"He was from I think the lower, a little bit lower than cooperstown area. So it's like the New York part of the Susquehanna river where he particularly lived at this point in time, but he was from the Ohio River valley and died in Canada. This was just towards the midpoint of his life. But the Mohawk Indians were very legendary all across the east coast for being brave warriors, brutal warriors. It's interesting because they had all of these alliances with the British, the Germans, and the different colonists. They almost saw the colonists more of an equal than they did, their fellow indigenous tribes because where I'm from, there's the housatonic river. And I think I mentioned this on this podcast. I was like, I don't know what the housatonic means and I want to find it out. Well, I found out that the actual name of the river is the puta tuck river. And that is given its name from a very well-known prominent chief who was sort of like the patriarch of many different clans that all settle along this river. But one thing I learned while I was researching this housatonic river is that when the Mohawk Indians would come, the puda tuck Indians had a series of mountains where they could convey a message over 200 miles within two to three hours through a series of calls and alerts. In those times, if the Mohawk showed up, you had to pay them tribute or they would take your whole tribe clan hostage and kill all the men and take the women and children. So it was very the Mohawk were very different than this kind of Thanksgiving idea that we have of indigenous people. They were all nice and hunting and we came along. We screwed it all up for them, got them sick. I feel like you either get the whitewashed pre or post World War II version of Native Americans where they were just like happy go lucky hunter gatherers who got squashed by modern times. Pre World War II, the narrative was like, well, they were so savage and they didn't only the ones that went with Christianity were worth saving. And the rest were just savages. Neither of those explanations are true..

"I mean, this does he think the Vaccine will do the trick. I mean, I'm again. I'm I don't actually believe these questions. I'm asking, but I'm pretty. I'm pretending like I'm naive for a second. Just because I want to try a new tactic in the new year and say, Does he think what if the vaccine comes? This can end. Unfortunately, I don't I think we're always going to find another reason. Because we've seen that throughout that There's always another. You know, it's if you wear your mask, okay, We can get back to work. Well, we've been doing that. People have been abiding by that yet he continues to close restaurants despite the lack of data saying that that's where we're seeing the spread of the virus. So I don't trust anything that they say. Is that OK, do this. Then you'll have your freedom back. This is why I think it's so important that our state Legislature curtail those emergency powers on duh limit. His abilities there without um you know legislative input because he's been able to circumvent all of that, but the General Assembly has been totally sidelined. In any of this decision making on he really enjoys that. I think he loves not having to deal with the Legislature, and that's a big part of the problem Is that when someone Consolidates that level of power and can effectively, um, the declare things one day without any check or or review. He's really enjoying that power right now. Unfortunately, Matt I met you. I don't know. I guess it's been maybe 10 years ago. I mean, we've been friends a long time and and it was back when we were talking about it was Governor Corbett and we were talking about, you know, privatizing liquor sales. And I wondered back then, with a total control of the Republican Party in Harrisburg. If we'd see real reforms we didn't and I was very frustrated and disappointed. And and now we've got total executive Democrat Control but still Republican legislative control and now we've been through a terribly contentious and I think unconstitutional election and all hell has rained down on the Commonwealth. And lots of attention has been paid. And now we've got some new leadership in the Senate side anyway, I guess how side to do you think this General assembly maybe? I mean, this is my hope again. I hope I'm not being naive. In my question. I hope this is an earnest question. I'm asking and hope you're gonna give me an earnest Yes. Do these people get it to these Republicans and this General assembly in this new leadership. Do they understand? Now they're under the gun that they've been rolled that they're surrounded by jackals. That have absolutely taken advantage of them, and they've got something. They've got a job to do here. Do they get it now? Yeah, Christmas is where? When I looked back. I've been working in these fields for almost two