Episode 10 marks 7 years since the very first author event for my very first book In My Footsteps: A Cape Cod Travel Guide. I take a look back at that event, what led up to it, how it went, and how events evolved after.
This week's Road Trip takes us as far east as we can go in the United States. The tiny town of Lubec, Maine is within sight of Canada and has a special spot in my heart. It was West Quoddy Head Lighthouse that was my first must-see destination as a travel writer. However there is much more to Lubec.
The first children's cable television channel was Nickelodeon. We go Back In the Day to discover its origins, relive the golden age of the mid-1980's, and look at how it changed the face of children's television.
This Week In History features a lesser known lighthouse for sale, the birth of the United States Postal Service, how Valentine's Day got started, the birth of a music icon, and another new Time Capsule.
I also reveal my ballot for the 2021 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame! All of this and more on Episode 10 so come on and take a walk!
