During the era when Roots was televised, my grandmother researched the family tree. It turns out that we are descended from both Billington and Bradford. This podcast provided more details than I had previously known. Next up is to read a couple of the books, having already read Bradford's. When speculating on when and where would I go if I had access to a time machine, my answer is always to the wedding a few generations when the two lines married. Seems like it could be a fun ceremony to be at!

I've been listening for a few years, loved the entertainment and information, however, this is my nod to say goodbye, I'm unsubscribing. The incessant ads for other podcasts alone is nauseating... the fact that the ads are an echo chamber of ever more extreme woke content only leads me to feel I need to apologize for my very existence. This is toxic and skewing everything to unbalanced content agenda. #RIP

If you want an example of open pit mining; Google the Berkley Pit, Butte Montana. Ugliest thing in my state!

Biden sounds like he's on Nitrous Oxide. Oh wait, he's just a demented socialist like most Democrats.