decades. Now, Um, I see incremental improvement. And that's the good news is that I do believe we have we have a very high quality people that are in positions of leadership. On in our Legislature, not everyone, but we have many more than you and I first met. I will tell you that that we're moving in the right direction. And I think That the actions of this governor have demonstrated that they need to really flex their muscles that in fact, they are the real two representatives of the people when you're talking about 203 House members 50 senators and this governor's consolidation of power into the executive branch has been very, very harmful in making sure Pennsylvanians Can, you know? Survive these lockdowns and so to me, Chris. We're moving in the right direction. This last election actually improve things even further, So that's where I'm hopeful. That doesn't mean that things are just going to happen, and and we're going to see the glory days here. We're gonna have to continue to hold them accountable and press them because the incentives And the pressures to do the wrong thing are very, very high school. That's that's the challenges that we will always and forever face continue to employ, folks. And I don't mean to sound like a scold or in Agra. You know, a sanctimonious, you know, jerk on the radio. I just say, I think we get kind of caught up in the national food fight of Washington, D. C. And I certainly been guilty of it for years on my own show. But this last year this pandemic on but we saw happen with this election in Pennsylvania. If this is not taught us to learn who are Elected. State representatives are common with representative and our Commonwealth senators are If we don't learn who those people are and followed closely what they're doing. I don't know what will make us pay attention. If not this last year. Yeah, indeed. I mean, it was where It wasn't the folks on the Potomac River who can impact your lives and livelihood. The most is the folks on the Susquehanna River up in Harrisburg on that's why I have, you know, long focused on state government because That is where they have a much greater impact than on the folks down. You know, in Washington, D. C. Not to say that that's not equally important, but I gotta say what happens in the state government? Um, you know, those are the folks that can keep you out of a job or destroy your business. Great work that Bree it at the Commonwealth Partners. Thanks so much for your time this morning. Thank you, Chris. Good to be with you. Happy New Year, 7 51 still to come. Daniel Horowitz, Conservative Review Podcast, senior editor of the blaze. He has a very similar message,.

That's f o w l like the bird It's named after my murder. Mystery company called the foul players of perryville. Perryville is where. I live in maryland. Were about fifty miles northeast of baltimore. The reason why we make that ton or whatever you would say it would be for. Foul is because The town i live in is right on the susquehanna river which is known for its multiple species of waterfowl people. They have actual waterfowl museums ear to talk about that stuff so we figured it'd be a nice play on words for foul play my head. The murder mystery company for a couple of years. Now we perform on boats and on trains office parties and vineyards and whoever have us. I also am a musician. I right now have an acoustic duo. That i've had for about fifteen years and we're kind of comedy act sort of similar to the smothers brothers. It's two of us. We play acoustic guitars and the humor isn't as much when with the banter between us as it is with the humor's actually in songs so that's called. The uncle moldy show. And we perform a in the maryland area a wide knob sometimes in pennsylvania to most recently. You may know me as the viking. And the jim what worth commercials while riding around on the bus. I was the big viking. That came out of the back You've also seen me this year on kimmy versus the reverend if you haven't seen that movie it's based on the unbreakable kimmy schmidt and it's there's a scene where kimmy and tight us. The two main characters are way out in the country and they come into a bar. There's a leonard skinner ban. they're playing. And i'm the bartender in there. I won't give away the movie. But it's an interactive movie but no matter what choices you make in the movie. You always get to see me. So that's the good part about it. You know it's it's not like that movie revolved around me or anything like that We have been nominated nominated for a couple of emmys I believe it was for best special perhaps and then Titus burgess has been nominated for an emmy for male performance. I believe as well. I'm excited about that. I'm also appeared on gotham. I wish unseasoned. Five episode eight played one of the penguins henchman named dale. I was shot to death in the third scene.

