According to Yankee Dictionary: A Compendium of Useful and Entertaining Expressions Indigenous to New England, by Charles Haywood, “night mail” is the name “given to a New England through train that rattles across the countryside during the hours of darkness with its sleeping cars, mail, express, a smoker, and a coach with a few dozing lumberjacks and college boys traveling cheap, with perhaps a milk car or two on the head end.”In that same amiable spirit, we’d like to present The Night Mail Podcast from Felchville Village in Reading, Vermont, hosted by us, Gerry Marletta and Tony Pikramenos. We’ll chat about this and that, discuss matters of local interest, and offer up simple amusements to pass the time. You can find us on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Amazon Music, and other podcast platforms. A new episode drops every couple of weeks. The town library website (readinglibrary.org) also has a link to episodes and information. The email address for the podcast is nightmailpod@gmail.com. Or you can write us a note, postcard, or letter. Address it to Night Mail, then put it in the little free library that sits in the front yard of the town library. No stamp required.
