In Episode 12 I share the process and results of my Ancestry DNA test. There were definitely a few surprises but overall it was a highly informative and positive experience. I'll let you know the nuts and bolts of the process for anyone who was thinking of purchasing a test kit for themselves.
We take a look back at one of the originals of New England amusement parks, Rocky Point. Based in Warwick, Rhode Island it existed in one form or another for almost 150 years. From picnicking to political speeches, to clambakes and fantastic rides Rocky Point Amusement Park made memories for generations of New Englanders.
Next we go way Back In the Day to those exciting times that you'd get to school and see a film projector or television sitting in a dimly lit class. I found several classic educational films I'll share, plus best of all I'll link you to a motherload list of films for you to check for yourself!
This Week In History includes the world's first telephone call, a creation of one of the all-time great board games, and more!
Also be sure to check out my new livestreams called Without A Map Friday's at 5pm on Instagram which serve as a sort of postgame show for the podcast. Find them on IGTV and YouTube after they've finished.