After that when the hairband started going out we were called orange seed parade we played. Cbgb's in new york a number of times. And you know open for a couple of national acts over the years. So yes so. That's me in a nutshell so we can get a little more specific if you like Depending well you know the first thing that you said that caught my ear was the susquehanna river and i was thinking of that old. Avidan castillo routine about the susquehanna company. All right right squad at company there may have been years ago but the majority of there's only a couple of miles of the susquehanna bets in maryland and it actually goes all the way up to near upstate new york so there could be something on the way you know that river goes through lancaster and harrisburg and it goes quite a ways up. I believe almost up to upstate. New york if it doesn't start up there somewhere along the line. I'm sure there was and with your murder mystery troop you. You're an actor in the troupe. Right yes i am. Yeah okay so basically your book like for parties and stuff like that and there's someone who's been killed in they have to figure out if it's you or one of your co stars did it.

"At the time. He wrote it General Washington still hoped to prevent the British army from entering Philadelphia and was begging for more supplies. Lancaster was about sixty miles from Philadelphia. Probably at least two days March for the British army. However, the delegates decided it was not quite far enough off after tending to a little more business in that one day session Congress adjourned it ended the session in Lancaster with a resolution to meet three days later in the town of York, Pennsylvania. The new location will be twenty miles further from Philadelphia. It would also be across the Susquehanna River placing another natural barrier between Congress and the British Army in Philadelphia. Another reason for the move. Was that the Pennsylvania legislature was also meeting in Lancaster. The combination of the two legislative bodies was probably more than the small town could handle thus Lancaster had its one day as the nation's capital. York would become the seat of Congress for nine months on the first day in New York president Hancock received more correspondence from General gates with further updates. He fought them to General Washington since Gates was not keeping the commander up-to-date directly Hancock added his own note saying that he hoped to receive word from Washington soon that he had totally reduced General Howe's Army Washington, of course made that attempt on October 4th when he attacked at Germantown see episode 163 despite his failure at Germantown Congress nevertheless congratulated Washington on the attempt and ordered a metal struck in his honor. Despite the congratulations delegates were not optimistic John Adams wrote in his diary indicating his desire for a new military leader who could lie down Erica to Victory quote Heaven grant us one Great Soul one leading mind would extricate the best cause from the ruined that seems to await it off we have as good at cause as ever was fought for one active masterly capacity would bring order out of this confusion and save our country home around the same time Samuel Adams made a speech to the delegates where he said our Affairs are said to be desperate but we are not without hope and not without Courage the eyes of the people this country are upon us here and the tone of their feeling is regulated by hours. If we as delegates in Congress give up in Despair and grow desperate public confidence will be destroyed and American Liberty will be no more having he's just been chased out of Philadelphia. The delegates really seem to be feeling on the ropes and desperate at the end might be near Samuel Adams ended his speech by seeking Hope from God to save the cause quote there have been great times since the opening of this war when we were reduced almost to distress but the great arm of a manip attendance office has raised us up..

"Today on the ominous our I'm going to take you guys on a journey to some place. I actually frequent it quite a lot as kid. I have the wonderful mix with me that day and they're going to listen to some spooky stories. Yes, Japan jazz hands. So I like to call this segment local lore. And today we're going to do all about the Susquehanna River and this is going on the river in short runs through three different states. It's 440 miles forty four miles long. It spans three states and it's the longest river on the East Coast dead. So it's pretty big that's a load of miles. That is a lot of miles. So in short in like the little valleys of Pennsylvania, like this was how people like made a living they did logging they'd had barges. They've had fairies. This is how they got places before they were roads cuz there was mountains and all this other stuff. There was also Native Americans that lived up and down the coast of the river as well. So we have that added to this. Yes, it's a boy. Yeah, you can imagine. So one of the things that I noticed when I was researching stories was that the most common hauntings are a lot of young women and girls that are life wanting the Riverbanks. So we're going to do this one story that I found online. So one man online recounts that late one night when he was unable to sleep. He had head down to the Riverside around 2 a.m. To sit on one of the benches. It was there that he spotted what looked like a girl who was drowning in the river and he rushed down and he went to pull out his phone and when he looked back up the girl was gone. He assumed that she had drowned in the water and you know who are as he was filled with all the sadness and regret need all that good stuff. Well, obviously it's not good stuff, but However, he didn't have long to mourn for her because when he realized what happened, he heard noises behind him where he had walked down from the bench and the girl was now behind him and what he had heard was the splashing of her leaving the river and she's now sitting on the bench behind him. So the guys laughing he's assuming that this is some sort of a prank he moved closer and he's like scolding her for scaring him. And as soon he got close enough to look in her eyes, he realizes that her eyes are completely white and there's.

