNairy, Michael Shannon, and John R. Erickson. Nichols and McConaughey are joined by executive producers Sarah Green & Brian Kavanaugh-Jones of Tri-State Pictures, Mark Erickson of HTC Productions, and Rob Herting of QCODE. 


The family podcast has partnered with Lubbock’s National Ranching Heritage Center on an educational curriculum.
