THANK YOU!!!

It was super important that someone put this together and I’m so thankful it was you two. You did an excellent job with this podcast. You guys rocked the historical research, clearly putting an insane amount of effort into getting it right. Every Miamian should listen to this podcast! Completely agree with your commentary that nobody knows much about the fascinating history of Miami but that upon learning it (thanks to you guys) we can appreciate our beautiful city so much more. Please write a book on this topic!!

Highly recommended! Thank you!

Recently stumbled on to this podcast. Fist I’d like to thank you for putting this together. As an almost native Miamian, migrated here when I was ten, it has given me a completely different outlook as to where Miami came from. As you guys mentioned, Henry Flagler and his railroad was as far as I knew of Miami. Keep the good work up guys. This is a must for anyone who lives in our wonderful city.