Hey, guys, listen to you every day. I love it. Thank you. Thank you Appreciate it. Well, I called, uh, tagging onto Kylie's paranoia.

Ah, we were I was driving off in a you know, Blaine back Backroads down in like Manalapan on DH motorcycle was coming towards me in the opposite lane, and it was a turn and as he was turning, he went down on his side wiped out right in front of me. He hit he and the way the motorcycle hit my car. It hit the driver's side wheel and it caved in and crushed my leg. Oh, God, Like as he was coming towards me, I saw him going on his side. Now, if I even hear a motorcycle, I just like go right through a panic attack. Okay. How? How? How was your leg and did he get killed? But no, he didn't get killed. And the surprising thing is that They couldn't When they investigated it. They couldn't even find a helmet. And, uh the only thing I know about him was that he has a plate in his head. He did survive and my leg I have Ah, Steel Rod plate fruits. Ah! Yeah. All right. Well, you would have a good reason. You kidding? Actually Had it happened to you All right. Hey, Debra. Thanks for your call. 1 800 to 83101.5. Did you ever hear of this? I've heard of people. Who are afraid to drive with the windows down? No, because there's something flying into the car. Really? Yeah, I've heard of it. Yeah, I've heard of it. My grandmother's horrible fear. Now, this was just a passenger. She never drove a car a day in her life. How weird is that? She never once drove a car, but any time she was in a car she had to make you pull over and get gas. It did not matter if you had 4/5 of a tank. She had to have you get afraid of running out again? I don't know what happened to get stranded somewhere, said never She said. Never. I asked her one time and she died when I was a kid, But I did ask her and Ah, yes, she says. I just I don't know. I don't know. What would you do? Well, you would do what you have to do, Grandma. I mean, people run out of gas. They don't die in a susceptible. You know, I was talking to Nick in Beachwood. You're in New Jersey One a 1.5. Made in the first time caller. I'm a big fan. Thanks, Hank. Welcome. What took you so long? God, I just I have no no. Okay. I was just joking anyway. So what's Ah? What? What gets to you when you're driving? Um, I'll be on a base program like the parkway that starts like coming upon an entrance ramp. If I go if I see a car coming onto the, um major road I'm afraid of them, not starting engines into the right lane and just sites like me. Yeah, And that's one that you deal with every single day. See, that's not even a paranoia. That is a real world thing. I just not unrealistic with all the terrible mergers there are right. It's not even right now. You never had it happen, though. You never got struck that way. No, uh, we've gotten close and the guy wasn't paying attention, and my dad moved over just in time. Oh, you think that's what did it to you? You think that's when it cemented in your head? Yeah. Yeah, it was scary, especially being in the passenger seat. Yeah, Yeah. There are some jerk. Yeah, because it would've been your side. Yeah, Yeah, There's some jerks that just don't understand. You. You don't pace the car That's in the right lane. Slower or faster. What are the other? It's not that difficult, right? All right. Hey, Nick, Thanks for your call. Jeff from Great Meadows. You're on New Jersey. 1.5 guys. Uh, many time caller Welcome back. Great. Hey, Jeff, can I ask you a question? What's with all the wind? That sounds windy where you are. And sorry, demonic pontoon boat in the middle of a mountain lake in Warren County. So get the hell outta here. You're listening to this on a boat. You're living the life, aren't you, Jeff? That's awesome. But You guys are entertaining. So Yeah, I'd be happy to say you're entertaining me. Why? I'm enjoying my post. Work up, Dale. Nice. Oh, God. He's got alcohol. Wait till he's living the life dammit! I want to be I want to be you. I'm not driving, so I'm good. So of course I just I'm driving a boat. So I guess I kind of when they voted Electric motor. Very my paranoia is driving over high bridges over bodies of water like a lot like the river. Uh yeah, River pretty much. I actually will go to the extent of taking a different route. Like your Li. I goto a car show call out Pennsylvania and I actually will. Instead of taking root anyone, which is a very high bridge over the Susquehanna River, actually going into the center of Harrisburg, which is not Isis Place, break a very Whoa! Bridge. Uh, that is very close to the water. And now I have no problem with, so I literally I alter my round takes the next half hour, but I don't care. It doesn't freak me out with the first one