This is a very enjoyable podcast about what's interesting and worthwhile in everyday places in Connecticut and around New England.

They're appreciative of everything but lead us toward some of the more neglected or disregarded towns and cities for a slightly alternative approach to local tourism. Get ready for a gentle takedown of celebrated locales like Burlington Vermont and Mystic Connecticut and instead enjoy a walk through New London or Hartford's riverfront.
