Southern tales from a southern girl


Podcast #3 Show Notes - Why should you care about history?


I have a new podcast up on Anchor and it is available on iTunes and wherever you listen to your podcasts!

I had just a few notes from the show so here we go…..

In this episode, I cover why I care about history and why I research all the obscure stuff and things.

I read these two quotes over the course of the show and I thought they were very appropriate for the subject matter. So for those that were interested:

To study history means submitting to chaos and nevertheless retaining faith in order and meaning.
-Herman Hesse

People are trapped in history and history is trapped in them.
-James A. Baldwin

There were also a few articles mentioned that I’ve written so here are the links to those:

Old Salem School

Granny and Grandpa Johns

An Irish Colony in Mississippi

Sorry, this is brief but that’s all I have for now!  Thanks so much for listening and I’d love to hear what you think of the podcast so far.