that comes to mind is the George Washington Bridge. You ever have to take that? Well, yeah, I mean living in northern western New Jersey start certainly. But you know what I realized about my paranoid and this is probably the first level of trying to get over it. If I could see the other end of the bridge like George Washington's a straight line, you can pretty much through the other end. I can't stomach that for some reason. I don't like it, but I can handle it. The one over the Susquehanna River. I'm rude. Anyone in Harrisburg is kind of a long bridge. You really can't see the other side as you approach it. So that's when I get freaked out. What about the Driscoll Bridge? You know the guy? Okay? The one with the high very high on you know that when I used to take quite often, and that one It's very wide. At least it's very wide, right. Maybe that's why I never had a problem with that. Ah, yeah, I never really had a huge problem with that. But that is a good example. But that one Didn't freak me out. Our one more Tappan Zee. Oh, my God. That's what had honestly. That's what had my first panic attack over driving over bridges. I was driving my boss to Ah, event up in Mohegan.

I have to see what Chuck has to say today. Yeah, We always do that. I got to say I'm a staining here abstaining. You're staining my first day back, and I have to hear that. Here we go. Story. One Disney world has closed a masked loophole. Banning park visitors from eating and drinking while they walk as a means to encourage attendees to wear their masks face recovering now required for all guests age to please bring your own face coverings and wear them at all times. Except when dining For swimming, but you must cover up while walking. People were eating as they were walking. Stop that story to the American Medical Association. Has removed all gender specific terms, and they're teaching textbooks and manuals. Dauner terms like Adam's Apple and Achilles tendon. They will be referred to by their medical anatomical names. Story three, The Associated Press announced this week. They will capitalize the word black when referring to black people but would not capitalize the word white when referring to white people because of systemic Inequalities story. One Disneyworld bands eating and drinking while walking story to garner an example an Achilles tendon for medical textbooks and story free associated Pressure is lower case in uppercase. We'll start with all right. Is this the point, Chuck where we should tell them? We did all three of the stories yesterday? I'm kidding. Kidding. Didn't listen to what I figure Turn it back to stood up. I think story three is true. I think that Disney thinks that you should probably wear a mask. So I think the story is the fake story of the day story Number two's phony one for two. Two for two and Steve have to say, I think they're both right For me. It's unanimous today. Story Number two The A banning the term. Adam's Apple and Achilles tendon is 100%. Fake news guys even put you on hold for those times when you follow Chuck and got it right? Over action from him for you know, I don't have any reaction, Callum, either when I'm just sitting there waiting to come back, and we've been asking that for 25 years now, what the hell are you doing?

Good morning Earlier, you mentioned that you know, there's ways to change things in the official in Oregon said their votes there protesting for black lives matter what we're seeing on TV Now is not any of that. It's on ly to destroy and instill fear and intimidate and make Americans miserable because the whole goal is to make everybody so miserable. They're still they'll reach out, start grabbing at straws and hopefully vote for the Democrats. And by the scary thing is, he's shown you what they want. They told you what they want to show you just how far they'll go. They need to be stopped. I hope everybody makes it a point to show up and vote. However, they need to vote vote for anybody who is against this standing up. Unfortunately, there's not too many. The silence is amazing. People are actually encouraging it or saying there's some justification for it. And the voice that stands out to me at Maryland politics that surprises me that they're so silent. Is Ben Cartwright. Because of his position his age and his experience his knowledge of history and probably those people have been victory in the history of Mott. This only goes one way. And he knows especially t to me should be the one of the leading voices against progressive poodle and puppet. Unfortunate Tom. Thanks for the call. It's 7 50 10 minutes before the hour of eight o'clock. No big deal. He's incredible is ReMax Community team. He sold the chins commercial property.

