Connecticut, West Indies, East Indies discussed on My Family Thinks I'm Crazy


I do with all united like figure out how the art of podcasting and how you know. Someone's starting can be successful or how someone who's already been doing it for a while can be more successful. And you know that connecting back to the other point that i wanted to to make an and maybe turned into a question for you is like sure you know being in connecticut. I've noticed like the connecticut river obviously is a big part of the state. But there's so many things that were invented in connecticut from the first helicopter flight to the first submarine The first newspaper the first portable typewriter the first cotton gin first lollipop. You know just all over the map like hamburgers. Apparently have the best pizza you know so like looking into your own local area you can find a lot of these little facts that it'll add up to something maybe not much at first you might be like what what is like A roadside attraction. Type thing you know. What's the what's the point like. It's nostalgic great. But what i'm starting to realize. Thanks some my friend. Michael one is like once you learn about the mystery that there is behind the history of the place you were born so many things start to get piece together like we were just in old saybrook connecticut. Yesterday that i noticed there's an old map and it said that the west indies warehouse was in old saybrook. Now you raise your eyebrows because you're like west indies. That sounds dutch. East indies share does and there was a dutch west indies company. That was very similar to the dutch. East indies company and those companies were very much involved with the founding of yale. University skull and bones is a part of yale university. George w bush. His father were both and his grandfather will all three members of skull and bones so the symbolism the significance. It's there now how that connects right. There's a college in old in yale. Call saybrook college back. In the day. Before yale university was created in new haven it was started in branford which is in between new haven and old saybrook and a lot of these names of places. Were not the same as they were. You know today like people don't realize that sometimes a county becomes a town or a town becomes a county or a town gets renamed or borough becomes the whole town. You know so. There's all these little things that happened in history that add up to larger story one piece of information which homa guy for listener could help me out with this. This would be amazing. But i thought there was an episode of the higher side chats which i lost track of talked-about connecticut governor. Who was once an alchemist. I'm like wow so. There is a connecticut governor. At some point in the eighteen hundreds was practicing alchemy. Or maybe even further back. But you know these are the little pieces of information that we can all like understand and then that can create an experience like what happened to me yesterday so we talked about the snake right. Well we saw that snake as we adventuring around a place called maka moody's state part now mock mood is state..

Coming up next
