In this episode, I provide highlights of my visit to Wesleyan University in Middletown Connecticut as well as my more recent visit to the Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies.
I talk about viewing a Common Loon at Picnic Point!
Said bird was viewed in company with the great birder Dexter Patterson and Dan Fallon!
I also introduce Edward E. Baptist my next guest. His work focuses on the history of the 19th-century United States, particularly the history of the enslavement of African Americans in the South. He is writing a book enslaved captive’s experience of the slave trades and forced migrations, the systems of labor that emerged, and the economic and political and cultural consequences for women and men and children.
He also owns a farm with his wife in the Fingerlakes region of New york. And he is an AVID Cyclist too.