Charlotte San is a lifelong reader. Who Read Her First Short Story Tin Ten? She's fascinated with language having learned Braille Sign Language and most recently Spanish. She's a lifelong volunteer member of the Charlotte Writer's Club and many other organizations and is married very to a kindred spirit spirit. She says a novelist himself Sandy. Welcome to the show. Thank you so sandy. You've been at this writing thing A while you know Dennis your husband husband is going to be on this show to him about the fact that you've got Five books He's got to your three head. I'M GONNA keep that lead you. They will let him catch a lot to think about that about that. You've got another couple of books. You think. Plenty of other books in. I love to write.

This is true. I I enjoy staying busy. Well you are skated until what age were about in my. Let's see I'd already met Dennis so I guess I was in my Late fifties maybe When I I quit you quit because You your children word you might fall on the frozen surfaces and yet you were involved in Talk Wando at the time to I was I was. I've always been an athletic person as well as someone a new likes to read so Dennis is owners PS and QS. Around you right. Talk Cuando and ice skating in August. Yeah right under my thumb insurance. Well you did you do lift weights You Walk Daily. You've done that for for many many years. You said you grew up skating waiting on frozen pause but you also said to me that you You grew up poor poor Pennsylvania and worked through school and And that somehow influenced deriding I think it has particularly influenced the blue car which is set in the mountains of North Carolina and deals with a a young girl age. Twelve who who is poor and It helped me To make that realistic and bonds have courage. I knew what it was like to To go out on the frozen morning with The new car. You're a knew what it was like to go out into a outdoor privy in summer with wasps or winter when you're freezing All those things helped me bring some sensory experiences. I think to those novels in particular and actually aww tangled threads is set at the turn of the nineteenth century. So it It helped me with that too. We're going to get under the covers with those books in just a moment But reading and writing and interesting languages something you've had most of your life right. This is true and still do. I mean you were writing stories at a young engage and You said you learn Braille sidelines and most recently Spanish. So we're we're give sandy languages fascinate. Let me They fascinate me on many levels. There are a challenge there an opportunity to connect with other people through learning Spanish. I've been able to connect with Some of the Hispanics in our community and in particular. I teach them English as a second language which helped people get their citizenship I learned Braille because I was at home not working with the baby and was bored but but I was able to use it to Braille a cookbook for young bride. They've all been very rewarding. And you're an editor at the Charlotte Observer for a number of years and a- As that helped your writing or is it somehow gets you. floss pecking pages as you as you start as you go along It's helped and hindered. It's helped because only once my whole writing career have I suffered from writer's block. It is hindered because my first drafts are incredibly short Yeah because that's what you learn in the newspaper business. Keep it tight and so I have to Learn I had to learn to let the story. Sorry breathe and to expand okay so before we dive under the covers just talking about book covers for second one of the books you're GonNa read from today. is bonds of courage and all that on that front cover. It looks like this could be a A river sort of set in the foothills. Maybe I don't know where would this be said. That is actually only the Susquehanna river into indepence near Towanda Pennsylvania. I'm from Towanda. Pennsylvania rivers are in almost all my novels for for some reason I grew up on a river An imbalance encourage One of the characters fleas downstream the Susquehanna and so that seemed like a fitting cover for.

