    We talk about three creatures that came from lakes: The Gorton Turtle, the Silver Lake Serpent, and "Georgie" the Lake George Monster. Nothing really scary, but some good tall tales.

    David L. Brainard and Frederick F. Kislingbury both signed up to explore the Artic Circle on the ill fated Lady Franklin Bay Expedition. The outcome for each of them was very different. *warning* talk of cannibalism.

    Sea07Epi12 Neil R Jones

    Fulton, NY was the home and resting place of a science fiction author that may have been forgotten, but his ideas have lived on in many modern sci-fi, comics, and anime stories.

    Skip this episode if you want. We had issues getting a regular episode together. So instead we talk about some of the hikes we took in New York and some of the interesting finds along those trails.

Audio issues.

I love the content of this podcast and think it has so much awesome potential. My issue is that the recording audio is so terrible, even having my sound maxed and my car sound maxed, it is still very quiet. I hope if it continues, the recording quality is changed. I do hope it continues though. I love the content and learning about upstate NY.
