Great Stuff from Cape Cod!

In My Footsteps: A Cape Cod and New England Podcast is a great podcast about life on Cape Cod and in New England. The host, a middle-aged man of the world, is not only a photographer and author, but also has a unique perspective on various topics. These subjects range from travel to Cape Cod nostalgia, including stories about memorable places like Guido Murphy's and Pufferbellies that will certainly ring a foggy bell for those who were present. Additionally, he dives into all things related to the 80s and 90s. His discussions are accompanied by engaging lists that will always cause great debate. Check out this podcast!

Another Cape Codder

Once again Christopher, I wanted to thank you for your content. The blast down memory lane has been epic and your sense of humor you have is very much on par with my own. I appreciate the history lessons of the Cape and your deep appreciate towards nature and the preservation of this man-made island. Keep spreading the love that you have for our home…….and remember we’re becoming the old men that need to keep the stories alive and keep this amazing location going for other generations to enjoy the way you and I have.
Love the show - much respect!