I decided I wanted to write a book and I chose a mystery because I thought mystery would be rather structure. I would have to have suspects. I'd have to have a clues Things that would help me to Hangar structure my first novel And I also operating on right what you know of veered after that I said it in a mythical Charlotte newspaper mythical shown is as if there were a lot of shroud new service to choose from right. Well I have to say it'd be The physical layout is based exactly on the old Charlene Observer building but the characters are are different. And you say that in that book along the way that You know there's a quest to find to kill her but The person who searching must cope with family secret. That's been buried for years owners in a secret that threatens One of her important relationships. That's true I guess. Another theme perhaps APPS that runs through all of my books is secrets the effects of secrets on relationships both positive and negative. Okay so we started out with a with a body in chapter one awesome deadline for death. We've got to solve it and then you move to To a different kind of store I did. I think the next one I wrote was tangled threads. I went to the Museum of the New South and saw their exhibit from cotton fields. Skyscrapers and I was intrigued. By the whole Piedmont textile mill Story I started to do some research and the next thing I know I'd written tangled threads which is set in a like around little before nineteen hundred Piedmont cotton mill the village mythical again because I wanted to let my characters go down any street that I made up And it deals with the relationship between into Young Girls Ruth and Roseanne rather and Delia and various pass. It they take can. Life's something happens early on that Changes their relationship to one of Being enemies to each other Aw and then. Years later near the end of life The granddaughter comes and To deal you in a nursing home and tells sir she has to come back and confront her enemy and that is about making peace at the end of your life with things you did earlier and secrets you've got also Wanted to explore the relationship between old and young. There aren't as many books as I'd like with really older characters my character after was eighty years old And so that was something else that interests me in that book in your one. One of the Young girls escapes the mill and other Remains behind and you say timing on their lives sort of intertwined and sometimes unexpected and painful ways even fail you say And after returning under their childhood home and they're stunned to find out of that. Some of these secrets you say that have been hidden right. That's right okay. And then you got.

"The black dogs are really difficult because sometimes, you know, sometimes it could be a natural dog that people were saying at work reddish glow in their eyes from lights or something. Right. Exactly. Yeah. But it's it's when people start saying that they're they're seeing them in conjunction with other stuff or the one report. I had said there they were their heads were way too high in the trees. So I don't know if they're we're talking about dogs that are climbing trees, or if you know, the body lists dogs and just their heads. But the the guy reported the, you know, the the dogs with these glowing red eyes where their heads were up in the trees, he said. So when it gets stranger like that I started. Well, there's something else going on here. And I'm I'm actually collecting reports of of these sort of black dog entities east coast as well now, and I've gotten a quite a lot of just like old newspaper articles and stuff that have recorded them. What would you say is the strangest cryptic out there? Based on what you've heard by far. I got a call from a woman named Barbara. She just called me real late one night. Maybe she's a coast to coast listener, she probably is. She called me after midnight. And she said, I do you wanna talk about toad road. Of course, always. And she's she's telling me some various stories about seeing a man that would chase her in a black card. You know, kinda weird stuff. And then she said. The real thing to worry about with the toad, man. And then she kind of glossed over and she told me another story as well. Wait a minute. Let's what's the toad man right back and tell me about this towed, man. And she said, oh, yeah. There's a toad, man. He lives down in the scariest part. She's like, you know, the work. It's real scary down in the hollow by the creek. Yeah. I know exactly what you're talking about. She said. She went out there in the nineteen sixties before the road was closed, and she said we broke down out there and we had a flat tire. And she said, it was terrifying. She said we had to get out of there before night because of the toad man, I said, well, what's the tone, man? What you like what is this? And she said, it's what it sounds like it's he lived in the river, and he comes up out of the river. And he he looks like a toad, man. Now, I did some more research. And of course, there's something called the Loveland frogmen from Ohio that people have reported that are these like, you know, kinda to- people or frog people. But in the area, I found this report this is from nineteen zero five from the Wilkes bar records. Fish walks like, a man York, Pennsylvania, October twenty second people residing along the river, midway between Klein Goldsboro that's about eight miles north of totara. Between client