Podcasts are great. You can listen to them anytime, anywhere. Sort of like the old infomercial trope, "enjoy it in the car, in the bath or with friends". But, there are times when more than just a few people want to enjoy the lessons of a podcast and inviting 25 friends or colleagues to a shower stall to listen to a podcast might be a tad awkward. (You learn that one the hard way, let me tell you.) So now, TSLoD is offering live talks and presentations! Check out the options on the ON THE ROAD tab and choose from one of three presentation topics!
It has finally come to pass! The looooooooong awaited (and by that, I mean, I've been annoyed people for over a year about this new episode being ALMOST ready) but now, it is! Go to the Episode 2 page and enjoy the two-parter episode for Graffiti, which walks you through the history of The Dodge Tavern, in Walpole, NH, a long lost gravestone and the many families and events that happened under that roof. Technically, we should consider them TWO roofs, which is partly semantics and partly a very dorky joke...which you will most certainly get, once you've listened to the show!!
Thanks for your patience! I hope you'll think it is worth the wait!
Join us for the live premier of Episode 2: Graffiti, April 29, 2018!
The SLOD is joining forces with Stage 33 Live in a winner-take-all, cross promotional extravaganza! Please come down to 33 Bridge Street, Bellows Falls, VT on Sunday, April 29 2018, 6 pm, for a live showing of Episode 2: Graffiti.
More information about this premier can be found on Stage 33 Live's Facebook page and via the Stage 33 Live page for this show.
Now you may be asking, Gail, how can I watch a podcast? Good question. Here's a good answer: I've put together a slideshow of historic pictures and maps to accompany the podcast. So the live version ends up playing more like a movie (and runs about 80 minutes) and you sit with other people to watch for that communal experience. I'll be there to introduce the show, take questions after, as well as some of the voice actors and experts that lent their talents to the episode.
If you can't make the live show, don't worry, the slideshow and an audio-only version of the episode will be made available on this website after the premier!
Mark you calendars and as I like to say, "Be there AND square!" Because history nerds rule.
Welcome to the NEWS page for TSLoD! The latest news is that, hey, my website is finally done and you can find this podcast I've been blathering on about for a year!
Episode 1: Epidemic, is up and running, complete with annotated photos. Episode 2: Graffiti and Episode 3: Captive, are currently in post-production, which is just fancy insider lingo that means "I've gotten most of the crap done but need to find 15 hours to finish editing the blasted thing". They are coming soon but I do have the synopses and some photos for each to give you a taste.
As for this page: my plan is to use this page to post a selection of "Q & A's" or "FAQ's" type forum. This is assuming people will have questions or comments, let alone that they might be frequent. Never hurts to be prepared, right?
So check back and see what puts the NEW in NEWS! Also, will be getting that social media up and running as well.