Goldsboro are mystified and some alarmed over the site of a strange creature that has it's a boat in the Susquehanna river, that's far two men, and their wives have seen the thing as it was seen in broad daylight. More credence is given to the story than would be. If it had been seen at night when people are more prone to see things strange creature with our Fisher animal is described as being as large as a man and seen it came out of the water erect like a man and is described as looking like a man without arms. Those persons has seen it declares that they are not the victims of an optical illusion. So there's this other account of this this weird Fishman that's just eight miles north of there. You know, it sounds like a fish man of frogman can these things be the same thing. And if you look in in folk were in there's there's something in eastern European they call folklore, call a vote neck or Astro, man. And these are frog people they said that would live in the waters, and they would sometimes come up in and drown people. And there are a number of drownings associated with the area. So it's it's just a very interesting and very weird report to get I'd never heard that before. But when I got when I found that old newspaper article kind of seemed like almost confirm report is amazing in and they don't they seem to be cropping up all over the place. Now. Stories. Yeah. I it's almost as time goes on. We get these like the crypt gets stranger and stranger. Yet still. We don't hear many stories about people being hurt or attacked the we very few very few. Like, I said, I've I've collected. You know, those those couple of Bigfoot reports where people got hurt, but for the most part they're people get scared, but they're not being hurt..

"In Philadelphia bayton Wharton and Morgan and he on his own accord spent twenty thousand pounds acquiring goods, so ten times what he had been allotted he acquired over forty four tons of trade goods. He acquired over fifty seven hundred white linen shirts to give you a sense on scale. One historian is estimated that that would have been sufficient to clothe half the male Indian population in the Ohio country. He ordered so many white shirts. They ran out of white linen shirts in Philadelphia. They had to hire a group of women to custom so shirts for this trading mission. Right. This is one of the most massive trading missions. I think ever undertaken in colonial America. And of course, Kroger and said, I need to do this. Because if we can't show this insanity the native Americans expect they're going to think that they're going to be duped that we're trying to dupe them into an alliance when we're still trying to subjugate them. He also had a plan that he said look trade is currently suspended because of the war and unable to effect peace. Trade is going to open, and I'll be able to flood the market and reap enormous profit in this too. So this is one of those instances where self interest and good intentions intermingled on the frontiers. This event hosted by the American revolution institute of the society of Cincinnati. We're hearing from author Patrick's bureau American history. Now, the problem with Kroger plan became apparent as soon as that huge pack train started to head west. The pack train leaders began confronting colonial resistance as soon as they cross the Susquehanna river, and this resistance really reflects what I think is the third perspective on the future of the British empire and the west. What they were encountering were people who had experienced over a decade of war, and it come to form a far different vision. Not only of the west, but also of how politics should function in the empire. So first off they believed deeply that the British empire should be an expanding empire. Not a restrained empire like those Great Britain had envisioned. They also had fought over a decade of war. It had come to what I call them. The book a racialist view of native Americans. They had come to suspect every native American as being an inherent enemy who could not be trusted. And so the idea of an open road in trade was an anathema to them. And finally there had developed through this war a fear of the east in the elite, especially traders. They said the trader serve their own interests. And did not care about the frontier. People who faced warfare they blame the assembly for not representing them. And in fact, the colonial legislature had thirty six representatives in it. Twenty six of whom came from Philadelphia, and the two outlying counties around Philadelphia bucks, and Chester the remaining ten came from the frontier so historical demographers has gone back and tried to figure out what the population was really like. And it turns out that the population was probably equal between frontier counties and those in the east, and it's a one of their complaints, and probably the one that was underlying everything is we're not represented in the assembly, and because of that we were not you were not willing to provide us with the defense and military supports the we expected during the seven years war. And so adding to all of this fear was the route the traders decided to take now the route that would have made logical sense was along something called Forbes road Forbes road had been cut during the seven years war. It was an official kings road. It was lined with forts and anybody traveling west would want to go on that for protection, and you can see that road..
